DEVELOPING HAND EYE COORDINATION

It seems simple, but hand-eye coordination involves many body systems. It involves knowing where the body is in space and how it is moving, with visual processing. Hand-eye coordination is important in everyday tasks such as grasping objects, handwriting, playing games, eating, cooking, and even doing one’s hair. As with other body skills, hand-eye coordination can be practiced and improved upon.
