Low Muscle Tone and Learning
Low muscle tone in the core can lead to posture and attentiveness issues, while similar problems in the hands result in poor handwriting and dexterity. If facial muscles are affected, pronouncing words becomes more laborious. Low muscle tone can affect various muscle groups, leading to a range of potential symptoms.
Muscles with low tone take a lot more energy to get moving, so it makes sense that these kiddos are going to get worn out faster than their friends. This isn’t to say that they’re always slow or lethargic.
