  • Physical development - types
    • Gross motor development - the skills acquired to control and coordinate large muscles - legs, arms and torso
    • Fine motor development - the skills acquired to control and coordinate small muscles - hands, fingers and toes
    • In later adulthood your joints become stiffer and your muscles weaker causing you to less mobile and losing the fine motor control you had in childhood
    • Development starts from head down, they gain head control before back and leg muscles
    • Control starts from the body and moves out to the limbs, toes and fingers. infants can control movements in their arm to reach out before their fingers to hold an object
    • All infants go through the same thing but at different times/ages e.g. some may be walking at 11 months, others might not walk until they're 14 months
