The stage of acquiring dynamic balance
Before the age of 4, the child must learn to direct his or her body in a given direction and then gradually refine this by moving the two feet forward side by side At 4 years of age, a child can walk one foot in front of the other, alternating on a support of at least one and a half feet in width. At 6 years, the child is able to walk one foot in front of the other heel/toe on a support of at least the width of his/her foot.
Psychomotor development :
The psychomotor development of the child has genetic, motor and psychological foundations. A product can have an influence on the psychomotor development of the child if it acts in the motor domain. This motor domain has several major components: body schema, dynamic coordination, balance, hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and temporal and spatial structuring.
The body schema is the representation that the child has of his or her body, allowing him or her to have a more refined mastery of his or her gestures, a perception of his or her body and, more generally, an awareness of self. It is first constructed from sensations and actions ("body felt, body acted"), before being represented and spoken of ("body represented", drawing of the man). The more the child acts, the more he refines his body schema and the better he acts in return.
Coordination occulo motrice
Oculo-manual coordination includes actions that enable the child to aim with all or part of his or her body: for the youngest, following a trajectory, then aiming with large objects and targets, with the hands and feet, and then smaller and smaller targets, up to the fine control of digital dissociations: tapping, stringing beads, writing.
Temporo-spatial structuring includes everything related to the child's bearings in time (before/after, rhythmic activity, day/night, season, etc.) and space (in front/behind, over/under, right/left, etc.)
