Mason has age appropriate gross motor skills but a mild fine motor delay. By age 3-6 a child should be developing the ability to pick up small objects with tip and palmar prehension. Mason should be using his fingertips to pick up small objects and should be managing his own clothing with supervision when toileting. He should be able to build a 9-block tower. Mason demonstrates skills that are typical for a 2-3- year-old child, so his fine motor delays are mild.
