Every Movement Counts: A targeted approach for children with coordination difficulties
Audience / For: Early Years practitioners, Reception and KS1 teachers, teaching assistants, learning mentors.
A free, new Change4Life service is now available in Kensington and Chelsea, and Westminster to support children, young people and families most at risk of poor health outcomes to eat well and keep active.
This session will enable attendees to target and support children to improve their coordination skills. The programme aims to teach movement skills that better equip children for dealing with everyday situations from dressing themselves and eating to writing, all of which contribute to greater confidence and self-esteem.
The training will help you to:
- Increase understanding of the difficulties children face and the support they need to learn and move effectively
- Develop a skill set to provide a comprehensive menu of activities for sensory and motor development
- Explore strategies, environments and resources to support children reach their potential
