At Motus Integrative Health, we understand the significance of early childhood development and the profound impact it has on an individual’s lifelong health, well-being, and athletic potential. Our dedicated team provides comprehensive assessments for normal developmental milestones in preschool-aged children, ensuring they are on track to achieving their full potential. Through our expertise and the application of the Long Term Athletic Development Model (LTAD), we specialize in optimizing athleticism from a young age, fostering skills that will serve them throughout their lives.

Understanding Normal Developmental Milestones

The early years of a child’s life are critical for establishing a strong foundation for physical literacy and overall health. Normal developmental milestones for preschool-aged children include 

  • Mastering fundamental motor skills: running, jumping, throwing, balancing
  • Developing fine motor skills: manipulating objects, precise hand movements
  • Developing hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, body control, and sensory integration
  • Improving social skills, emotional regulation, and cognitive abilities

These milestones are indicators of a child’s physical development and can influence their future athletic abilities and interest in physical activity.

At Motus Integrative Health, our assessments go beyond simply observing these milestones. We provide a detailed evaluation of each child’s individual progress, identifying strengths and areas for improvement. This personalized approach ensures that every child receives the support they need to thrive physically.

Enhancing Athleticism through the LTAD Model

Our philosophy is grounded in the Long Term Athletic Development Model, which outlines a comprehensive framework for developing athleticism from an early age. The LTAD Model emphasizes the importance of age-appropriate skill development, advocating for a structured progression that matches the physical and cognitive stages of growth in children.

For 3-4-year-olds, the focus is on the Active Start and FUNdamentals stages, where the aim is to instill a love for physical activity while developing basic motor skills. At Motus Integrative Health, we incorporate this model into our assessments and training programs, ensuring that we provide the right environment and guidance for children to learn and enjoy movement.

How Motus Integrative Health Supports Your Child’s Development

Our team at Motus Integrative Health comprises experts in pediatric care, sports performance, and rehabilitation, all working together to support your child’s developmental and athletic journey. By applying the LTAD Model, we offer tailored programs that enhance balance, coordination, speed, and agility, catering specifically to the needs of preschool-aged children.

Through movement coaching, our specialists help children develop fundamental skills in a fun and engaging way. Our assessments allow us to track progress effectively and adapt our programs to meet each child’s unique needs, fostering a positive and encouraging environment for growth.

The Role of Pediatric Chiropractic Care in Development

In addition to athletic development, we recognize the importance of overall physical well-being in achieving athletic success. Our pediatric chiropractic services play a crucial role in ensuring that children’s bodies are properly aligned and functioning optimally. Regular adjustments and rehabilitative therapies not only support athletic development but also contribute to a healthy lifestyle from a young age.
