Balance and Coordination:
Key Ingredients in Motor Control
Does your child have difficulty keeping up with peers during play or sports activities?

It can be very difficult to always be the last one picked for a team or to be the slowest person on the team.  It affects a child’s self esteem.

Did you know that a period of intensive coordination and balance training can dramatically improve your child’s skills?

Research has shown that the motor maps in the brain that control movement and movement quality can change and improve with the right kind of training. The training must have a high degree of specificity and repetition, as well as engagement. This new knowledge has opened doors for improvements in function that were not even know to be there a few years ago.

At PPTS, we offer one-on-one or small group sessions for intensive balance and coordination training.
