MOTOR SKILLS PROGRAMME
For children who display motor coordination difficulties we can plan a structured motor skills programme to be ran regularly or can be structured into the PE session.
Our graded motor skills programmes are designed to develop a child’s foundation movement skills (balance, posture, organisation and planning), in a fun way.
The programme can be implemented on an individual or group basis and we will modify the activities according to the child’s needs and level of ability.
School staff will be trained and supported to implement the programmes or we can provide school with trained OT staff to run the programme alongside your staff ,in order to support their training and development for either a term or school year.
The ultimate aim is to improve a child’s fine/gross motor skills thereby facilitating their ability to concentrate, sit upright and learn.
Get In Touch!
Our therapists at Tree Tops are passionate about working with educational staff to grow their knowledge and skills. School staff will be trained and supported when learning to work with children affected by sensory and motor difficulties to integrate the programmes designed for them.
Many children with learning difficulties will have sensory processing difficulties, causing them to struggle with every day experiences like movement and sound. We will assess and design individual programmes and work with teachers on how to implement these into children's routines.
Tree Tops believe all young children benefit from our therapeutic activities and interventions. Whilst we can provide programmes for developmentally delayed children, an integrated approach into the nursery environment ensures no children are overlooked.
