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.
