why do this?

  • The Dressing Frames are presented to a child early on, since there are simple ones available, such as velcro or snaps. The primary purpose is to teach children how to dress themselves through mastering different clothing fasteners

  • The frames exercise fine motor skills, teach concentration, perseverance and self care

  •  A presentation can be quick, but this material encourages lots of repetition, since there are multiple fasteners down the frame, and children often practice more than once
