Teaching functional scissor skills

  Enroll in Course

This course provides a step by step curriculum you can use with children from as young as three years old to help them to develop functional scissors skills. The programme is divided into four stages, which progress sequentially. Children can start at which ever stage they are ready for. Each stage includes relevant worksheets which build on the previous stage. There are also activities for children at pre-scissor skills stage to help prepare them for holding scissors.

In addition, there's 1 hour of education material teaching you about the background of postural control and grasp development which are essential for scissor skill success.
