Fine Motor   We will be working on developing hand skills including grasp, release, two hands working together in a cooperative way and manipulation skills to encourage development of fine motor skills.   e.g. stacking 6 or 7 blocks, turning pages, turning motion with hand, threading, holding a pencil in their preferred hand with the thumb and first two fingers and imitating a vertical line, mostly using their preferred hand.

Communication   We will be focusing on building the range of nouns (naming words) and verbs (action words) that your child can understand and use. They will continue to have opportunities to practise following directions in a group environment and around activities that are not typically a part of their every day routines.

Gross Motor   During this program, we continue to focus on core stability & the development of your child’s independence with their mobility skills (ie rolling, crawling, walking etc), including balance, strength, endurance (stamina) and appreciation of where their body is in space and in relation to other objects/people in their environment. These skills are practiced during sessions and strategies provided for you to work on at home.

Problem Solving / Play   We focus on your child’s ability to:  - engage in pretend play that imitates situations that are highly familiar (e.g. brushing hair or eating some food).   We will also be looking to see if your child is beginning to use objects ‘symbolically’ in play (e.g. holding a cup to their ear pretending it is a phone).
