Topics in Down syndrome - Gross Motor Skills in Children with Down syndrome - A Guide for Parents and Professionals

This book provides parents and professionals with essential information about motor development including the impact of temperament and the effect of physical and medical conditions associated with Down syndrome.

Children with Down Syndrome master gross motor skills everything from rolling over to running but need additional help and encouragement to maximize development. In Gross Motor Skills in Children with Down Syndrome, the author, a physical therapist, shares her expertise and experience gained from sixteen years specializing in the motor development of children with Down syndrome. This book provides parents and professionals with essential information about motor development including the impact of temperament and the effect of physical and medical conditions associated with Down syndrome. Over 100 activities and accompanying photos make it easy to practice motor skills with infants and children through age six. Lists of motor milestones included at the end of each chapter and in the appendix are useful in tracking a child's progress and determining what to work on next.

NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
