Providing enough sensory integration activites is important at the Early Childhood development. A person with Sensory Processing Disorder finds it difficult to process and act upon information received through tthe senses, which creaes challenges in performing countless everyday tasks. Motor clumsiness, behavioral problems, anxiety, depression, school failure, and otehr impacts may result if the disorder is not treated effectively.
Gross Motor Skills
Gross Motor development involves the larger, stronger muscle groups of the body. Gross motor skills are larger movements your baby makes with his arms, legs, feet, or his entire body. Gross motor activities help your child to really "feel" their muscles and joints. Jumping, running, crawling, sliding, climbing and riding gives good proprioceptive input.
Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor movements involve the coordination of small muscles in the hands and fingers. Strong fine motor skills are essential to complete tasks such as writiing, cutting, using a fork or spoon, threading beads, moving puzzle pieces, zipping, buttoning, and tying shoe laces. Without well-developed fine motor skills, a child may have difficulty learning to write or performing many of the other critical tasks presented in the preschool and kindergarten classrooms.
Coordination & Balance
Balance and coordination skills help toddlers interact with the world around them and perform more complex physical activities. Running, jumping, kicking, throwing, drawing pictures or constructing block towers are all examples of activities that develop a toddler\'s balance and coordination. Balace and coordination skills develop over time as children play and experiment with their worlds, so it\'s important to provide a safe, supportive environment as your toddler learns to develop these skills.
Social Skills Training
All children need to learn appropriate social skills. Social skills are behaviors that promote positive interaction with others and the environment.
Through the use of modeling, role-play, reinforcement and other specially designed techniques a child can learn to make and keep frinds, deal with bullies, manage anger, and lead a satisfying life.
Creative power increases a young child's desire to learn and supports intellectual development. Creativity fuels the ability to problem-solve, innovate, and explore new and unfamiliar areas. It is the hallmark of ingenuity, which leads to successes in the world of art, science, and technology. Children who are encouraged to think creatively exhibit higher self-esteem and motivation.
Self-confidence is an essential ingredient for all aspects of the child\'s healthy development and a key ingredient for school success. Confidence is a belief in your ability to master your body, behavior, and the challenges you encounter in the world. Children who are confident are eager to learn new skills and face new challenges.
Sharing & Cooperation
Sharing is not an innae ability that occurs along the developemental pathway. Instead, it is a skill that needs be learned verbally, through observation, and from experience. Reinforcing the importance of sharing throughout childhood fosters cooperation, a sense of social responsibility and responsibility to others, the ability to engage in teamwork, empathy, kindness, and social skills, among other attributes.
