Movement Based Learning for Children with Special Needs

What is Movement Based Learning?

Movement Based Learning is a way to begin to understand and apply the concept that movement of the body affects the integration of brain function. When the brain is in an integrated state (i.e. able to access all parts of the brain), we return to our natural, normal curious state of learning. It is from this solid foundational space that we can reach our greatest potential.
