Gross Motor Milestones Infographic

Discover the pivotal stages of your child's gross motor development with our comprehensive milestone chart! Gross motor skills are the cornerstone of your child's ability to interact with the world, involving large muscle movements that are essential for crawling, walking, and eventually running. Our visually engaging chart outlines key developmental landmarks from birth through six years, providing parents with a clear timeline of expected progress. Whether it's mastering the art of crawling by 9 months or skillfully hopping on one foot at age 4, you'll know exactly what to anticipate in your child's journey toward physical agility and coordination.

Encounter a developmental roadblock? Our chart also highlights 'red flags'—vital indicators to watch out for at various ages. If your child is not meeting these milestones or showing signs of struggle, it could be time to seek guidance. That's where our professional team at North Shore Pediatric Therapy comes in. Our experts, including occupational therapists, physical therapists, and other specialized practitioners, are dedicated to nurturing your child's growth. They employ evidence-based techniques to ensure your child not only meets but exceeds their gross motor milestones. With helpful tips on promoting these skills at home, you're empowered to be an integral part of their developmental success.

Why we do what we do.
Success looks different for every child... But we bet we have a story that matches your child's needs. Like James, who started with us as non-verbal and lacking the ability to initiate and maintain social interactions. Today, he can speak complete sentences, clearly state his needs, and navigate social interactions with his friends!
