Gross motor skills

Help your child learn to use the large muscles in their arms, legs, stomach, and back.


As your child grows and develops, they begin to use their large muscles for skills like rolling, sitting, moving, playing, and walking. When they develop these skills, they're also working on coordination and balance.

Pediatric rehabilitation can help if your child is having challenges in these areas of development.
