Fine Motor Improvement Group


OT for Kids is a private company, who only hire professional and reliable therapists. We offer a range of groups. One of which being the fine motor improvement group. The fine motor and improvement group aims at improving the co-ordination and strength of the hands needed for fine movements. Children with fine motor difficulties often struggle with:
  • Getting dressed
  • Tying shoe laces
  • Writing
  • Completing games such as Jenga and coin slot games
  • Cutting and gluing
  • Colouring and drawing
The occupational therapists would assess the specific aspects of fine motor tasks that the child is finding difficult and provide activities and therapy aimed at improving and developing both the strength and co-ordination of the muscles in the hands.

It is not uncommon for children with fine motor difficulties to also have poor handwriting, as the muscles needed to complete fine motor tasks are also the muscles needed to produce the intricate movements needed for writing. The occupational therapists would work with your child over the course of the group aiming to meet two clear goals set out in week one.

High quality and engaging sessions have been delivered focussing on improving fine motor skills, organisational skills and memory skills... This is proving to be an extremely effective provision.

Goals of a fine motor improvement group


The two main aims of the fine motor improvement group are:
  • Improve cutting skills and other fine motor related school based tasks
  • Improve the underlying aspects of fine motor skills, enabling children to perform better in everyday tasks

Benefits of group therapy:

  • Build social skills
  • Tailored functional improvements for each group
  • Realise your child may not be the only one experiencing these difficulties
  • Talk to other parents with similar concerns
  • Discuss any concerns or issues you may have with therapist
  • Reduced rate per hour compared to 1:1 therapy
Following the group, you will receive a report, containing an outline of how the group has been, a summary of your child’s skills in relation to the activities completed in the group and any recommendations regarding regular therapy or equipment.

In summary, the fine motor group would be useful for children who are slow at getting dressed, have poor handwriting, and find fine motor tasks difficult. If you think your child is having any of the difficulties outlined above, and would like to be considered for a group then please email office@otforkids.co.uk or call us on 0330 223 0888

What people say about us...

OT for Kids have been a great help in aiding my son Jake with coping with his dyspraxia both at home and in school. They came out to our house and completed the assessment at home.

The assessment and report proved beneficial in our discussions with Jake's school and we are very pleased with the outcome the report has helped us achieve.
Jackie, parent.
At our school, there are many children who have difficulty forming letters correctly, concentrate or perform well in P.E, which can impact greatly on their learning. With the support and OT Groups available from OT for Kids, these children have made great progress and are now at a level which is not so concerning. As a teacher and SENCO, I thoroughly enjoyed working (and learning) from the Occupational Therapist.
Emily, SENCO and Teacher.
As a case manager, I regularly deal with many private companies. I found OT for Kids to be highly professional, reliable and provide me with flexible appointments that suited both me and my clients. The OT completed a comprehensive assessment and report, which was not only clear, concise and an accurate reflection of the difficulties, but it was returned to me quickly.
John, Case Manager.
