A fantastic Australian publication developed by a paediatric occupational therapist in response to demand for quick and easy motor skill programs for children.
This easy to use resource for therapists, teachers, aides and parents features 5 colour coded areas of motor development that incorporate the whole body. These include core strength, shoulder stability, gross motor coordination, fine motor coordination, and pencil control skills.
There are 100 mix and match activities of varying degrees of difficulty that can be tailored to each child, or group of children, quickly and easily. It’s beneficial for children who experience handwriting difficulties as well as general coordination and motor development issues. There’s also a star system that allows for evaluation of skill level and the ability to track progress and set goals.
