The relationship between transitional motor skills and locomotion
Infant Behavior and Development
This study explores whether transitional skills and sitting correlate with locomotion onset. The development of eight infants was followed. Most transitional skills correlated with locomotor skills. Sitting and rolling did not. Transitional skills may resemble the control needed for locomotion more closely than sitting.
