Your Child’s Motor Development Story: Understanding and Enhancing Development from Birth to their First Sport

An informative, practical book for parents and educators that explains the mystery of motor development in the young child. The author uses case studies from her experience as an occupational therapist to show that improving a child’s motor skills can enhance their emotional well-being. She explains the progression of skills in an easy to understand format and supplies a list of recommended activities following the description of each skill. Skills range from the early reflexes in the infant to crawling, standing and walking. For the older child, coordinated movements are discussed that are required for throwing, swinging, swimming, writing and riding a bike.
