In brief: Standardized tests

for assessment of fine motor skills exist for all age groups.
Occupational therapists assess the developmental level of skills & the quality of movement. The Peabody Developmental Motor Scales 2, birth-5 defines degree of impairment in kids with neurological abnormalities or risk factors for fine-motor delays. http://www.guideline.gov/content.aspx?id=47480 lists efficacy of various therapies.

In brief: Fine motor skills

It is important to emphasize that one size does not fit all when designing a therapeutic intervention for children with motor skills disorder. It is also important to understand that although many interventions are offered, very few have been rigorously tested and proven to be effective.

Federally-funded Early Intervention Services, birth-3, require a written Individualized Family Services Plan, just like public schools, 3-5 & 6-18, have to write an Individualized Educational Plan with parent input. Community-based OTR's also individualize treatment based on assessment results. Please review my reference to a governmental meta-analysis of efficacy of various treatment approaches.
