What is a Worksheet for Down Syndrome Students?

Down syndrome is a genetic condition produced by an additional whole or partial copy of chromosome 21 due to faulty cell division. Down syndrome is characterized by developmental alterations and physical characteristics caused by excess genetic material. These kids face a lot of issues in school like hearing and vision weakness, fine motor skill impairment due to low muscle tone, weak auditory memory, short attention span and distractibility, and sequencing difficulties. This worksheet will enable them to improve their fine motor skills by cutting with scissors. 

How will a Worksheet for Down Syndrome Students help?

Cutting drawings with scissors will help children with down syndrome strengthen their fine motor skills. Cutting with scissors is an essential fine motor activity because it improves the fingers that handle the pencil and helps develop strength on the ulnar side of the hand. Other fine motor skills, such as handwriting, can benefit from this.

Instructions on how to use a Worksheet for Down Syndrome Students

Guide the child to start cutting each item where there is a scissor sign and stop where the dotted line finishes.
