> GROSS MOTOR

Gross Motor

Gross motor starts developing right from when we are born. Gross motor relates to all the BIG body movements our body does. These are walking, running, jumping, climbing and crawling. Fine motor relates to smaller movements our body does!  

Some kids have high or low tone (their muscles may be to tight or to floppy) that can impact their gross motor, and some kids just havent had a change to practice their skills!! 

Some more information on Gross Motor Skills is listed below.
