This course will examine the progression/regression of motor skill development across the lifespan. Beginning with conceptual modeling of motor development, multiple factors influencing motor skill development will be examined. Assessment methods will be identified that facilitate benchmarking and monitoring change.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Differentiate between various motor development models.
- Differentiate appropriate assessment methods in motor development.
- Describe the interrelationship between self-esteem and motor skill acquisition.
- Differentiate between physical growth and biological maturation, and their influence on motor development from infancy through adolescence.
- Describe the sequencing and refinement of fundamental movement patterns from infancy through adolescence.
- Distinguish the key factors in the social, perceptual, and cognitive processes in motor skill acquisition.
- Explain prenatal factors that influence development.
- Describe gender differences in motor development.
- Describe key constructs in Dynamical Systems Theory.
- Describe motor development issues in adulthood.
- Create a developmentally appropriate program plan to enhance motor behavior.
