Motor Development

Normal Motor Development

Most infants and children reach motor milestones at the expected time. Remember that there is a normal variance in when a child masters a motor skill. There are many resources available to help you determine if your child’s development is on track. This is just one example: http://www.babycenter.com/0_milestone-chart-1-to-6-months_1496585.bc

 

Delayed Motor Development

A physical therapist can assess your child’s motor development and can recommend a treatment plan if your child’s development is delayed, or we can make a referral for additional services. Children ages 0-36 months with significant motor delays can be referred to the Early Intervention Program in your county. Treating delayed motor development is a team effort between your family and the physical therapist. Let our pediatric therapists help you enhance your child’s development with suggestions for activities and exercises tailored to your child’s needs.

Call (585) 427-7610 to schedule an assessment.

Balance and Coordination

Some older children may have difficulty with balance and coordination, making it difficult for them to keep up with their peers during play and sports. Balance and coordination training can be very effective, and results can be seen quickly after a period of training. The physical therapist can train a child one-on-one or in a small group.
