Preschoolers need opportunities to exercise.
To learn to control and coordinate the large muscles in his arms and legs, your child needs to throw and catch balls, run, jump, climb and dance to music.
To learn to control and coordinate the small muscles in his hands and fingers, he needs to color with crayons, put together puzzles, use blunt-tipped-safety-scissors, zip his jacket and grasp small objects such as coins.
If you suspect that your child has a disability, see a doctor as soon as possible.
Early intervention can help your child to develop to his full potential.
