My Specialist Experience Teaching Children to Develop Fine Motor Skills

When helping children to develop their fine motor skills, I have found that the use of fun games, creative activities and supportive resources work best. It is important to develop confidence and motivation by working specific muscles in a fun and creative way. There are also certain resources that work well to support children in school. Support can involve the development of control when mark making or writing, manipulating pencils and crayons to colour and draw, holding pens and pencils correctly to enable better presentation and support for longer written tasks, using cutlery, using scissors safely and accurately, buttoning and unbuttoning and using computer keyboards.
