Fine Motor Skill Milestones. In this episode, I discuss the fine motor skills that I consider to be “milestones” for kids in the ages of birth-three years. I also present a research study on handwriting interventions with at-risk kindergarteners.
I found these pencils recently, and they are awesome! Triangular shaped to assist with adaptive grasp for handwriting. No need for additional grips to add on to the pencils. They also have a thicker lead so they don’t break as easily as other mechanical pencil leads!
On this episode, I begin discussion about the ATNR (Asymmetrical Tonic Neck Reflex). I will talk about what it looks like, when it should integrate, and what it might look like if it doesn’t integrate in preschool and school aged kids.

Hey everyone! This book does an awesome job of explaining why we therapists care so much about infant motor skill development! It is a good resource we can use with parents to help them see why babies go through the motor milestones.
