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?

Until then, Bye!
