Occupational Therapy -> Gross Motor Skills -> Crossing Midline

Crossing Midline

Crossing midline refers to moving an arm or leg across the middle of the body. Crossing midline is used in the following examples: reaching with the dominant hand to the opposite side to pick up and object, writing from left to right across a piece of paper without switching hands, and kicking a ball in the opposite direction of the dominant foot. Crossing midline is an important skill to develop to allow both sides of the brain to work together.
