Motor Skills Training

Many children display difficulties with poor planning/organisation/co-ordination and attention skills, which hinders academic performance.

Our interactive training day workshop incorporates structured and practical sessions.  These will enhance your knowledge of motor development in relation to a child’s education and understand the importance of movement for function and attention.

Following training each participant will be able to:

  • Identify children with motor skills difficulties who are at risk of not reaching their academic potential.
  • Use Tree Tops checklist to baseline their programme and target relevant areas.
  • Design and implement a structured motor skills programme.
  • Evaluate/monitor a child’s progress.
  • Incorporate fine motor activities into the classroom.

How much for training in school

£1100 for up to 20 staff

(Reduced rates will be offered for partnership schools)

"Through structure and pushing the boundaries each week we saw a huge change in our son’s relationships with adults and other children. Asking our son about the experience he will tell you that he loves attending Tree Tops because it’s fun and exciting and he can wrestle with the bear in Reception."

"The Think Sensory Not Behaviour Training helped me to think of the underlying cause of many of the behaviours we see in Nursery and lots of positive strategies we can use to prevent them and support individual children.”

"I feel enormously inspired and passionate about implementing strategies to support a wide range of needs for children in our school. I'm excited to work alongside the Tree Tops team!"
