A child that has a trajectory schema is interested in things, and themselves moving in straight lines up and down or across.

It is a very common schema and one that young babies will often display, explaining why they love to drop things from their highchairs.

A child with a trajectory Schema may

  • Always seem to be running around
  • Likes throwing things
  • Likes to play with running water
  • Likes pushing things in a straight line

If your child has a trajectory schema you might like to provide

  • Provide soft balls to throw and roll
  • Blow bubbles to be caught
  • Allow them to play on swings, slides and bikes
  • Give opportunities to pour water
