Gross motor coordination refers to the ability to use the large muscles of the body for major movement functions such as rolling, crawling, walking, balancing and jumping. Mastery of gross motor skills is essential for meeting developmental milestones, supporting sports and academics such as, sitting on the floor and on a chair, navigating the stairs, bicycle riding, dribbling a ball, running, dancing and gymnastics.

"Skilled use of the large muscles in the trunk, arms and legs, such as in dancing, running, jumping, hopping and skipping."

At POTS we use numerous approaches to help children meet gross motor goals, including NDT, Medek and motor learning.
