Early Movement Skills Summary

Early Movement Skills by Naomi Benari

The fifth title in the "Early Skills" series is designed to help anyone caring for very young children, whether in the home, school or clinic, to use movement to enhance cognitive, emotional and physical development. These easy-to-follow activities, games, musical and rhythmical tasks are designed to enhance children's self-awareness and self-esteem; increase their knowledge of their bodies, shape, size and space; help acquire social skills, relationships and turn taking; foster creativity and self-expression; promote literacy, listening, speech and numeracy and above all, to be fun! The activities are graded from very simple movements initiated by the carer for children in very early stages of development; to more demanding activities as children develop autonomy, confidence and skills; to group activities which help to develop social skills, relationships and turn-taking. The uses of music and rhythm in furthering cognitive skills are discussed as well as how to address specific problems.

Early Movement Skills Reviews

"This is a handbook for 'anyone working with young children' easy to read, very clearly set out and easy to find your way around. I would give this book 7 out of 10" - Mary Ann Trethewey, NCMA Who Minds? "Overall, the activities are easy to follow, well sequences and adaptable for each child. Her book will be of value to paediatric occupational therapists who are interested in extending their knowledge and repertoire of movement techniques." - Chia Swee Hong, Lecturer in Occupational Therapy, University of East Anglia.
