Making button letters and names

I love working on skills while working on skills, so using letters and buttons together is a perfect combination. We can work on fine motor and motor planning skills while talking about letters and the letters of the child’s name.

First you make a strip with buttons about 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart. The letters are about 2 inches.

The plus about doing button tasks is that you use so many skills when doing them. I may not have a buttoning goal, but when working on button, I am working on visual motor skills, finger dexterity, motor planning, fine motor coordination, bimanual skills, and so much more.

    1. I assume that you mean dyspraxia, meaning difficulty with praxis, which is motor planning. It does make motor tasks more difficult, but it does not mean that he won’t be able to do school. Daniel Radcliffe who played Harry Potter in the films has dyspraxia.
