Gross motor skills are a cornerstone for all types of daily functions, and although children meet milestones differently, it's our job to provide them with tools and instructions to help them reach their true potential. Without a fair chance at developing gross motor skills today, your child is bound to struggle with many day to day tasks later in life. This selection of products is geared toward helping children develop the gross motor skills they need to perform everyday functions. Gross motor skills require the whole body, and include important milestones such as crawling, walking, going up and down stairs, throwing and catching, riding a bike, jumping, kicking and climbing.
Children with developmental delays, disabilities or sensory processing issues typically see delays in gross motor skills because they may experience problems with coordination, balance, motor planning or concentration. Additionally, a protected or sendentary lifestyle can contribute negatively to developmental delays because these fail to challenge kids physically.
Knowing when to challenge kids and when to back off can be a fine line. In order to grow to reach their full potential, it's important to nourish your child's sense of self-worth and trust. If your child has special needs and you struggle with knowing when to push and when to nurture, check out this article.
