Maturational Perspective The theory that motor development is an internal or innate process driven by a biological or genetic time clock (genetics & hereditary)
Normative Descriptive Period A period in motor development history that emphasized norm-referenced standardized tests for measuring motor performance
Biomechanical Descriptive Period A period in motor development history that emphasized the sequential attainment of biomechanically efficient movement patterns
Informational Processing Perspective A theory of motor learning and development described in terms of computer-like operations occurring as a result of external or environmental input
Ecological Perspective A theory of motor development across the lifespan that accounts for many constraints or systems that exist both in the body and outside the body
Dynamic Systems Approach A theory that developmental systems are complex, coordinated, and self-organizing, emphasizing environmental interactions over traditional elements such as age or genetics
Rate Limiter An individual constraint or system that holds back or slows the emergence of a motor skill
Affordance The function an environmental object provides to an individual & related to the size and shape of the object and the individual in a particular setting
