This blog is a continuation of my previous blogs regarding proving children disabled. I will be providing some specific examples of limitations in each domain to help you better understand what must exist and be documented to prove your child disabled.
Moving About and Manipulating Objects
Has muscle weakness, joint stiffness, or sensory loss that interferes with motor activities (for example, unintentionally drops things).
Has trouble climbing up and down stairs, or has jerky or disorganized locomotion, or difficulty with balance.
Has trouble coordinating gross motor movements (for example, bending, kneeling, crawling, running, jumping rope, or riding a bicycle).
Has difficulty with sequencing hand or finger movements (for example, using utensils or manipulating buttons).
Has difficulty with fine motor movements (for example, gripping and grasping objects).
Has poor eye-hand coordination when using a pencil or scissors.
Please keep in mind that these examples are not all inclusive but just a brief review of SOME of the limitations that may exist. Also, not all examples will be appropriate for children of all ages.
