Poor co-ordination and balance affect learning and confidence.
Co-ordination difficulties can affect gross motor movements and fine motor movements. This can influence the ability to move accurately, safely and efficiently for everyday actions. Many children with co-ordination issues find self-care difficult so that activities such as dressing or cleaning teeth can cause problems. Other aspects, such as motor planning, balance, proprioception and hand control are also often involved. Children avoid placing themselves in situations where they are challenged for fear of failure and this restricts their experiences.
Your child can be helped through infant reflex integration using the Brainchild Developmental Program.
