I can Cut!
Cutting involves a lot more than just picking up a pair of scissors and learning how to hold them or open and close them.
- Your child needs to be able to sit up appropriately and have good balance and stability.
- Being able to isolate the thumb and the fingers in order to grasp and release the scissors.
- Bilateral coordination, or using both sides of the body together is crucial to cutting.
- Using both hands together means the dominate hand opens and closes the scissors while the non-dominate hand or “helping hand” hold the paper and rotates it as needed.
This book teaches the 8 steps to teach your child how to cut.
