Too often we forget what it’s like to try to sit still and concentrate, and we expect too much of our children. Dr Melodie de Jager has made a study of the connection between children’s bodies and their ability to learn. She offers exercises for a number of different types of learning styles and problems. The large number of illustrations make this idiot-proof for parents to try at home. Should be fun! You can try the exercises yourself too, for example if you are going to be doing a big presentation or giving a speech.We don’t like
It is not the easiest concept to get the hang of, although once you get into it, it’s not as scarily scientific as it seems. If you struggle, it might be best to take the book with you to a session with the occupational therapist to get you started, and then delve deeper into the exercises offered here.Have you read this book?
