“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.
