10 Crossing Midline Exercises For Kids With cp (Cerebral Palsy) Special Needs And Autism

Crossing Midline Exercises are very important for kids with cp (Cerebral Palsy) special needs and autism. Crossing midline is something that all of us do everyday without even realizing it. The reason we don’t realize it, is because it has become an integrated movement in our bodies from childhood. Today I am going to share 10 crossing midline exercises for kids.

What is Crossing Midline?

Crossing midline is an important part of development in a child. They need it for reading, writing, and many other important school activities as well as play activities.

What is midline? If you were to draw a line down the middle of your body, starting at the head, that is your midline. Every time you cross that line with either side of your body, that is crossing midline. Crossing midline is a skill that children can learn from infancy.

10 Crossing Midline Exercises for Kids

  1. Playing cars on a large path – draw a line for kids with cp (Cerebral Palsy) special needs And Autism on a large piece of paper or make a large path on the floor with blocks for your child to drive their toy cars. Put lots of turns in the path. Encourage your child to just use one hand to drive the car.
  2. Use large (adult size) paint brushes and/or rollers and let your child paint the sides of the house with water. Encourage using one hand at a time.
  3. Play flashlight tag
  4. Wash the car – Encourage your child to use his/her dominant hand and reach in all directions. Wash the windows.
  5. Practice windmills or cross crawls (hand to opposite foot or hand to opposite knee).
  6. Wiping the table with one hand (put a light coat of shaving cream all over the table and have your child wipe it off with a wet cloth).
  7. Practice step and throwing with a water balloon!
  8. Draw a large figure eight (the number eight facing side to side, not top to bottom) with sidewalk chalk for your child and have them walk the figure eight OR draw the infinity sign and have your child trace it with their finger of their dominant hand.
  9. Set up squirt gun target practice. Use both hands on the squirt gun to try and knock over cups, wash away chalk etc.
  10. Water flowers with the garden hose using two hands..
