Fine motor skills is an issue for many with cerebral palsy, myself included. Basically to explain what this means for me I will use an example: intricate tasks such as sewing a button onto something or stringing a string of beads is very difficult. But I hear you all saying how often do I do these examples. I know probably not all that often. But let me ask you this how often do you do up a button in a day? Probably fairly often if you have buttons on your clothes. That is a task I find difficult because yes that requires fine motor skills.
I am sure if I think about it I can think of more examples but this. But the point is if you are mindful you will become more aware. For the record, I avoid clothing with buttons because of fine motor skills and also because I need to hold onto the grab bar when standing and doing buttons up with one hand.
Toddlers and fine motor skills
Toddlers are a great example of poor motor skills because they generally haven’t figured out things like the pinch grasp. They with age and through play get better at this skill but for me and others with cerebral palsy, because of the cerebral palsy we struggle to master this.
