Abstract
 
Description
This book presents an overview of what is understood about development of motor skills in people with Down syndrome. Reviewing the available research, effective activities for promoting the development of motor skills are discussed. This book provides a review of research into the development of motor skills in individuals with Down syndrome. This research is limited but the book discusses what is known about the factors influencing progress and some milestones for attaining gross motor skills (for example, sitting, walking, running) and fine motor skills (for example, using cutlery, managing fastenings, drawing and writing). The book identifies the principles that should guide the development of activities to improve motor skills, based on the evidence currently available and the specific learning profile of children with Down syndrome. "Down Syndrome Issues and Information" is a major series of practical and informative books covering the full range of developmental, health and social issues relating to individuals with Down syndrome. The books have been written by many of the world's leading experts and are based on years of research and hands-on experience. - from Amzon
