Fine motor skills

Help your child learn to use the small muscles in their arms and hands.


As your child grows and develops, they begin to use hand movements known as fine motor skills to hold, manipulate, and move objects. These hand movements are guided by the eyes and the muscles, joints, bones, and sensations in their hands.

Pediatric rehabilitation can help if your child is having challenges in these areas of development.
