Product description

THE guide to understanding fine motor development in children with Down syndrome and helping them develop daily living skills from birth through early adolescence is newly revised and updated. The author, an occupational therapist who has worked extensively with children with Down syndrome, is also the parent of a teenager with Down syndrome. She offers parents and professionals dozens of easy, home-and school-based activities, illustrated with b&w photos, which help children gradually acquire the skills they need for fine motor development. Readers learn how to incorporate activities into everyday activities and routines and to emphasize tasks that children can use throughout life -- play, self-help, printing, cutting with scissors, and computer use. New to this edition is a chapter on sensory processing, preprinting activities, and how to introduce related concepts (up & down; top & bottom), as well as more info on ways to help kids learn self-help skills.
