"Motor development is an important area of study since it helps us understand all aspects of human development. Practical applications from this field of study include detection of motor abnormalities which facilitates early intervention and remediation of problems, and through our knowledge of motor development the creation of more valid, efficient, and scientifically based programs for teaching movement skills to children."

(Payne & Isaacs, 1987, pg. 19)
