“Could do better” – Is your child bright but underachieving in the classroom?
Sally Goddard Blythe MSc (Psych), author and specialist in child development, will explain why some children fail to reach expectations; how to recognise signs of neuromotor immaturity, visual and auditory processing difficulties and what can be done to help. A growing body of evidence suggests that there is a rise in the number of children starting school with immature motor skills, which act as barriers to learning and undermine performance in the classroom.
The lecture will cover:
- signs and symptoms of immature motor skills
- links to education and behaviour
- why some children slip through the net of professional services
- what can be done to help
This lecture is suitable for parents, teachers. health professionals, and psychologists.
