This title offers practical advice for parents on the interaction among their child's muscular, mental, and motor development. Why Motor Skills Matter provides not only knowledge but a game plan as to how parents can help their little ones develop optimal potential via play, stimulation, and establishment of an appropriate environment. - Ruth A. Peters, Ph.D., and bestselling author of Laying Down the Law. According to pediatric physical therapist Tara Losquadro Liddle, playful interaction beginning in infancy is crucial to a child's learning abilities, language, speech, and overall emotional balance. Filled with practical, age-appropriate activities for newborns up to five years old, Why Motor Skills Matter shows parents how to: integrate touch, movement, and body awareness during playtime; bolster motor skills; develop appropriate play for each age level; and understand their child's development. Why Motor Skills Matter explains the impact motor skills have on the neurodevelopment of a child, helping parents participate more fully in their child's development.
