Launch of New Movement Programme for Schools

At the personal request of Yateley Manor School in Hampshire, Shelley developed  a screening tool for schools to help identify those children 'at risk' of neuromotor delays, with a 6 week movement programme aimed at helping those children whose difficulties do not warrant a referral to occupational therapy. The programme was launched in the school in Janaury 2014, and a research stusy has been carried out to measure progress.

Statistical analysis has proven that the 6 week programme significantly improved performance in three main areas:  (1) Stability, Posture and Spatial Awareness, (2) Balance and Equilibrium and (3) Fine Motor Skills and Handwriting.  

This programme will be available for use in school from January 2015.  Please email if you are interested in information on the programme.
