Beating Dyspraxia with a Hop, Skip and a Jump
A simple exercise program to improve motor skills at home and school.
Author 1: Geoff Platt
Geoff Platt's exercise program is tailored to help children with dyspraxia to overcome their symptoms, enjoy physical activities and become as active as their friends and classmates.
This revised edition outlines the fun and easy-to-teach program, which focuses on familiar activities such as running, jumping and ball play, and explains how regular exercise routines can reduce weakness and improve motor skills, such as balance, timing and coordination. It includes extra session plans, incorporates new research, and adds a secondary stage to the exercise program, teaching the skills of praxis, planning movement and improving skills.
This practical guide will be an essential resource for PE teachers and for use by non-specialist teachers who lead recreation and games.
