Fun Strokes is your go-to site for information, inspiration, and resources that have been thoughtfully created to equip children with the tools they need to be successful in school and in life. Fun Strokes was developed by me, a pediatric occupational therapist, to facilitate understanding and insight into the very complex area of fine motor skill development. Fun Strokes is for therapists, teachers, parents, and anyone who has a passion for helping children.
