The Missing Piece: Fine Motor Tasks for Students with Disabilities

Help me give my students an opportunity to increase their fine motor skills and working together to complete a given activity, such as puzzles and playing a variety of games.

My Students

My students are enrolled in a life skills program at AHE. Each student experiences a significant disability, and no two students are the same.

One of the most crucial skills my students need is the skill of working independently.

Many of the learning tasks that my students do are supported by my classroom teaching staff. Each skill they can complete independently makes them more likely to gain pre-vocational skills.

AHE is a Title I school. Many families struggle to provide all the supplies that students need to be prepared for school. Your donation will help students to experience independent activities that would otherwise not be provided.

My Project

Having good fine motor skills allow students to use a writing tool, cut a piece of paper, pick up objects off or on a surface as well as manipulate a zipper or buttons on clothing. Students who experience disabilities can find these tasks to be troublesome or challenging. By giving students the chance to practice these skills, it allows them the opportunity to make growth in the area of fine motor.

Puzzles and fine motor games are a great way to increase student's participation in working on their skills in fine motor development.

With these additional floor puzzles, preschool puzzle library, and fine motor games, students will continue to show improvement in this area. Not only will fine motor development increase, but others areas as well like social skills, matching ability, counting and much more.
