Beyond Play-Fine Motor Fun

My students need materials and tools to improve their fine motor skills such as rubbing crayons, lacing bears, and LEGOS, etc.

My Students

I'm a school based occupational therapist, and I usually treat kids in small groups. The kids receive OT services because they struggle with their fine motor and/or visual motor skills.

Most of my students have been diagnosed with autism, ADHD, special learning disabilities, etc.

They work very hard in the classroom but still need some support to be successful in their academics. My school is very supportive and tries to get as much resources as possible for the kids.

My Project

My students will be able to use these tools and materials (rubbing crayons, lacing bears, and LEGOS)to create art projects and to play games which facilitate their fine motor and visual motor skills using well-designed activities. They will not only improve their skills, but also enjoy the activities made possible by these fascinating items.

If my students could have the opportunity to be provided access to these items, their skills would improve faster as a result of their willingness to engage with the tools and materials included.

Furthermore, the students will not only benefit in the classroom, but also outside of the classroom in everyday life, as no one can function fully in life with poor fine and visual motor skills.
