The development of fine motor skills in early childhood will affect the physical and mental development of your child. Fine motor development allows them to become increasingly independent. This can build confidence and increase self-esteem and will, in turn, have a positive influence on their social interactions and school success.
Your child will go through 3 stages of development before acquiring fine motor skills:
- Whole arm development
- Whole hand development
- Pincer and pincher grasp
There are many fun activities that you can do with your child at home to help train their fine motor skills.
