ABC's or SOL?

ABC’s (Agility, Balance, Coordination) of movement are often used within Multi-skills sessions as a way of differentiating movement opportunities for children. Although easy to remember, ABC’s are limited in the range of movements that come to mind when people are using the approach. For example, Balance is often thought of as the ability to hold a static position. At ESP we have found that SOL (Stability, Object Control and Locomotion) represents a greater and more diverse range of movements and configures to models more readily accepted around the world as developmentally appropriate for children and adolescents.
