OT Corner: Crossing the Midline – Why is it Important?
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Most of us do not realize how significant the words “crossing midline” is in the development of skills beginning in infancy. Crossing midline is important to develop because it helps in a child’s brain development to get both sides of the brain and body working together. When children have difficulty crossing midline this can lead to poor body awareness and motor coordination for handwriting and reading activities, dressing independently, participation in sports, and more.
