Fine and Gross Motor Development Screener (3-4 Years)
The following questions are based on clinical milestone guidelines. Answering "no" to a question does not mean that your child has a fine or gross motor delay or disorder, answering "no" to many or most of the questions may mean that further evaluation or a free in-person screener at Spark Therapies may be recommended to ensure your child is developing as they should be.

What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy or OT, is a form of movement therapy that helps kids who struggle with everyday fine and gross motor tasks that are crucial to their development and lives. Occupational therapy can also be used to help kids who struggle with self-regulation and sensory processing issues and improves confidence in the classroom, at home, and at play. A therapist uses a variety of fun and creative movements, exercises, tools, and pieces of equipment to best meet the needs of each child.

Fine Motor
