Enhancing Balance and Coordination in Therapeutic Preschool Programs

Discover how therapeutic preschool programs, like CST Academy, address balance and coordination challenges in children’s early development through tailored activities and pediatric occupational therapy services.

As children progress through early childhood, achieving milestones in balance and coordination is crucial. If your child experiences delays in these skills, pediatric occupational therapy offered in therapeutic preschool programs becomes essential. At CST Academy, our low teacher-to-student ratio enables personalized intervention, addressing balance and coordination challenges alongside autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and sensory processing disorders.

Signs of Difficulty:

Children struggling with balance and coordination may exhibit frequent falls, delayed crawling or walking, and reluctance to engage in physical activities. These challenges can affect attention span, social participation, and overall development.

Therapeutic Activities:

  1. Yoga Poses: Introducing simple yoga poses fosters balance, coordination, and relaxation techniques, benefiting children both in therapeutic preschool and at home.
  2. Pool Noodle Balance: Transforming a pool noodle into a makeshift balance beam encourages stability and core strength, providing a fun and accessible activity for children.
  3. Hopscotch: Creating indoor or outdoor hopscotch boards using masking tape or chalk promotes balance, coordination, and gross motor skills development.
  4. Tape Lines: Designing various patterns with tape on the floor challenges children to navigate and balance, enhancing motor planning and coordination.
  5. Balance Stones/Cushions: Incorporating balance stones or cushions into activities promotes proprioception and balance control, supporting overall coordination.

How CST Academy Can Help:

If your child could benefit from improving balance and coordination in a therapeutic preschool setting, CST Academy offers comprehensive pediatric occupational therapy services.

"After almost 2 years our son’s time at CST Academy has come to an end. The preschool program has done wonders for him. Ms Jaclyn is such a warm, kind and patient teacher. She and my son’s OT (Ms. Nikki) and ST (Ms. Erika) worked together to ensure he was meeting all of his goals. The level of collaboration between all therapies shows how dedicated they are to helping your child reach their full potential. They have all made such an impact on him, it’s amazing to see the changes since he started there. He has blossomed into a strong, confident boy who is more than prepared to start his new school in a few weeks. We will always fondly remember our time at CST Academy. Can’t recommend them enough!"
"I worked with CST Academy over a period of about 10 months. They are absolutely incredible! I also referred a friend to their program and the progress his child made just blew him away! Usually, I don’t write reviews unless I feel strongly compelled one way or the other, and in this case I do! You cannot go wrong here. I would not trust my children to anyone else. Call them and see for yourself. I have seen other programs and there is just no comparison."
