Gross motor skills involve the movement and control of large muscles in the body. The strength and control of these muscles affect balance, walking, jumping and general coordination.
Children with gross motor difficulties may demonstrate:
- poor body awareness, clumsiness, bump and trip frequently
- difficulty jumping, hopping and riding a bike
- difficulty participating in physical forms of recreation
- avoidance of gross motor activities/ preference for sedentary activities
- delay in developing motor milestones, e.g. walking’
