The maker of S’cool Moves brings you Power Ups!!
Participants learn how to easily incorporate therapy-based movement into the classroom setting to enhance the learning potential of all students.
Nine student learner profiles are discussed (i.e. dyslexic, developmental [preschool], muddled learner/reader) with innovative and novel movement activities to support each type of learner. Participants learn ways to transfer skills taught in the therapy room to the classroom setting for optimizing learning. Through the use of S’cool Moves, activities students improve:
- motor planning,
- core strength,
- vestibular activation,
- hemispheric integration, and
- sensory-motor systems within the context of academic skill acquisition.
As always, S’cool Moves is all about collaboration, so therapists and teachers will grow in their understanding of approaching learning and reading as a team sport. This course deepens participants’ understanding of how to support learners and struggling readers using a neurodevelopmental approach.
***Please note that the S’cool Moves Level 1 Course is recommended but not mandatory prior to taking this course. This course builds on the research, theory, and activities learned in the ORIGINAL course.
