Occupational therapists believe that the hand should be prepared before introducing the use of writing tools. Fine motor skills are the basis for the preparation of the hand. Fine motor skill development is not only essential for handwriting; it is a necessity for daily living: dressing, eating and computer use.
Fine motor skills are the coordination of small muscle movements especially the coordination of finger movement with vision. These skills are acquired as children, and humans secure and perfect them throughout life. Products and toys that can develop these motor skills can be found below.
