Core Stability for Babies
Babies are not born with core stability so how does it develop?
Unfortunately babies with motor and sensory challenges encounter difficulty with the development of central stability.
And finally, did you know there is a connection between core stability and emotional regulation?
Excellent point about core stability, breath holding and emotional regulation. Your point of view always reinforces how large of a role physical therapists can play in helping children reaching educational goals.
In addition, I would add that a lack of core stability effects emotional regulation because a child has to focus many of his/her efforts to maintain an upright posture and alert state. At some point during the day the child becomes exhausted and can not longer manage it all and regulation skills are effected.
Always enjoy reading your blog. I liked the twist with the videos this time.
Thanks so much for your insight Margaret!
