A Guide to Crossing Midline
For children, crossing midline is the ability to reach across their bodies. This is important because it helps in the coordination of both sides of the body when performing many movements, such as skipping, riding a bike, and more. Pediatric occupational therapists use crossing midline activities to help children perform smooth and coordinated movements and promote independence as children develop. This guide provides caregivers and clinicians education on the how to practice activities that target crossing the midline.
