Solution Name:​​ Hand Coordination Program​​ 

SKU:​​ GHACAOT

Grasping and hand coordination are involved in smaller movements that occur in the wrists, hands, fingers, feet and toes. They involve smaller actions such as picking up objects between the thumb and finger, writing carefully, and even blinking

Symmetrical movements– Both hands do the same thing at the same time.  An example of this would be pulling up​​ pants or socks.  Other activities that can work on this skill include 

  • holding a squeeze bottle with both hands at the midline to paint.

  • Jumping rope

  • Jumping Jacks

  • Catching a ball with two hands

​​ Alternating Movements– Using the two extremities in​​ alternating motions.  You will see alternating bilateral coordination with swimming or climbing a ladder. Activities to work on this skill include:

  • Riding a bike

  • Marching

  • Walking​​ 

Dominant hand/Non-dominant hand– Using one hand to perform a task while​​ the other assists is needed for many fine motor skills.  This type of bilateral coordination is needed for writing and cutting with scissors.  Activities to work on this skill include:

  • Threading

  • Lacing cards

  • Coloring

  • Writing

  • Tying shoes

  • Gardening​​ 

  • Jewelry​​ Making​​
