Fine Motor Skills are such an important part of everyday life. Many of our children with special needs have problems in this area. Occupational Therapists will often recommend exercises to do at home to improve these skills. Fine Motor Skills are the ability to make movements using the small muscles in our hands and wrists. We rely on these skills to do key tasks in school, work, and in everyday life. Fine Motor Skills are complex and involve a coordinated effort between the brain and muscles.
