Personal routines and self-care

Children between the ages of 3-6 years may have some difficulty managing self-care activities independently

Self-care skills of 3-6-year-old children include sleeping, toileting, bathing, moving between positions, dressing, eating and drinking.

Increased independence in self-care tasks means children require less assistance from their parent or carer. With some extra practice and appropriate therapy support your child can make gains towards their self-care goals.
