A bit "off-topic", but it is germane to the overall theme: Developing "fine motor skills" for the child!
Will keyboard usage (depending upon the type of keyboard) do an equally effective job of helping develop motor skills?
I agree that keyboarding is indeed faster than printing and even faster than writing in a cursive style. But what will be gained by doing things faster, if it debilitates a person earlier in their lifecycle?
