What Are Gross Motor Skills?

We rely on these skills to do key tasks in
school, at HOME & in everyday life

Gross motor skills are large body movements like climbing, throwing a ball, or balancing on one foot.

We are using our gross motor skills all throughout the day, but children, in particular, use them a ton when playing with other children, climbing things, throwing balls, or participating in games and sports. Additionally, this is an important way for children to learn about their body in space and how to navigate their environment.

Any activity that involves movement and coordination with the arms, torso, or legs is a gross motor activity.

Learn from two passionate Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants

We are two very passionate Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants who specialize in Sensory Integration and Primitive Reflex Integration.

After over 8 years of working with children in outpatient settings, we realized we wanted to bring our expertise to more families and therapists. With this mission in mind, we started the All Things Sensory Podcast, and have been creating in-depth trainings to help children with sensory challenges and retained primitive reflexes.

Our goal is to empower and educate families, caregivers, therapists, and educators to ultimately create strong, confident children!

So helpful!

My daughter struggles with handwriting for a variety of reasons. This course helped give me not only insight into the fine motor aspect but as well as to the other areas where she could be needing support. I love the calendar of activities so I wasn’t having to come up with this myself!
