Major Motor Milestones
Terms in this set (16)
physiological flexion, can turn head side to side in prone
lifts head a little more in prone
begin to develop antigravity neck flexors, more weight on hands and through distal forearms; shift COG in prone (decreased physiological flexion)
balance b/w flexors and extensors; beginning of midline control; prone propping on forearms "puppy position"
"critical month" month of controlled symmetry. begin sidelyling play sets for righting and equilibrium responses; stronger balance b/w neck flexors &extensors with emerging lateral head righting
developing extended arm weight bearing in prone; increased abdominal strength; rolls prone to supine!!
sits upright independently; protective extension forward and equilibrium in prone; rolls supine to prone voluntarily
lies prone and pivots or crawls; plays frequently in sidelyling; can sit from quadruped; pulls to stand from quadruped; always moving
likes sitting; creeps on hands and knees; pulls to stand from kneeling to 1/2 kneeling; cruises around furniture; sidestepping. Steppage gait with 2 hands held
intense exploration; frequently side sits; kneels independently; climbs on people and objects; cruises around furniture
tailor sitting to increase use of UE fine motor skills; comes to standing through kneeling; begins walking with 1 hand on furniture
can maintain stable half kneeling and lowers self from standing; stands along with high guard;
has all righting reactions; able to weight shift and lift one leg; goes from standing to sitting with or without external support
walking independently gives up creeping, has protective extension backwards, squats in play
seldom falls in gait, equilibrium reactions in standing, runs stiffly flat footed, walks up stairs with 1 hand held
runs well without falling, walks up stairs alone, kicks large ball, begins heel-toe gait and reciprocal arm swing, enjoys jumping
