There are a lot of parents, teachers, and therapists out there who know that core strengthening is essential for the progression of all other developmental skills. The core is the center of control for everything else the body does! It's difficult to balance, perform coordinated movements on both sides of the body, sit up straight in a chair, hold a pencil, control scissors, or jump if you don't have a strong core.
We know that decreased core strength commonly contributes to other issues like W-Sitting and delayed motor skill development. This website shares a variety of core strength exercises that can support students' development.
