Why do kids need Perceptual-Motor experiences?
What is Perceptual-Motor skills:
Sensory information to be successfully obtained and understood with appropriate output.
Perceptual refers obtaining information
And Motor refer to the outcome of movement.
Thus perceptual-motor activities require children to use their brain and body together to accomplish tasks- for example, walking over obstacle course while reciting the alphabet.
kids who possess adequate perceptual- motor skills enjoy better coordination greater body awareness, stronger intellectual skills, and a more positive self-image.
Kids who lack these skills often struggle with coordination, possess poor body awareness, and feel less confident
Perceptual-motor development is critical to children’s development of brain pathways that cross the right and left hemispheres.
When to seek help?
Poor perceptual- motor development often experience difficulty in learning to read and write when they are in the primary grades.
Until then, Bye!
