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
