Children s hand skills when performing in real-life contexts have been commonly thought as a possible determinant of their self-care function; however, there is a paucity of research investigating this potential predictive relationship. The purpose of this study was to provide evidence regarding whether children s real-life hand skill performance is contributive to or predictive of their self-care function by considering other child and cultural factors.
