Physical Therapy: Appropriate Gross Motor Skills

Check out this great visual of appropriate gross motor skills per age-group. If your child is behind in attaining any of these skills, or you recognize any of the “red flags” as concerns of your own, it’s a good idea to consult with your Pediatrician for a referral to a Pediatric Physical Therapist. In Pediatric Physical Therapy, we help children attain their utmost motor potential through therapeutic play activities. Physical Therapy will provide your child the tools to be more successful in movement whether it’s rolling, running, or beyond. Refer to this visual as your little one ages to ensure appropriate development through all stages of childhood.
