Module 9- Chapter 10 Stability (foundation) To maintain desired orientation; equilibrium Cannot walk or reach and grab if you cannot reach equilibrium Equilibrium does not mean no movement. .can have it at static or non static movement Stability and Locomotion Stability enhances mobility and vise verse Locomotion: moving in the environment…getting from here to there. Dynamic task; to do it correct without staggering or falling over… balance is received dynamically Think of dance leaps, catching a ball on the run; you find a stance before doing task…riding a bike Maintaining control of center mass allows one to have functional ability for mobility Stability and manipulation Prehension: use of hands to manipulate objects Think of playing the piano Stability enhances mobility and mobility enhances stability It is important to say that one does not have to gain complete stability before practicing motor task Child using push toy….taking first step is not automatic after standing.

Developmental Change in skills Stats with Head Control Remember Cephalo-Caudal 1 month: no clear motor behavior 2 month: elevates head from prone 2-3 month: L/R head mvt. (prone) 5 month: elevates head on supine Body Control Ability to maintain upright postures frees Hands and arms for reaching and grasping Remember proximo-distal Important milestones of infants From prone position head control emerges Prop sitting – child did not get to this position alone but the arms help keep upright sitting (3 mo.) 4 month: first attempt to roll (to fully roll does not happen until 6-7 supine prone); assisted sitting Independent Roll prone supine Mastered sitting (7-8 mo) Crawling (7-9 mo) Using legs to stand (pull to stand at 9 mo.) Curse around objects while holding on (10 mo.) Standing alone (11 mo) Walking (12 mo) Squat and reach (12mo +)

These are all averages child can deviate a month or two but general picture of motor development Head body control limb control Manipulation Using hands/arms mostly “what do the eyes, arms, and hand segments do?” 3 step process Transport “reach” Home-in (shape hands to the size and orientation of the object) Wine glass vs. beer glass Grasp (grab the object with the correct amount of force) Phase 1 (first week; 4 mo) Simultaneous reach and grasp; no home-in One-handed reaching Visual initiation of reach (saccade: ballistic vision for initiation (jump from one thing to another) Visual control of grasp (child has to see what they are reaching for)
