Toddler Gross Motor Skill Development
Throughout a toddler’s life, they will walk, run, go up and down stairs, jump, balance, learn ball skills, and gain strength. It’s an exciting time to see skills advancing and new skills emerging. However, these skills can sometimes be challenging for toddlers, and they may need some help developing these gross motor skills. All toddlers develop at their own pace, although there are typical timelines when specific skills develop and should be mastered. Our physiotherapists are here to help you and your child if you feel your toddler is falling behind or may be frustrated with learning a particular skill.
Butterfly’s physiotherapists are experienced at assessing and treating delays or difficulties with several gross motor skills that may include walking sideways or backwards, walking up or down stairs, running, skipping or hopping, jumping forward, sideways, or over obstacles, throwing, kicking, catching, or bouncing a ball.
