Each of these sets contain five kinds of movement patterns: (1) general movements, for control and coordination; (2) specific movements, for development of skill and dexterity; (3) eye movements, for improved visual perception; (4) communication patterns, for development of body and vocal language; and (5) visual-perceptual patterns, for observing and thinking.
