Educators and primary school teachers have described this book as:
"easy to follow"
"a motor skills bible"
"written in real people's terms"
This book explains:
* why children may find it difficult to sit still
* how technology is impacting a child's learning and development
* why children need to develop fine and gross motor skills to be 'ready' for school
* simple strategies that will give children the best start to their education
Included in this book is a CD full of printable resources that can be used in your classroom straight away.
As an Exercise Physiologist and Developmental Educator, I've worked with hundreds of passionate kindergarten teachers and primary school teachers who feel overwhelmed with the number of students in their class who are finding it difficult to sit still, unsure of how to hold a pencil properly, and confused with whether they are left-handed or right-handed.
Through the hundreds of children who I have assessed and provided learning plans and motor development programs for, the common theme is that their teachers feel unsupported and unaware of how to implement therapy strategies into their student's busy school day.
I wrote this book because teachers have been searching for a resource which explains how children learn and develop. I also wrote this book because I wanted to defend the 'naughty student' who isn't meaning to be 'naught'y but instead feel overwhelmed by their reflexes and delayed development.
