Movement and Drawing Exercises to Help Development and Learning Difficulties (Stages 1, 2 and 3)
5 One-Day Workshops
Gordan Wollard returns to Clare Education Centre to engage participants in highly interactive workshops around Movement and Drawing Exercises to Help Development and Learning Difficulties . Teachers consistently rate Gordan’s workshops as hugely beneficial in their understanding of why a child struggles at school and in providing support.
The courses are suitable for SET Teachers, Class Teachers, Special Needs Assistants and Second Level Teachers. The course consists of a series of 5 one-day workshops. It is not necessary to do them in numerical order because you can catch-up at a later stage. Each workshop has wider content that links them together so that participants starting in mid-sequence have no difficulty and can gain fully from where they begin, on both diagnostic and remedial methods. Please register for each workshop individually.
Unfortunately, we are not in a position to offer substitute cover for theses workshops.
A task belonging in the early years is to master the spatial world. To do this is to break the natural symmetry with which we have been born and to develop accurate, harmonious movement. If accomplished, a child is in this respect ready for school, ready for literacy and numeracy, ready to make bodily movement internal.
Often, however, when a child struggles at school, it is found that his or her development has not taken that course, or not entirely. Subsequent remedial work to complete the early years’ tasks then proves to bear fruit, not only in coordination but also in writing, reading and the capacity to manage the school environment.
This work on the Development of the Senses has evolved out of the earlier educational work of Audrey McAllen whose book “The Extra Lesson” is subtitled: Movement, Drawing and Painting Exercises to Help Children with Difficulties in Writing, Reading and Arithmetic.
Suitable for Learning Support Teachers and Class Teachers the workshops aim to equip teachers with insights and an effective group of exercises to carry into their day-to-day work.The exercises are formed so as make-up-for and move-on the developmental struggles of individual children. They also improve the overall skill-level of a class and support concentration.
Without any obligation, participants are invited to do the exercises and all will receive material on how to do them.
