Tactile Stepping Pathway
Tactile Stepping Pathway
Children work on balance while walking on the raised and rigid tactile pathway.
Improve spatial awareness while balancing
Balancing activities challenge the brain to adjust its spatial orientation using the proprioceptive system.
Balancing helps aid the brain to place words on a page, to read from left to right and to write patterns in sequence.
Activities that involve balancing help the brain to anchor information and improve memory retrieval.
Advanced Balance Path
869 - ABL Advanced Balance Path
This Advanced Balance Path, inspired by rippling sand, stimulates a tactile balance. This path has a specially designed large degree of twist and tilt, alternating the position of the base to create different heights for various challenges. Use the log and path pieces to adjust height and difficulty in this pathway.
Ends of the path pieces are inclined in different directions to offer options. This path has no completely flat sides, and offers a challenge to children while climbing, as more concentration is needed. The rippled texture of the path can provide tactile input as well as grip while climbing and walking.
Set includes 6 pieces: 3 logs and 3 bridges

The balance rope is 6 foot long. The 2" round polypropylene rope provides a more challenging walking surface than a traditional flat beam, increasing the balance difficulty for all ages.
Why are gross motor skills important?
Gross motor skills are important to enable children to perform everyday functions, such as walking, running, skipping, as well as playground skills (e.g. climbing) and sporting skills (e.g. catching, throwing and hitting a ball with a bat). These are crucial for everyday self-care skills like dressing (where you need to be able to stand on one leg to put your leg into a pant leg without falling over).
Gross motor abilities also have an influence on other everyday functions. For example, a child's ability to maintain table top posture (upper body support) will affect their ability to participate in fine motor skills (e.g. writing, drawing, and cutting) and sitting upright to attend to class instruction, which then impacts on their academic learning. Gross motor skills impact on your endurance to cope with a full day of school (sitting upright at a desk, moving between classrooms, carrying your heavy school bag).
