We train fingers and develop speech in the child
The connection between the speech function and the precise movements of the fingers was recorded by researchers as far back as the 18th century. Illuminator of the time NI Novikov proposed for the mental development of a child to encourage him to perform actions on things. The famous psychoneurologist V.M. Bekhterev directly pointed to the connection between the movements of the hand and the development of speech.
The influence of finger development on the speech abilities of children
The development of fine movements of the hand and fingers is a kind of test for speech development. The more developed the child’s fine motor skills, the closer his speech development to the age norm. And, on the contrary, if the hand and fingers are not developed enough, consequently, the development of the child has a low level of development.
The problem of total speech underdevelopment of modern children, discrepancy of speech with age standards worries their parents, teachers, speech therapists. It is possible that there is a general underdevelopment of fine motor skills here.

- Rare walks, during which you can not play with sand and stones.
- Gradual rejection of domestic needlework.

- Replacement of productive activities (drawing, modeling, modeling, applique) by watching TV and computer games
led to the fact that the fine motor skills of children’s hands, and with it the speech, develop worse than we would like.
