In order for a child to engage successfully in the classroom, on the playground or in sporting activities they need to have a strong, stable body. Good postural control is also important for supporting fine motor skill development.

A child needs to have strong back and tummy muscles, be able to coordinate movement patterns, use the 2 sides of their body together, have stable shoulders and be able to grade and control movement in a fluid, rhythmical way.

The Gross Motor Home Programme, which is included in the kit is a weekly programme that covers postural strengthening using 3 different approaches; postural control activities, a therapy ball programme and an alphabet based gross motor activity game.

The kit contains a 20cm ball, a 45cm therapy ball, 5 bean bags, skittles, masking tape and outdoor chalk.

This is no ordinary kit, as along with the resources, you will receive a link to video demonstrations explaining the correct use and purpose of the main exercises and activities in the kit.

These exercises are performed under the instruction of a Paediatric Occupational Therapist.

A list of other recommended gross motor activities is also provided.
