Physical Therapy -> Praxis -> Coordination


Being able to integrate multiple movements into one efficient movement. When you stand from a chair, you have to put your feet on the floor, lean forward, push with your legs, then straighten your back. Multiple movements happen quickly to become one big movement. Some kids have difficulty coordinating all the smaller movements into one big one. PT can help break down bigger tasks into smaller tasks to improve coordination.
