Throughout the year we will be offering Movement Method Workshops at the Club. Dates coming soon.
Movement Method is a set of easy to follow guidelines that anyone can use to create an environment that promotes learning.
ADD/ADHD, Autism, Sensory-Processing-Disorder, Learning Difficulties – Parents and teachers have never faced such numbers of kids with these diagnoses as we find today. Drugs won’t fix it. Traditional education can’t handle it. The key is movement and the brain – an understanding how the two are linked. There is no longer any dispute among neuro-scientists and educational psychologists that movement is what stimulates the child’s brain.
The key is to understand why and how.
This is what Movement Method will teach you, whether you want to apply it a regular classroom context, homeschooling or outdoor education.
The workshops will take place in a village close to Market Harborough, Leicestershire which is an easy 1hr train ride from London. They will be hosted by kinetic learning expert Arabella Carter-Johnson, autism Mum and author of the best selling book ‘Iris Grace‘.
Topics that will be covered include information on the science of learning including how the autistic brain learns best, how to set up an environment that promotes learning and how to teach outside in nature through movement and your child’s interests.
