Fine Motor Skills
Some children find difficulty with their pencil control and using scissors and other tools. These children benefit from specific activities to strengthen their muscles and develop their fine motor control. Recommended activities from occupational therapists are used as appropriate. In class, pencil grips are available to try out, and for children who have exceptional difficulty with writing, we have a small number of writing slopes available. For the older children, we have a number of Alphasmart word processors for use with longer pieces of work.
