Independent Mealtime For Kids With Motor Impairments
Using mealtimes to promote independence, self-care skills, and social interaction.
Getting a good grip on crayons
If your child holds crayons clenched in a fist while coloring, try giving Chubbi Stump Crayons or Paint Sticks instead of long crayons. The short thick shape promotes the use on a tripod (three fingered) grasp. You can encourage the use of a mature wrist position by having the child draw on an upright easel.
