Item Description...
THE guide to understanding fine motor development in children with Down syndrome and helping them develop daily living skills from birth through early adolescence is newly revised and updated. The author, an occupational therapist who has worked extensively with children with Down syndrome, is also the parent of a teenager with Down syndrome. She offers parents and professionals dozens of easy, home-and school-based activities, illustrated with b&w photos, which help children gradually acquire the skills they need for fine motor development. Readers learn how to incorporate activities into everyday activities and routines and to emphasize tasks that children can use throughout life -- play, self-help, printing, cutting with scissors, and computer use. New to this edition is a chapter on sensory processing, preprinting activities, and how to introduce related concepts (up & down; top & bottom), as well as more info on ways to help kids learn self-help skills.

From The Book Jacket
An experienced occupational therapist explains the best practices and procedures for helping children with Down syndrome master daily living skills for home, school, and an independent future.

Great Practical Strategies from a Special Day Class Teacher  Oct 27, 2007
I would recommend buying this book since it includes many practical strategies with working with children with low cognitive functioning. We, as teachers, need practical ideas based by "best practice" research that we can implement immediately after reading a book. This is a book by a seasoned special education teacher and I recommend it highly.
Great book!  Apr 12, 2007
This is a great book for anyone working with or parenting children with down syndrome (and fascinating for anyone with children). It covers development based on stages rather than ages, so the focus can be on the child and not on a outwardly determined norm for development.
Great Helps!  Jan 9, 2007
This book offers so much help for parents, grandparents, teachers, anyone working with children who have down Syndrome. It gives so much help, ideas, insights... well, the list just goes on.
Recommended for all teachers, parents, guardians, grandparents, caregivers and counselors for children with Down Syndrome  Jun 4, 2006
The substantially revised and updated second edition of Fine Motor Skills For Children With Down Syndrome: A Guide For Parents And Professionals by pediatric occupational therapist Maryanne Bruni offers a thoroughly "user friendly" study detailing particular tactics and effective strategies for training the motor skills of children with Down Syndrome. Introducing readers to invaluable tips on determining when a child is ready for preprinting and printing activities, strategies for encouraging self-help skills for independent living, research on how children with Down Syndrome learn, expanded suggestions for useful toys, activities, equipment, and grandparent lists, useful information for computer use, and more, Fine Motor Skills For Children With Down Syndrome enables a thorough grasp of greatly helpful and very practical information for a more educated approach to aiding children with Down syndrome. For its concise and essential comprehension of dire information, Fine Motor Skills For Children With Down Syndrome is very strongly recommended for all teachers, parents, guardians, grandparents, caregivers and counselors for children with Down Syndrome.
Must have reference for pediatric occupational therapist  Feb 29, 2000
Maryanne Bruni has taken the best of both worlds of knowledge-therapist and parent of Down syndrome child--and combined them when she wrote this terrific guide. Listing developmental sequences step by step for scissors and handwriting skills helps me explain to parents what to work on at home and what to expect next. This guide should be in every pediatric facility and early childhood program's library. It covers all the practical hands-on treatment ideas that get glossed over in OT school. Thanks, Maryanne.
