Motor Planning & Sequencing
Motor planning and sequencing involves planning and ordering new muscle (motor) actions. It involves generating an idea of what you want to do (ideation), figuring out how you are going to do it (motor planning) and then doing or carrying out what you wanted to do (execution).
Integration of the brain and senses (e.g. touch, movement, vision, hearing) is required for good planning and sequencing. Frequently we find that efficient, effective sequencing of planning and executing movement is not second nature for many of the clients we see.
Broken down, motor planning and sequencing involves 3 parts:
- Formation of ideas and concepts
