Motor Skills Tools

Motor skills development influences the ability to control and coordinate movements of the body, including fine motor skills (small muscle movements), gross motor skills (large muscle movements) and oral motor skills (movements of the mouth, lips, and tongue). These skills are essential for a wide range of everyday tasks, such as:

  • Self-care activities, like dressing, feeding and grooming
  • Academic performance, like handwriting, using tools and utensils
  • Social and play interactions, like throwing, catching, climbing
  • Exploration and independence, like navigating the environment and manipulating objects

Developing strong motor skills helps children gain confidence, improve their physical and cognitive abilities, and foster a sense of accomplishment and well-being.

Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skills involve the coordination of small muscle movements in the hands, fingers, and eyes. Practising and improving fine motor skills supports a child's ability to grasp, manipulate, and use tools. Developing strong fine motor skills can strengthen a child's grip, hand-eye coordination, and overall dexterity, which support activities like writing, drawing, and self-care.

Oral Motor Skills

Oral motor skills are the movements and coordination of the mouth, lips, and tongue muscles. These skills affect a child's ability to eat and swallow. Developing strong oral motor skills using sensory chews can help support children not only with regulation but also with feeding and oral function.

Gross Motor Skills

Gross motor skills involve the coordination of large muscle movements, like those used for walking, running, jumping, and climbing. Developing strong gross motor skills through motion can boost a child's physical abilities, balance, and overall muscle control, which can lead to a better relationship with fitness. This will boost their confidence and the ability to engage in a wide range of activities and social interactions.
