Number of Repetitions: Crawl forward for 2 minutes each day for 4 weeks.
Goal: To crawl forward easily and smoothly and in a coordinated manner, using opposing hands and knees.
1. Start in table position (Figure 1).
- In table position, there are 4 contact points with the floor. Begin crawling, lifting and advancing 2 opposing points—right hand, left knee and setting them down at the same time. Then follow with left hand, right knee. (Figure 2, Figure 3, Figure 4)
- Turn head to focus eyes on each hand as it takes the lead.
Movement is not smooth and coordinated.
Hands or knees do not move in correct sequence.
Eyes do not follow leading hand.
Difficulty maintain table position (back dips or arches)
Movement in right-right-left-left pattern instead of right-left-right-left pattern.
Please review the observation checklist. If any deviations or improper techniques are still observed after 4 weeks, continue this exercise for another week.
