Understanding and Encouraging Your Child’s Development of Motor Skills: A Conversation with Dr. Michael Wade
Is your child a late walker or still struggling to find his balance on a bike while his friends ride by? Does your first-grader have trouble printing her name clearly? Or do you worry that your premature baby may never keep up on the sports field? Dr. Michael Wade, professor of Kinesiology in the University of Minnesota’s College of Education and Human Development, brings useful information and words of encouragement to his conversation with Marti & Erin, clarifying how to know if your child’s motor skills warrant assessment or intervention. We are grateful to Minnesota Help Me Grow for their sponsorship of this week’s episode of Mom Enough.
Have you had concerns about the timing or quality of your child’s development of motor skills, such as walking, ball skills, drawing or general coordination? What did you hear in this Mom Enough discussion that was helpful or encouraging?
