OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY TIPS & TOOLS
HAND STRENGTH AND DEXTERITY
Fine motor skills involve the use of the fingers, hands, and arms for reaching, grasping and manipulating objects. Children need to build strong fine motor skills and dexterity for everything at school: writing, cutting, drawing, playing, leisure skills, self-help and more.
