Motor development describes the way a child develops movement patterns and skills that allow them to move and interact within their environment. Children develop motor skills in a predictable, sequential pattern. Motor development can be broken down into gross motor skills, such as walking or sitting, and fine motor skills, such as grasping or eating.
