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.

Call 9028 0153 for more information or to make an appointment

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.
