Review lezing/workshop ouderavond
Evelien combineerde recente neurowetenschappelijke inzichten met integrale medische kennis. Ouders waren enthousiast, stelden verhelderende vragen, waardoor ze meer inzicht kregen in de motorische ontwikkeling van hun kind. Door de levendige manier van vertellen en de voorbeelden die Evelien gaf, was er grote herkenbaarhei. Wij bedanken Evelien hartelijk voor haar boeiende lezing en hopen op meer van deze inhoudelijke ouderavonden! Namens alle leerkachten, Esther van Beek en Jolanda van Dam

 
 

Recensie: Why dont’t children sit still? 

Explores how children develop motor sensory skills, revealing the reasons why children don't sit still

A practical and insightful parenting guide filled with reassuring and useful advice 

Written by a children's physiotherapist with over 30 years experience in her field

Why is my son so clumsy? Why is my daughter's handwriting so messy? My children only want to play video games: will lack of movement really hurt them? 

Movement is essential in helping children develop not only motor skills but also intellectual, emotional and social skills. Children learn through 'doing' and play. But a child's journey to learn how to control their body can cause frustration in parents. How often do parents say, "Can you not just sit still?" or treat a grazed knee when children fall over their own feet? 

By understanding how children develop sensory motor skills -- that is, get information through their senses and respond with their physical body -- parents can start to address and find reassurance about the issues that concern them. 

In this practical and insightful book, van Dort's uses her thirty years' experience as a children's physiotherapist, and draws on Rudolf Steiner's theories of child development, to outline how children develop skills such as spacial awareness, balance, coordination and telling right from left. This book will inform and reassure any parent or educator about the impact of a child's movement on their wider learning.

Author Evelien van Dort is a children's physiotherapist in the Netherlands with over thirty years' experience. She has two children, and has written many story books for children. She was knighted in 2016 in recognition of her services to literature and literacy.

Review: I found this book very interesting and thought-provoking. I've learnt a lot from Evelien's insights and advice.
