For many reasons, your child will need to learn how to dress himself. Getting dressed is about more than just putting his clothes on in the morning.It is also about developing skills such as:
Fine motor skills
Learning to fasten buttons and zips will help to develop these skills.
Gross motor skills
Standing on one leg to pull on a pair of pants will also help develop these skills.
Cognitive skills
These skills will be developed as your child remembers which clothes to put on first, his patience grows and he develops the attention span to finish the task.
His language will also develop as he learns the names of different types of clothes, colours and sizes.
Awareness of time and space
Learning to dress for certain occasions and weather conditions will help him to develop a better awareness of time and space.
