Poor core muscles in the neck, tummy, legs, eyes, arms and fingers are key to triggering the brain for higher learning concepts. This can lead to poor copying, hand-eye coordination, attention and focus in the classroom, and other issues related to their vestibular system. Children with poor core muscle strength are at risk of under-achieving in school due to their lack of motor skills and core muscle strength. Additionally, they may have retained primitive reflexes from birth, which can lead to toe walking or bed wetting. Exercises can help improve these issues.
