FINE/GROSS MOTOR ASSESSMENT
Children who are delayed in their fine and gross motor skills will often struggle to develop foundation skills necessary for education. From a very early age they will fall behind their peers due to deficits in these vital key areas.
In nursery these little ones will often avoid sitting and engaging in colouring, drawing, fine motor activities. They may lack good concentration and listening skills.
These vital foundation movement skills need to be addressed. Not only to aid the child’s planning and organisation, but release the child’s capacity to improve their attention and focus in the class. By addressing these vital areas, it would also serve the purpose of aiding a child’s self- regulation more effectively.

To improve a child’s motor development, to improve their organisation and attention and to engage the child in tasks that are currently challenging.

Our therapists at Tree Tops are passionate about working with educational staff to grow their knowledge and skills. School staff will be trained and supported when learning to work with children affected by sensory and motor difficulties to integrate the programmes designed for them.
Many children with learning difficulties will have sensory processing difficulties, causing them to struggle with every day experiences like movement and sound. We will assess and design individual programmes and work with teachers on how to implement these into children's routines.
Tree Tops believe all young children benefit from our therapeutic activities and interventions. Whilst we can provide programmes for developmentally delayed children, an integrated approach into the nursery environment ensures no children are overlooked.
