Motor Development

It's all within my grasp!

Through practice and repetition, children can develop their fine and gross motor skills, leading to improved health, learning, and confidence. Fine and gross motor development involve using both small and large muscles. Parents, doctors, and therapists have long noted that children with autism tend to have delays in motor skills. Working on motor skills can help improve skills like handwriting and social development. Fine motor skills allow children to perform actions using small muscles in the hands, while strengthening hand-eye coordination and isolated finger movements.

Fine motor skills can be practiced in a variety of fun ways from picking up pieces while playing a game to putting together a puzzle or stacking items. Gross motor skills are used to organize and carry out actions or movements with the large muscles of the body. Developing gross motor skills requires a lot of movement. Sitting, crawling, standing, cruising and walking are examples of the progression of gross motor development and are followed by the ability to run, climb, kick, jump and throw.

These Handy Scoopers are a terrific way to help kids develop the muscles and coordination in their hands. My daughter Emily, who has developmental delays, has fun using the Handy Scoopers for lots of different activities.
