Occupational therapy for Poor fine-motor and gross-motor skills

Gross Motor Activities For Toddlers, Gross Motor Activities For Preschoolers, Fine Motor Skills Development

After hearing this we have almost immediately positioned our hands to catch an object ever since we were a kid. It comes automatically to us without much thinking and has been like this ever since we started playing outdoors for the first time.

However, in some children, this is not the usual case. The activity described above belongs to motor skills, which are a set of abilities that help you perform regular motor activities.

Fine-motor and gross-motor skills

Motor skills cover all the Motor Activities performed by the body and are differentiated into 2 categories; Fine-motor skills and Gross-motor skills.

Fine Motor Skill is the ability of the brain to make use of our fine muscles and bones, such as fingers, wrists to accomplish a detailed activity. Examples of such are, picking up a pencil, writing, brushing your teeth, etc.

Gross Motor Skill involves the movement of large muscles such as those of our arms and legs to accomplish activities that require more energy. These movements include activities such as walking, running, etc.

Poor fine-motor and gross-motor skills

The previously mentioned skills might look very easy, but this is because we have learned them by doing them repetitively in our day-to-day lives. This, unfortunately, is not easy for some kids.

Some children are unable to perform daily simple activities because it is difficult for them to learn them thoroughly while being taught. This is the reason why they keep on doing it again and again just like they did it the first time. This appears clumsy and not practiced, but in fact, is not the first time the child is doing it.

This is a sign of the child having poor fine and gross motor skills, which could create a barrier in its development. Poor motor skills can also lead to an effect on the cognitive development of the kid.

We know this sounds scary but there is a way to treat it: Therapy.

If you notice that your child is not able to perform everyday activities even after doing them for a long time, it is important for you to consult an Occupational Therapist. The OTs are professionals which examine your child and study their mental pattern to devise a unique therapy for them.

The therapy includes activities and sessions in which the OT aids your child in understanding and refining their motor skills. These sessions move ahead and may take time, but therapies have changed the lives of many such children.

Poor motor skills can be tough for the child, but with therapy, they can eventually get better at and lead their lives normally.

Therapy for improving Motor Skills in Adults

Like children, adults can also be diagnosed with poor fine and gross motor skills. This can be because of many reasons, it can either be present since childhood or could be developed because of a neurological injury.

Our brain is the one that controls our entire body and if there is an injury caused to this organ, it can affect our motor skills as well. This is what happens with some individuals who lose their motor skills because of a neurological injury or damage.

In this case, the adult has to go through learning everything from the very beginning and could have reduced motor skills. This, however, can be treated by consulting an Occupational Therapist.

Occupational therapy is an efficient way to improve individuals who have lost their motor skills. The therapy consists of unique sessions and activities which practically help the person to slowly start learning simple motor skills such as brushing their teeth or picking up an object
