Gross Motor Development
Learn more about how to support your little one’s gross motor skill development.
Motor development begins as newborns, and there are a number of skills babies develop in their first 18months - from tummy time and head control, to transitional movements such as rolling, sitting, crawling, and walking. Babies develop their gross motor skills at different rates. Therefore, knowing what time frames for development are typical can help you help your little one develop these skills, and know when to seek extra advice or reassurance.
We collaborate with Paediatric Physiotherapists to bring you one hour Gross Motor Development workshops exploring milestones including tummy time, rolling, crawling, and walking, and providing guidance on how to support your baby’s development and common orthopaedic conditions to be aware of.
We will talk about
Gross motor developmental milestones and the sequence of development
Common infant orthopaedic conditions including plagiocephaly, torticollis, hip dysplasia, and talipes; how to spot these, tips for management, and when to seek help
Common causes for delay in development
Tips and tricks on how to help support your babies development
Ideas for setting up a supportive environment at home for baby to explore and thrive in
Time for discussion and Q&A
