Gross motor skills are defined as abilities to do tasks that involve the large muscles in our torso, legs, and arms. Gross motor skills involved whole-body movements. For most, these skills are natural and automatic but gross motor skills are complex. They rely on the muscles and neurological system working in harmony. They influence balance, coordination and form the basis for fine motor skills (used to make small movements.) Gross motor skills are related to other essential abilities like balance, coordination, body awareness, physical strength and reaction time.
Poor gross motor skills seep into every aspect of an individual’s life. Completing key tasks at school, work, and home is a challenge.
