Theraputty is a brightly coloured, non-sticky putty that can be stretched and moulded to support fine motor skills. Each colour coded putty has a different consistency for strengthening muscles of the hand and building fine motor skills.
Most primary school-aged children will require either Soft or Medium strengths and can move one strength up or down depending on their unique requirements.
Theraputty is recommended:
- To support the development of fine motor skills including strength, dexterity and isolation.
- As a fidget tool to support focus and attention
- To support imaginary play skills
- For children 3+ years of age.
Please consult an Occupational Therapist (OT) to guide you on theraputty strength. This will vary based on your child’s hand strength. As a general guide:
XX Soft: 3+ years
X Soft: 4+ years
Soft: 5+ years
Medium: 6+ years
