In this beautiful publication, occupational therapist Suzanne Wilkinson offers parents and early childhood educators ideas and activities to help children develop their hand skills. Clear photos, complemented by simple and informative text, provide readers with a practical and valuable resource.
From the opening and closing finger movement of the newborn baby, humans develop the ability to use their hands in intricate and complex ways. Most children naturally develop hand dexterity through everyday play activities. For others, however, fine motor tasks can be challenging and frustrating and some youngsters may not readily develop the competence and confidence in hand skills necessary for school readiness.
Hands at Play makes fine motor activities fun and rewarding and will help children develop the hand dexterity and strength needed for independence and play.
Hands at Play is available from Noah’s Ark, priced at $24.95. All funds will support Noah’s Ark WA. Contact Noah's Ark on (08) 9328 1598 to purchase.
