Good ideas for building core strength/trunk rotation/bilateral coordination [I personally love the idea of rowing a scooter board w/ a plunger. There are more ideas at the site. Would even work in a school where treating in the hallway is required]
Kids need to have a strong foundation of strength in the center of their bodies. Core strength fosters all kinds of developmental skills from bilateral coordination, posture, and stability to balance and endurance. Scroll down for great core exercises!
Strengthen little hands and arms by using a potato smasher! This is just 1 of the 25 occupational therapist-approved fine motor activities you can do with your child, using items from around your house!
More and more kids are having difficulty with maintaining functional posture at home and in the classroom, and that decreased core strength commonly contributes to other issues like W-Sitting and delayed motor skill development.
