Eight to Twelve Months

RED.jpgBy 8-12 months, babies can judge distances well. Visual Motor Integration allows them to grasp and throw objects fairly accurately. Perception skills such as visual memory and visual discrimination help babies make sense of the world they see. The integration of their vision and fine motor coordination allows babies to control smaller objects, and many begin feeding themselves with finger foods. Once children begin walking, they learn to use their eyes to direct and coordinate their bodies' large muscle groups to guide their whole body movements.
