Motor Skills Activities and Exercises for Children aged 3-9, including those with Special Educational Needs (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This book provides a theoretical and practical framework for promoting development of fundamental skills, such as focus, posture and sensory processing, in children aged 3-9, especially those with special educational needs.

Firmly based in research and practical experience, this book provides busy people with clearly-structured ways to incorporate motor skills activities into children's early development. The activities and strategies presented are well-chosen to work with children's natural developmental processes, and will help improve their vocabulary, auditory processing, and emotional regulation, to name a few examples. As a counterbalance to common emphasis on aerobic-style interventions, the book also demonstrates the value of slow and controlled movement in developing body awareness and sensory regulation.

This is for all early years practitioners, education professionals, PE staff and those working in special education, who want to enhance the motor skills of 3-9-year-olds.
