There is now a vast amount of scientific research that shows that increased stimulation generally results in improved neurological function which controls motor skills. There is equally compelling evidence to show that if a young child is placed in a deprived environment and left there for an extended period of time, it is almost certain that its physical development, growth and brain function will be adversely affected.
A young child needs to be placed in an environment where its senses are going to be appropriately stimulated, and where there is space and opportunity to practice and repeat its gradually developing motor skills.
By ensuring that children are exposed to a rich sensory environment, parents and coaches will be directly influencing the motor skill & brain development of their children.
The variety and richness of stimulating environments children are exposed to and genetics determine exactly what level of motor skill development a...
