Employing Minds-in-Motion Activities Can Have an Incredible Impact on Day One!

.
We were so blessed to have Candace Meyer train us again in June at the Early Childhood Minds-in-Motion training at United Way of Elkhart. We certainly appreciate the information and the educators I brought with me were totally “pumped” about everything they heard!

One of these teachers works with 3 year olds. She has one student who rocks himself continuously.

Overcoming autismHe rocks back and forth really hard almost every time he’s not completely involved in something where he CAN’T rock. (He does not have other signs of autism.)

We expressed our concern to the parents, yet the pediatrician says he’s just fine.

This morning, this teacher set up some Minds-in-Motion activities right in the classroom. When the child arrived, she directed him to the balance boards and ribbons.

The child was enthralled with both and played on them for 30 minutes, much longer than he usually stays at any activity.

As a result, she noticed as the morning moved on that the child was not rocking. Not one time! HE COMPLETELY STOPPED!

After lunch and nap time, she had him repeat the same things, balancing on the boards and moving the ribbons from right to left across his body. He didn’t rock any more during the day.

I don’t know what the difference was, but I can tell you that this child usually rocks ALL the time! Tragically, his 11-month-old brother rocks all the time too!

[THIS IS THE POWER OF VESTIBULAR STIMULATION! …Comment from Candace]

As an administrator, it was exciting for me to see this teacher so excited about how just a few changes in her classroom changed the behavior of just one child in just one day.
