The specific skill pattern investigated was the ability of subjects, using either their dominant or nondominant hand, to catch a ball when they were unable to see their arm or hand. An "L" shaped curtain containing a hole for the ball to pass through was used for this study. situation requiring them to catch with their non-dominant hand, But, when it came to performing under more difficult conditions, namely the kinesthetic ball catching task, the dominant hand was superior in it's ability to catch the ball. Examination of the kinesthetic ability of individuals with different types of CP, such as tetraplegia and hemiplegia, has led to conflicting results (Cooper et al.   Strengths of Kinesthetic Learners. Kinesthetic learners have many strengths that will help them achieve success in the classroom: Great hand-eye coordination. Quick reactions. Excellent motor memory (can duplicate something after doing it once) Excellent experimenters. Good at sports. Perform well in art and : Kelly Roell.

Place items for use in activities such as puzzles, tangrams, or construction tasks in random positions on the table on the child’s left and right sides as well as in midline. Observe his use of a dominant hand, his switching hands, or the use of a unilateral reach as he completes the activity. To objectively measure ball catching short and long ball catching tests were developed to assess children between seven and nine years of age. The long test made use of a tennis ball machine to standardise the ball throwing procedure. But what does kinesthetic mean? The term kinesthetic refers to touching, doing, experiencing, or being physically active, and it’s one of the three main pathways to the brain. Kinesthetic Activities Are Important for All Learners.

Cross-dominance, also known as mixed-handedness, hand confusion, or mixed dominance, is a motor skill manifestation in which a person favors one hand for some tasks and the other hand for others, or a hand and the contralateral leg. For example, a cross-dominant person might write with the right hand and do everything else with the left one, or manage and kick a ball .   HAND PREFERENCE. Hand preference is typically assessed with a handedness questionnaire (McManus and Bryden, ).A plethora of instruments are currently in circulation, including the Crovitz–Zener Scale (Crovitz and Zener, ), the Annett Handedness Questionnaire (Annett, a), the Edinburgh Handedness Inventory (Oldfield, ), the Cited by: As toddlers progress in development, they will begin to establish a dominant hand and crossing midline. This ability to utilize a dominant hand and a non-dominant hand in activities indicates a maturation of the brain and lateralization in functional tasks, which is very important for motor planning, directionality, and visual motor skills. Using dominant hand overhand stroke, students throw ball to wall and attempt to catch rebounding ball before it hits the floor twice. Repeat using non-dominant hand. Repeat 10 times with each hand. o Repeat previous drill 25' from wall. o Repeat previous drill 30' from wall. o Repeat previous drill 35' from wall. Overhand Throwing Drills With File Size: KB.
