Skill Development: Fine Motor- As students pick up objects with the tweezers, they are working on motor planning and eye-hand coordination (visual-motor integration) and refining the manual skills needed for writing, drawing and daily living. Sensory Integration- Students who are hypersensitive to textures can participate in tactile play using tweezers to hold and move objects.
