Therapy Just Got Fun: Fine Motor Toys
As a parent, teacher or therapy to a child with special needs, you know better than anyone the importance of fine motor skills. These skills, which focus on strengthening muscles and movement in the hands, fingers, mouth and feet, are key to helping us with all sorts of everyday activities. We use fine motor skills to eat, get dressed, play and write, so developing them is of prime importance. Though it seems counterintuitive, these skills are not innate. We must teach children - including those with and without special needs - how to hone them over time. Fine motor toys for children provide a fun and practical way to do that!
