Do you ever feel like…
If you answered yes to any of the above, your child or students may benefit from purposeful movement activities to organize the brain for better learning development.
You may not know it yet, but purposeful movement activities create a change in the brain in two ways:
- They “awaken” the brain for learning and build bridges between the left and right sides of the brain so kids become emotionally grounded, attentive and focused, socially engaged and more aware of what’s being taught in the classroom.
- They hardwire the brain for automated learning so they can focus more on what’s happening in the classroom rather than compensating for what’s happening to their mind and body.
Most people don’t mean to do brain-building activities the wrong way. They often find ideas on social media or a Google search or even from a friend or teacher. The problem is each child’s situation is unique and different. Some kids may struggle with one thing while his friend may struggle with another.
Because there are varying levels of disconnections in the brain, it’s important to start with the right strategies that target the child’s specific brain-building needs. All your efforts could be for not or months of wasted time if the right activities are not building areas of the brain that need it most.
We definitely don’t want to take steps backward.
The truth is, starting from scratch can be confusing and overwhelming. And, knowing where to start is sometimes the hardest part. Most of the information out there can be complex and not very straightforward. You may even find a mishmash of activities to do without knowing if that’s the right place to begin.
With Alene Villaneda, CEO of Integrated Learning Strategies and Tera Robinson, OT
The Integrated Movement Activity Center is a video-based online subscription program that teaches you the most integrative ways to incorporate purposeful brain-building activities into your home, therapy sessions and classrooms. This program was designed to support you through your journey as you work to close any developmental gaps preventing your child or students from reaching their fullest academic potential.
If your child or students have any emotional, social, behavioral or developmental challenges that frustrate, confuse, or overwhelm you or your child in any way.
Our goal is to empower you with tools and strategies to help your child or students no matter their age. Your child could have small gaps in learning or specific foundational areas that need improving. The Integrated Movement Activity Center helps kids who are struggling with sensory needs, motor delays, attention trouble, big emotions or any type of special needs diagnosis. The movement center was designed to help kids at all levels with step-by-step instructions that target your child or student’s individual needs.
Types of activities you may find in the Movement Activity Center…
I know these purposeful Movement-based activities work, but I want you to see the successes as well. That is why you have 30 days to implement the activities and show me what you’re doing in your sessions, your activity plans and the strategies you’ve already been working on. If you’ve completed all that’s required in the first 30 days and are still not satisfied, I’ll happily give you a refund.
Does the Integrated Movement Activity Center replace our Occupational Therapy sessions?
This program does not replace the therapy you are doing outside the home. However, most kids only see a therapist once or twice a week, if they are lucky. The truth is, therapists need your help during the week or the child will progress at a slower rate.
These purposeful movement activities will not only support your child’s therapy, but they will also give your child the much-needed movement throughout the week that their body craves to focus and attend. Plus, therapy sessions can be upwards of $125 per hour, which is hard for most families, especially if insurance doesn’t cover any costs. Or, you may even be stuck on a waiting list to even get evaluated by a therapist, which could take months.
If your child could benefit from purposeful movement activities now, whether in therapy or not, it’s a great time to get started. The sooner we can build those bridges to awaken the brain, the more successes both you and them will see in school, at home and with their friends.
