Essay: Child development-Adaptive Fine Motor
This is another mitigatory intervention aimed at helping children with motor problems develop appropriate fine skills for day-to-day activities. Small muscle movements could be impaired by poorly developed fine motor elements. This leads to poor coordination of the small movements for example in figure movement and eye (Robert, 1986, p. 58).
Therefore, fine motor skills are aimed at improving these small movements and enable these children develop writing skills. Perfection of these skills is only guaranteed if a child is assisted to perform these skills repeatedly or more often. Occupational therapy recommends that the hand should be well prepared to hold anything for example a pen for it to succeed in whatever activity in this case writing.
