Occupational Therapy -> Fine Motor Skills -> Scissor Skills

Scissor Skills

Scissors skills require vision and fine motor skills to be used in coordination. Occupational therapists address an individual's ability to place the scissors into the hand accurately, manipulate the scissors (open and close), line up the scissors with the paper/line/etc., and hold/manipulate the paper or object with the opposing hand while cutting.
