W-Sitting Inforgraphic

Our infographic offers an insightful look into "W-sitting," a common posture in children where the knees are bent and feet are positioned outside the hips, forming a 'W' shape. This educational tool explains why some children adopt this sitting style, which can stem from structural hip abnormalities, core weakness, or simply out of habit. It also outlines the potential risks associated with "W-sitting," such as decreased core activation, poor posture, and stress on the joints, which can lead to delayed fine motor development and other developmental concerns.

To counter these risks, the infographic provides practical "W-sitting" solutions and alternative positions that promote healthier sitting habits, like tailor sitting or long sitting, which can help in strengthening core muscles and improving posture. Additionally, the resource includes tips for hip stretching and exercises to enhance core strength, as well as verbal cues to remind children of preferable sitting postures. For parents and educators, this guide is a valuable resource for fostering proper development and preventing the complications associated with W-sitting.

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!
