Difficulty in Physical Education
Physical education involves the use of balance, coordination and visual functioning. A problem in any one of these areas, or hypersensitivity to certain sensory stimuli can contribute to a child under-performing and/or developing a dislike and avoidance of sporting activities.
Paradoxically, there are some children who are excellent at sport but who under-perform in the classroom. This can be connected to differences in control of static and dynamic balance.
