Fine motor skills are small muscle movements of the fingers in coordination with the eyes. We need to develop the strength and dexterity of these small muscles to enable your child to hold a pencil confidently, manipulate a computer or tablet or even play a musical instrument.
If your child struggles with writing, it might be because they don't have the strength and they need to develop this. Or they could struggle with their dexterity and need futher support to develop their fine motor skills. These skills can be developed through everyday activities, such as, doing buttons and zips when getting dressed, setting the table and pouring juice. Please see the pages above for some suggestions for learning through play at home.
