Candyland Game for Pediatric Physical Therapy

by on October 12, 2016

Candyland Gross Motor Game

In celebration of Physical Therapy month, the MOSAIC physical therapy team developed their own Gross Motor Candyland Game. Our game is an introduction to our “MOSAIC Kids Master” series.

Pediatric physical therapists assess the development of gross motor skills using standardized testing to establish a baseline for each child’s developmental level. The ability to master a skill and progress from rolling, to sitting, to walking and jumping provides therapists insight to the  child’s strength, muscles tone, range of motion, balance and equilibrium responses.  If a child is not progressing with their gross motor skills, the physical therapist will use clinical reasoning, special tests, and other evaluation activities to determine the greatest areas of need for each child.  These underlying issues will be addressed using a variety of therapeutic techniques that are age and interest appropriate to meet each child’s individualized goals in an engaging, enjoyable setting.

Our “MOSAIC Kids Master” series will help families address the gross motor skills from our Candyland game and master each skill using fun, adaptable activities. Keep posted for our “MOSAIC Kids Master” activities throughout the month.

If you have concerns regarding your child’s development, you should consult with your pediatrician and a pediatric physical therapist.
