Balancing on Ball
The parrot is again demonstrating
his excellent sensory integration to
balance while rolling a ball. This activity requires
shifting his weight
from side to side as he alternates lifting each foot.
Human children demonstrate their developing balance as they learn
- Stand on one foot between 16 and 17 months
- Kick a ball forward between 18 and 24 months
- Jump in place with both feet bewtween 22-30 months
- Stand on tiptoes between 23 and 25 months
