Learn more about fine motor delays and how to improve fine motor skills with our easy-to-use reference library. Fine motor delays refer to difficulties using or coordinating small muscles and movements. Parents, teachers, and child caregivers may notice that children with fine motor delays have difficulty grasping small objects or performing synchronized tasks. This can interfere with a host of age-related activities, including holding toys, tying shoes, using crayons, or brushing teeth. Since fine motor delays can indicate anything from shortened limbs to problems with the nervous system, we provide an extensive listing of resources to tackle every scenario. We are also committed to offering practical resources to help improve childhood dexterity. These integrative tools include information on sensory motor activities, exercises for the extremities, and curriculum tasks that help children reach developmental milestones.
