Neuromotor Readiness for Learning

Neuromotor Readiness for Learning

Many problems with reading, writing, spelling, maths, concentration, under-achievement and behaviour have their roots in immature development of physical abilities which support many aspects of learning. At TLH, we are able to carry out detailed assessments of children’s physical abilities from general coordination and balance needed for posture, coordination and ability to sit still, to the eye movements needed for reading, writing, copying and catching a ball. While there can be many social and educational reasons for specific learning difficulties, physical abilities underpin every aspect of learning, from the eye movements needed for reading, hand-eye coordination for writing, sequence for learning tables, days of the week, months of the year, and spatial awareness involved in solving certain mathematical problems and for social interaction. When such problems are corrected, children can start to achieve. Through our assessment and analysis of your child, we will devise simple and effective physical exercises that are easy for your child to do, to help overcome the physical basis to learning and behavioural difficulties. This program is for 4 to 7 years old children.
