Do you know (or have) have a child who switches the pencil between their left and right hands, has difficulty getting both hands to work together or even has difficulty learning how to ride a bike? We have one of these kids in our family and over the years we have learned that kids like this can often benefit from movement based, multi-sensory programs which help organize their brains for optimal learning. In fact, the difference in learning, attention and centeredness after working in a movement based program has been nothing short of remarkable. I’m always amazed at the differences I feel after I help my child do their exercises.
Minds in Motion is hosting a workshop later this month to help parents, educators and care givers find out more about how to overcome barriers to learning and help children (and adults) perform at their highest level, by using movement based activities and programs.
Joanne Smyth, owner of Minds in Motion, has years of experience helping kids who learn differently conquer those barriers and succeed academically while gaining a real understanding of how and why their brains work a little differently. She’s welcoming Paul Hyman from Brain Fitness International for the workshop which takes place November 24 in Guelph. For more information or to register by the November 20th deadline please contact Joanne at 519-362-1336.
