Eye-Hand Coordination


Eye-hand coordination is also referred to as visual motor integration. Essentially, it is using your eyes to guide the movement of your hands. So whether it's swinging a baseball bat at a zooming ball or maneuvering your pencil through a narrow maze, you are using your eyes to help coordinate the movement in your hands and arms. Children that have difficulty with eye-hand coordination may have trouble copying pictures and words, working their way through dot-to-dots or mazes, or catching a ball. This category actually covers a vast majority of things that we do everyday! Since so many activities involve both your hands and your eyes, children that have difficulty in this area will show difficulties with a number of common skills.
