Sensory and Cognitive Development
Vestibular-cerebellum – stimulation of the neural networks in the balance centre in the brain.
Proprioception – stimulation of muscle and joint receptors responsible for body and spatial awareness.
Differentiation – full conscious control of moving only one part of the body while other limbs remain still.
Visual-Motor Integration - communication between the eyes, brain and muscle to measure distance and throw effectively.
Motor planning and Directionality – slow down the body and think about how to throw the beanbag into the hoop.
Focus and concentration – necessary to activate in order to do the activity correctly.
Directionality – Awareness of the correct direction in which to move the arms in order for the ball to hit the target.
