Did you know that a child’s sense of balance is not just about preventing stumbles and falls? It’s a fundamental skill that can pave the way for their physical, emotional, and cognitive development.
When it comes to physical development, balance is a crucial skill that opens doors to a world of possibilities.
The decision to venture into franchising provides access to a well-established framework, comprehensive training, and ongoing support. However, the extent of success within this industry is sculpted by the individual franchise proprietor.
Imagine a world where your child’s physical and mental faculties harmoniously interact like a well-choreographed dance. That’s the magic of balance at play.
We’ve been on an amazing journey exploring the world of proprioception – the sense that guides our kids’ movements and coordination. But wait, what’s next for your little one’s development? In this blog we’re diving into some super fun stuff that will take their proprioception skills to new heights.
Get ready to dive into a world of exciting possibilities as we explore the art of incorporating proprioceptive activities into your child’s daily routines. We all know that childhood development is a fascinating journey, and proprioception plays a significant role in it.
Proprioception, the body’s internal GPS, is like an invisible map that tells your child where their body parts are without them even needing to look. This incredible sense allows them to walk, run, and play with grace and coordination.
As parents, we all want the best for our little bundles of joy. From their first giggle to their first steps, we cheer them on every step of the way. So, let’s dive into the amazing world of bilateral integration and learn some proven strategies to boost your toddler or baby’s development!
Did you know that your child possesses an extraordinary talent for synchronising both sides of their body? This incredible skill, known as bilateral integration, plays a vital role in their early development.
Get ready for some exciting and engaging activities that will not only keep your kids entertained but will also help them develop bilateral integration skills and improve their coordination!
Whether it’s your children’s first attempt to crawl, their triumphant first steps, or the playful use of both hands during playtime, bilateral integration stands at the core of your child’s developmental journey.
Every child has their own unique way of viewing and interacting with the world. This includes individualised responses to sensory information, especially when it comes to their sense of balance. Daily household activities provide vestibular, balance, or movement input, to help children organise their nervous system and feel empowered along the way.
When it comes to balance, we know it’s a game-changer for our children. On the flip side, however, kids with a poor sense of balance may either need to move constantly to feel satisfied, or they may be fearful of movement because it makes them feel insecure and unbalanced.
Most children develop a strong sense of balance simply through engaging in everyday play activities that allow for exploration and movement.
The development of balance happens in a place called the vestibular system. Think of this system as your child’s very own GPS, it keeps them balanced and in tune as they move, learn, and grow. It ensures that your kids can spin, swing, and slide without turning into dizzy little tornados.
Encouraging children to be physically active has always been a daunting task if they decide to dig their heels in, cross their arms and refuse to take part. But what new challenges does this strange new world pose? How can you manage them and how can you ensure that they remain active without the need for constant encouragement?
We estimate that Colic affects 15 to 25 percent of families. I use the word families on purpose here because the effects of colic are not just limited to the baby; everybody in that household (be it mom, dad, or siblings) are, to some degree affected by the change in the family dynamic when an inconsolable baby is dropped into the mix.
Everyone knows how important a diverse set of experiences that stimulates all five of our senses is for development. We encourage children to touch, taste, listen, look, and smell all of the things in our environment. These tactile senses are critical to our development allow us to explore and make sense of the world. But have you ever thought about your other senses?
The ones that help you move, keep you upright and let you know where your limbs are? In this blog we explore the proprioceptive system that makes it possible for us to be aware of our own movements and to perceive the location of our body parts in space without a visual reference to them.
