Dexterity is the skill in performing tasks, especially when using the fingers and hands.

Dexterity is the foundation for many fine motor skills. It takes good dexterity to use utensils to eat or button a shirt! If your child struggles with skills like handwriting or dressing, reach out to MKP for an OT Consult!
