Motor skills are an essential component of every task we ask our learners to do. Common tasks like holding a pencil, washing hands, stocking shelves, completing a puzzle, playing hopscotch, or simply turning to face a friend at the lunch table all require sophisticated sequences of movements. A thorough Component Composite Analysis is required to successfully teach these typical activities. This webinar will cover the individual motor skills necessary to complete common daily activities and how to develop a program for implementation in the school, clinic, and home settings. Emphasis will be placed on the systematic instruction of joint range of motion, coordinated flexibility, and fine motor activities. Collaboration with allied professionals, specifically occupational therapists, will be discussed. The webinar will include useful team worksheets for brainstorming foundation skills across common tasks. Participants will come away with strategies to guide teaching and enable learners to better affect their world through coordinated motor movement.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to identify whether a skill is a tool skill, a component skill, or a composite motor skill
  • Participants will be able to select the definitions of terms related to motor planning and instructional design.
  • Participants will identify 3 areas within the motor skills instructional framework for interdisciplinary collaboration.
  • Participants will identify motor scope components of program for an activity of daily living.
