Dynamic Core for Kids Goes To School
29 May - 29 May 2023 @ Playful Strides Inc
There are many issues that underlie a child’s readiness to learn. Teaching staff face many challenges in the classroom (and parents at home) with posture, attention, difficulty sitting still, impulse control, clumsiness and more. Physical Therapists Shelley Mannell and Julie Wiebe present down-to-earth, practical explanations and tools for parents, teachers and staff to help children optimize their physical foundation to support their learning.
Topics of discussion for the day include the relationship of breathing and core stability to posture, toiletting, emotional self-regulation, sensory processing and attention. Discussion of need for the brain and body to move and the role of breathing creates a practical approach to supporting the whole child at home and at school.
A combination of lecture, videos and practical experiences facilitate an engaging day of learning that will equip participants with the know-how and practical skills to use in their families and in the classroom.
