The Move to Learn movement program is a simple, flexible sensory motor program, based on the natural movements of babies and toddlers. It was initially developed to help children who were having difficulty with learning at school or experiencing developmental delay, because it was found that these simple movements improved coordination, concentration, control and sensory processing which helped to prepare a stable foundation for academic learning, but the program is not age restricted. It can be undertaken at almost any stage of life with similar neurological benefits. The movements can help with recovery after an accident or ill health and address immaturities that may still remain from childhood—acting as a kind of neurological reboot.
Most importantly, the resulting neurological improvements from doing this program can lead to more confidence, happiness and satisfaction in daily living.
All you need: The Move to Learn Movement Program can be undertaken almost anywhere by almost anyone, in a group or by yourself in your own home. All you need is a little space and our e-booklet: Ten Gems for the Brain; The Move to Learn Movement Program for All Ages.
This e-book is an extended version of our regular Ten Gems for the Brain, with deeper explanations into the 'why & how' of what we do. It has been developed to meet the needs of adults (older teens through to seniors) who would like to benefit from our program. There are tips and adaptations for seniors and those with disabilities or physical restrictions; photographs to illustrate and a large reference section.
We’ve had exciting feedback from seniors’ groups who have been trialing the program under the inspiration and direction of Julia Dive:
“Informative, helpful course. Just as relevant for elderly folk as well as youngsters.”
“Not only have I enjoyed this course but I feel I am concentrating overall much better and my co-ordination has improved.”
“This course has been extremely good there has been development in my concentration and movement.”
“Very good for improving mind and motor dexterity.”
“This is the shortest hour of my week!”
This booklet is designed to be a stand-alone product for an adult or group of adults, to run the program for themselves in their own home or community centre. A great alternative for older teens through to seniors!
