Sensory Circuits: Training for Teachers


Monday 4th March 2019, 9:30-12:30

Many children in school have not developed the basic self regulation and sensory motor skills that lay the foundation for academic learning to take place. Research has shown that by developing children’s foundational motor skills, through sensory motor programmes in schools, progress is seen in academic and learning skills such as handwriting, reading, concentration, attention and hand-eye coordination.
This course aims to equip all staff with the knowledge to identify children with motor learning difficulties including useful screening tools and ideas for individual and group sensory motor programmes using readily available school gym and playground equipment.
