toys and considerable stimulation practice and experience in a variety of movement activities Jimmy few toys and minimal motor stimulation Both were exposed to selected mvt activities Johnny amp Jimmy Attitude Johnny successful in roller skating when 11 months old He became reckless soon after causing his performance to decline Jimmy had less skating problems He maintained a much more cautious approach to movement Johnny was more self centered Jimmy thankful for what he had Johnny amp Jimmy Practice Johnny descended slopes much better than his brother and developed clever strategies in the process Jimmy was much less capable and very timid in his performance Johnny amp Jimmy Readiness q Johnny was introduced to tricycling when he was 11 months old He was incapable of much success at the skill until 8 months later Jimmy was given a tricycle when he was 22 months and tricycled immediately despite his lack of early stimulation It doesn t matter how early a child get a toy he has to be ready emotionally physically and mentally Johnny ampJimmy Growth Johnny roller skated well when he was 11 months old but declined in his ability thereafter By age 3 both twins skating ability declined rapidly This regression was attributed to increasing height which impeded balance Johnny amp Jimmy Level of Fixity Both twins maintained their tricycling ability well despite a period of
