Benefits of Rolling

Monday, June 21, 2010
Benefits of Rolling: Most everyday locomotor movements of children, such as walking, running, and crawling, involve the use of the arms and/or legs.  Rolling, however, is initiated from the center of the body, with the body being propelled in a prone state by the hips and torso.  Rolling is also unique in that it allows the child to experience the sensation of seeing the world from his stomach and back all in one continuous movement.  This provides good stimulation for the vestibular system, which is important in many ways to a child's development, especially for his sense of balance and orientation in space.
