Personalized Care for Your Child
Gross motor skills involve use of the large muscles of the body to perform whole-body movements in a coordinated manner. Execution of coordinated gross motor movements frequently requires stabilization of the trunk through strong core and postural muscles.
Gross motor skills are involved in functional skills such as maintaining upright posture while seated at a desk, sustaining endurance throughout a school day, and performing self-care tasks independently. Additionally, gross motor skills are involved in total body movements such as jumping jacks, walking across a balance beam, and catching a ball.
Fine motor skills involve use of the smaller muscles of the wrist, hand, and fingers to make precise, refined movements. They are a prerequisite for many self-care, academic, and functional play skills.
Visual Motor & Writing
Visual motor skills involve the integration of visual information with motor output in order to use the hands and the eyes in a coordinated manner. They are are a foundational skill for many functional activities.
Sensory processing involves registering, organizing, and integrating information perceived from our body and environment. It makes it possible for us to interact with and understand our environment.
Self-Care & Daily Living
Self-care and daily living skills involve the ability to care for one’s own needs. They are important because they enable a child to achieve maximal independence and success in their everyday life.
Visual perceptual skills enable us to interpret what our eyes are seeing. Strong visual perceptual skills are crucial for success with academic tasks, activities of daily living, and building peer relationships.
