This useful text presents a program of activities to improve perceptual and sensorimotor functioning in children who are developmentally delayed or disabled. Appropriate for a wide range of children, from intellectually disabled to learning disabled, the program is divided into two parts: Early Locomotor Development and Basic Balance Activities. Each section includes observation criteria, activities for sensory input, activities for postural control, gross and fine motor exercises, illustrative photographs, required materials, and therapeutic objectives.
The Second Edition incorporates research on neuromotor development in intellectually disabled children. And it adds revised lesson plans that are easier to use, a model of the treatment program adapted for learning-disabled children, and guidelines for adapting the program for other populations, including developmentally disabled adults and preschoolers.
Designed for occupational and physical therapists, it can also be used by teachers and other professionals who are helping implement sensorimotor therapy. Spiralbound (8 1/2" x 11"), 132 pp:
