“When Should My Child Be Able to Do That?”
Sensory-Motor Development for Children Ages 3-5 Years

The question I hear most from parents is “When should my child be able to do that?” From dressing themselves, to sitting still, to learning to read and write their names, we all want our children to become independent and successful both at home and at school. The development of fine motor, visual motor, visual perception, gross motor, sensory processing, and self-help skills lays the foundation upon which children can successfully participate in their daily life activities.

Please join me to learn more specific information on when your child will develop various motor skills. You will also receive fun home activities that you and your children can participate in throughout the school year to promote carryover of their sensory-motor development.
