Gross motor: Skills that require whole body movement and involve large muscles to perform everyday functions. Examples—standing, walking, running, jumping, catching, and sitting upright.

Fine motor: Skills that require the use of smaller muscles in the hand to perform everyday activities. Examples—opening packages, dressing, writing, and cutting.

Language: Skills that require the use of receptive and expressive speech to interact and complete everyday tasks. Receptive language is the ability to understand, such as, reading or listening. Expressive language is the ability to produce, such as, speaking or writing.
