Children's occupational therapy helps develop fine motor skills
Why are fine motor skills important?
Fine motor skills are vital for doing everyday activities like buttoning up a shirt, using utensils to eat, tying shoelaces, cutting with scissors and writing. As adults, we use fine motor skills so often in our daily lives that it’s easy to take them for granted. If a young child is unable to do these everyday tasks, it can affect their self-confidence, ability to develop self-care and independence skills, and also their academic performance.
Click here to learn 10 ways to improve your child's fine motor skills. Once you have learned these 10 ways we recommend next reading about the important benefits of pretend play for young kids. You can out those benefits here.

Child occupational therapists (OT) at Inspiro support children, with their families, to become more independent in everyday activities. A child occupational therapist will help children with their hand skills (holding a pencil, drawing, cutting with scissors, playing with small objects etc), body skills (balancing, jumping, catching a ball, running etc) and self-care skills (dressing, toileting and sleeping etc). They will also support a child’s ability to concentrate, pay attention and manage sensory sensitivities.
