Core strength is essential for all developmental skills. A weak core can render everyday tasks difficult for children, including sitting on a chair, holding a pencil, tying shoes, and playing in the playground.

  • Resting arms on a table and holding the head up with hands

  • Difficulty sitting still and frequently shifting position

  • “W-sitting”
