This webinar will cover the tool skills necessary to begin a psychomotor skills program and utilize the Standard Celeration Chart to monitor student progress. Emphasis will be placed on systematic instruction of joint range of motion, coordinated flexibility, and gross motor games. Early work in the field will be discussed and expanded to include new insights. Collaboration with allied professionals (physical/occupational/speech therapists) will also be highlighted. Participants will come away with a roadmap to guide teaching and enable learners to better affect their world through coordinated gross motor movement.
