Personal communication from Eckert, 1968. A. Roberton (1972) and Frank Smoll (1982) used this term, but it never caught on. 30 Advanced Analysis of Motor Development 3 McGraw rarely used the term stage because she didn’t believe suddenness was characteristic of the appearance of new movements. The sudden appearance of skills had been used as a criterion for a stage by Shirley. Personal communication from McGraw, 1976. 4 Personal communication from McGraw, 1976. 5 DVDs made from films that McGraw edited for public consumption are available from S.

While conceptually an intratask developmental sequence is more characteristic of a population than of an individual, some sequences, such as throwing for force, are quite robust for the individual. 7). When studying individual progress, however, context needs to be considered. Fischer and Silvern (1985) made an important distinction between a person’s functional level in a sequence and a person’s optimal level in that same sequence. The optimal level is the movement that a person can display when necessary; the functional level is what a person shows as everyday behavior.

Only the arm is active in force production. Sometimes, the forward thrust of the arm pulls the trunk into a passive left rotation (assuming a righthanded throw), but no twist-up precedes that action. If trunk action occurs, it accompanies the forward thrust of the arm by flexing forward at the hips. Preparatory extension sometimes precedes forward hip flexion. ” Occasionally, only the upper spine twists away and then toward the direction of force. The pelvis then remains fixed, facing the line of flight, or joins the rotary movement after forward spinal rotation has begun.
