Since suffering a brain injury as a seven year old, I have suffered from poor manual dexterity. After being discharged from hospital, it was down to my parents and teachers to teach me how to use my hands, eat, wash, dress, write, and similar things. At no point did I see anyone like an occupational therapist or anyone like that. To be honest, the lack of after hospital care was staggering. As such I have grown up with limited manual dexterity and other deficits. This has been a problem for me, particularly since my occupational/professional background is in Electronics, and the limited dexterity issue has caused problems. It has also caused problems in other areas of life. I have always had the view that this was something that could not be fixed. More recently, I have become more aware of neuroscience related issues, and become aware of the fact that fine motor control is a skill that has to be learnt. Children learn it as toddlers, however, post hospital I never had an opportunity to learn these skills again. Entering "manual dexterity" into Google tends to find pages on internet forums that discuss exercises that medical or dental students might use to improve their dexterity. Can anyone suggest anything that might help?
