POSTURAL CONTROL

the capacity to manage the position of one's body. The first landmark in the growth of such takes place at around three weeks old, whenever a prone infant is first capable of lifting the head and raising the chin. Within a few weeks, further advancements in such are attained and surpassed.

POSTURAL CONTROL: "They said the baby should be exhibiting postural control by now and would like us to work on eliciting such with her."
