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:

  • Swings
  • Lap Sit-ups
  • Tummy Time Play
  • Bubbles
  • Balloons
