Observe the child lying on her back and stomach.
No elicitation needed.
Many of the child’s movements are reflexive. Voluntary movements are generated through excitement or interest.
The infant needs to spend time on her tummy and back. Let parents know that lying on the back gives the infant an opportunity to explore movement of the arms and legs.
