Postural Control

A person's ability to control their body to achieve, maintain, or restore a state of balance and stability. Simply put, this is the child's ability to maintain orientation so that their body mass is within their point of contact with their support surface while moving (dynamic) or staying still (static).
 
This includes aligning the head and trunk with respect to gravity, their support surface, and the child's surroundings.
