The 'Berry' Important Life Skills My Son With Down Syndrome Is Learning

Reading now: 982

This week during my son’s occupational therapy time, the therapist started working on some skills with my son while I started slicing a big box of strawberries.  “When can George start working on cutting with a knife?” I asked.  “Let’s start today!” she suggested.

So, we divided the strawberries between us. This task was not easy for George, who has Down syndrome. His fingers are short and thick and he struggles with fine motor skills.

Slicing strawberries is complex: using a sharp knife, cutting off the stem but not too much of the berry, slicing the fruit into smaller parts, and removing anything mushy or unripe.
