A five-year-old boy is being seen by his school occupational therapist (OT) to work on fine motor deficits which seem to be delaying his handwriting development. His mother met with the OT and informed her that she is a single parent and is often busy, so her son spends most of his time at home playing on his tablet. The OT is interested in understanding if there is a relationship between the tablet use and the client's fine motor skills.
