In parent-friendly language, the author explains the many physiological reasons that children with Down syndrome experience delays in their gross motor development and presents a physical therapy treatment plan for birth to age 6. Over 400 photos accompany step-by-step instructions to help readers assess a child's gross motor readiness and teach skills for head control, sitting, crawling, standing, walking, using stairs, running, kicking, jumping, and riding a tricycle.
With additional activities, many new photos, advice on transitioning from trikes to bikes, tips to address problems such as flat feet, and tendencies to watch for that can thwart development. Patricia Winders specializes in the gross motor development of children with Down syndrome. She works at the Sie Center for Down Syndrome at Children's Hospital Colorado in Aurora, Colorado. She speaks about gross motor skills nationally and locally and serves on the professional advisory committee of the National Down Syndrome Congress.
