These activities gives parents an idea of some of the Attention Autism activities that we do to develop children's attention skills. By using visual and highly motivating activities, children are encouraged to sit at a slight distance, make eye contact with the objects used and pay attention to what they do or what happens.

Fine motor skills are necessary for many aspects of self-care as children, for example: putting on shoes, feeding themselves, cleaning their own teeth. Fine motor skills are also critical for the development of emergent writing.
