How hand-Eye coordination is influenced by age
Older children will have better hand-eye coordination then younger children.
Hand-eye coordination is important as it helps us in most of our daily activities, from making coffee towriting, driving, sports activities and even playing computer games. The information seen by the eye is sent to the brain which will then process this information and send signals through our nerves to the muscles in our hand, to respond accordingly.
Therefore hand-eye coordination is very important. Without it we will not be able to avert danger, build homes, harvest food and acquire other skills.
Hand-eye coordination starts to develop in children from infancy through their middle childhood.
