Delivered by the Cognition and Learning Team, this workshop will look at the widespread causes and effects of motor skills immaturity in children and how to identify it.
We will look at the impact of the difficulty on learning, self-esteem and often behaviour, and at ways of remediating and overcoming it.
The workshop is a practical one and we will look in depth at strategies to overcome the difficulties.
There will also be a focus on handwriting itself and how to improve this in children.
