Power House

power-housePower House refers to the back and tummy muscles important for the child to sit at the table with an upright sitting posture for the duration of their writing tasks. This is because the ‘Power House’ provides a solid base of support from which the arms and legs are free to move with precision and control! The back and tummy muscles provide your child with the core stability to support all coordinated movements.

The ‘Power House’ is also important for adequate bilateral coordination and trunk rotation. Bilateral coordination means that the both sides of the body are working comfortably together either doing the same thing like star jumps or something different like using the fork and knife. Trunk rotation means that the top half of your body can turn in a different direction to the bottom half.
