Learning to sustain focus on objects (like caretaker’s face) and follow moving targets (like a toy) help build the visual foundation critical for all eye hand demands later in life.
Coordinating the movement of the arm to reach for objects begins a lifelong journey to connect the intention of movement to success functioning in the world.
Activities great for Eye Contact and Enhancing Visual Attention:
- Lap Sit-ups
- Tummy Time Play
