I have been recently told that crawling is a very important milestone as it affects the child's ability to read. This is due to the fact that crawling connects the left and right side of the brain, which is required for reading.
I had never heard this in my life but was surprised after a google search to find lots of professionals agreeing with the theory.
Personally, I am not at all convinced. I would have thought reading to your child, encouraging them with language and helping them to write is the way to go to help with reading!!
Is there truth in this theory or is it something thought up by professionals with far too much time on their hands......??
