Below you will find a list of exercises to develop your child’s balance. It is important your child is able to practice maintaining their balance in static (still) and dynamic (moving) positions. Balance exercises are important for improving stability, co-ordination, body awareness (proprioception) and participation in age appropriate daily activities.

Some exercises have been split into Level 1 or 2. If you are finding a particular level to easy or difficult please try another level. These exercises may cause some discomfort in the muscles and you may feel slightly out of breath. This will improve once your child gets stronger. However the exercises should not elicit sharp pain or make you feel dizzy or faint, if your child experiences any of these symptoms please ask them to stop and consult with their named therapist or contact our advice line.
