At this age, your child will seem to be continually on the go—running, kicking, climbing, jumping. This yearlong energy spurt certainly will keep you on the go. But take heart—his activity level will strengthen his body and develop his coordination.

This poor score on visual skills is related to eye movements that are not precise, minor farsightedness, and incomplete development of vision centers in the brain.
