Is every child ready for school?
Looking beyond the symptoms
Thursday 1st May 2014 7.15pm
Room CBE013, The Beswick Building. University of Chester. Parkgate Road, Chester.
A growing body of evidence suggests that there is a rise in the number of children starting school with immature motor skills, which hinder their ability to learn and undermine achievement in the classroom
Sally Goddard Blythe, MSc.
Author of seven books on child development including:
“Attention, Balance and Coordination – the A,B,C of Learning Success”, “What Babies and Children Really Need”, “The INPP Screening test and School Intervention Programme” and a new screening test for clinicians,
will explain how physical development supports learning, emotional functioning and behaviour and how immature motor skills can affect learning and behavior – dyslexia, dyspraxia, attention deficit disorder – and under-achievement
The talk will cover:
Signs and symptoms of immature motor skills
Links to education and behavior
Why some children slip through the net of professional services
What can be done to help
