Below you will find videos and ideas which will support your child's independence, self-care and motor skills.




Cutlery skills



We encourage parents to work with their child to be independent with their toileting by the time they arrive at school. If your child is still finding this aspect of self-care a challenge, I recommend that you speak to their current nursery/pre-school/setting for ideas that might support them, for example with a reward chart. Consistency between the setting and home is key. There are also lots of books available on Amazon to help parents


We, of course, appreciate that some children may have specific sensory needs which mean that toileting is particularly challenging.
