Why these Core Muscle Exercises Help Prevent Learning Challenges in the Classroom

By: Integrated Learning Strategies

Parents should focus on the educational aspects of reading, writing and spelling, but also ask questions about their child's sensitivities, athletic abilities, and developmental milestones. These questions can help them understand how to help their child learn.

Play-based movement is being taken away from classrooms, leading to more learning challenges such as SPD, ADHD, Autism, Dysgraphia and Dyslexia. Sitting inactivates these muscles, making them weaker and leading to developmental delays.

Poor core muscles in the neck, tummy, legs, eyes, arms and fingers are key to triggering the brain for higher learning concepts. This can lead to poor copying, hand-eye coordination, attention and focus in the classroom, and other issues related to their vestibular system. Children with poor core muscle strength are at risk of under-achieving in school due to their lack of motor skills and core muscle strength. Additionally, they may have retained primitive reflexes from birth, which can lead to toe walking or bed wetting. Exercises can help improve these issues.
