The OT Toolbox: Ultimate Guide to Teaching Kids to Get Dressed

Ultimate Guide to Teaching Kids to Get Dressed

Kids grow up fast.  They are snugly newborns one day and before you know it, they are heading off to preschool (I don't want to think about those older years!).  Those first few years of childhood are loaded with learning and growth. One area of independence is when kids learn to dress themselves.  Many parents have questions about when kids learn to get dressed on their own, how to help their child in this area of self-care, and what might be stopping their child when there are difficulties.  

Read all of our Functional Skills and tips for creating childhood independence here.

This month's post in the Functional Skills for Kids series is all about teaching kids to get dressed on their own.  If you've been following along with this series, you know that each month ten Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists are joining together to cover functional skills of childhood.  You can catch up on all of the posts in this series here.
