Hands on Learning at it's best!
WHAT IS FINE MOTOR DELAY?
Fine motor delay is when a child is not able to use their hands and fingers to hold, manipulate, and use objects when the child is at the right age to do these things. Fine motor skills require eye-hand coordination — the ability to see something and respond with the right movements in the hands and fingers.
Our goal at Dayna Slays is to create fine motor products that help with fine motor development.
We understand how important it is to use our hands and fingers for everyday functioning. Many task can be difficult if there is low muscle tone in your fine motor abilities. Hands and fingers require strength to perform certain task.
We are set out to provide fine motor tools that assist with daily self-care skills, some such as dressing, shoe lacing and zipping. In additional to other functions such as writing with instruments, object gripping with a combination of muscle strengthening activities.
Our goal is to innovate and spread empowerment throughout the universe and to help rehabilitate fine motor skills during growth and development.
"We are passionate and dedicated
to help others in building the self-confidence
needed for everyday functioning."
Dayna Slays has been working on helping children and adults by promoting fine motor support by providing the self-care practices and muscle strengthening tools and additional handwriting support. Help us get Dayna Slays into schools, rehabs, hospitals, daycare centers, Physical and Occupational therapy offices, adult daycare or where ever there is a need for it. It will even be a great tool for your home!

What are your pains and frustrations ?
Children begin to learn to tie their shoelaces between the ages of 5-7. Shoe tying is an important self care skill. It can be challenging for children and it takes alot of practice and motivation. Some children may have motor or learning difficulties which may interfere with the ability to learn these skills. Theses difficulties may also put a dent in the steps required leading to some fustrations of completing too many steps and too any versions. Some children may require OT services. Children become independent and have to learn self- care skills.
Dayna Slays hosted its' first annual giveback event "Poinsettias for Elders" in December of 2021. Our young "Dayna Slays" ambassadors delivered poinsettias to two senior homes in Boston MA to elderly residents in the community as a way to spread peace, love, joy and kindness. It was also a motivating way for the girls to experience the gift of giving and they slayed it!!
