This concise and up to date text looks specifically at children’s learning through movement and the implications of this understanding for practice in early years settings. Movement is a fundamental way in which children learn, so it is vital that early years students and practitioners have a full knowledge of the subject in order to encourage and provide a range of sensory opportunities for the children in their care. The book begins by identifying early movements, examining their links to the brain and the benefits they bring. It looks at how to create movement spaces and opportunities within provision to support key learnings and then moves on to investigate two key issues: supporting children’s early writing and the different ways boys and girls learn through movement. Each chapter includes key messages, case studies to contextualise the issues and reflective questions to promote deeper understanding.

Built upon the good practice for which the Dyscovery Centre has become so well known, this book takes a broader view of the difficulties that those with additional needs face.

This is an evidence-based manual of diagnosis and interventions for helping children between three and six years old who lack a complete range of fundamental movement skills. The book outlines the difficulties young children have with movement, especially developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) and explains their assessment, using especially the early years motor skills checklist (EYMSC), a unique instrument aimed especially at children three to six years old. The management of the condition is then discussed, giving particular attention to the Special Education Needs Code of Practice. Finally the book explores the notion of a developmental coach, suggesting that parents and carers are the most appropriate individuals to fill this role.
