Poor hand control : When a child has "fine motor delay", that generally means that he or she has problems with hand coordination compared to what we would expect for children at that age.

Fine motor: Fine motor delay means that the skills using the small muscles (like the hands) develop later than most children, or develop differently. Children with fine motors delays often have trouble with using utensils, buttons and shoe ties, handwriting, or using scissors.
