About the Checklist:

Brief-write up

Fine motor skills are activities that require precise movements with the small muscles in your hands and wrists. Fine motor skills involves the coordination of your child's small muscles, such as those in their hands, wrists, and fingers, with their eyes. Fine motor skills are the small muscles of the body that allow you to do things like write, grasp small objects, and fasten your clothes.

Fine motor skills are useful in most school activities as well as in everyday life. Fine motor skill deficits can impair a child's ability to eat, write legibly, use a computer, turn pages in a book, and perform personal care tasks such as dressing and grooming. If your child has been identified with fine motor weaknesses, this may have an impact on their education.

Although children develop at different rates, having an approximate timeline for when they reach certain milestones can help you determine if your child is progressing normally.
