Gross Motor Skills - The abilities required in order to control the large muscles of the body for running, walking, sitting, crawling and other activities
Movement is at the crux of gross motor development. This basic skill begins very early during infancy. Though we may assume it is a childhood developmental need, the truth is that motor development is beneficial throughout our lives. A multi-sensory environment can encourage gross motor development in a safe, secure, non-competitive environment. The use of interactive flooring, balance beams, tunnels and interactive walls, can help encourage motor skills. Within the confines of a safe, secure yet highly interactive and responsive environment, skills are rewarded and so more easily encouraged and developed.
