For a long time, I’ve been holding objects – I probably held onto your finger the day I was born! But when it comes to the “right” way to hold objects, I’m still learning. I might be able to feed myself with a spoon, but still use my whole hand to do it. I’m finally ready to start learning the “proper” way to hold objects with my hands. Encourage me to hold my utensils with just the fingers I need to do so; help me hold crayons and pencils with just fingers instead of grasping them in my palm. I won’t be able to hold small objects properly all the time but showing me how you hold things and helping me move my fingers the same way will help me grow this skill every time you work with me. Be patient with me, I will take some time to learn this new skill!
