Smart Moves - Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head

Our "Try it Tuesday" is a book recommendation.

Smart Moves - Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head

I'm currently reading this book for a discussion on a developmental therapy support group list-serve. I've read a lot of books that explain the senses and the concept of sensory integration and I've read books with ideas for sensory diet activities. This book does more to explain how sensory input and movement initiate, influence, promote, and re-mediate brain development. It also emphasises the importance emotion plays in the ability to learn and reason. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is home schooling a child (special needs or neuro-typical), anyone whose child is receiving or would benefit from sensory integration therapy, and anyone who works with school age children.

If you've read this book I'd love to hear your opinions and experiences with it.
