Children learn to investigate their environment by seeing, crawling, reaching, and touching. The multitude of information they receive through their senses enables them to continue developing. Before a child can learn to walk he or she must first learn to crawl. Crawling is part of the natural development in life as a child grows from infant to toddler. For some children with neurological disabilities or sensory impairments, crawling is not something that comes naturally. It must be learned with the assistance from others so that they have the basis themselves for standing on their own two feet.
