A reading specialist and occupational therapist come together to discuss why children struggle with academics and behavior challenges. This book is packed with powerful learning theory and practical application. The authors solidly explain why optimal learning occurs when connecting body, mind, and emotions. The theory is based on Margot Heiniger White's Learning Pyramid, developed from over 30 years working with children experiencing behavior and developmental challenges. Integration of eight pyramid levels lead to academic, emotional, and social success. The book is divided into chapters for each pyramid level. Strategies for success, student profiles, integrative movements and activities are included in each chapter. Interviews with specialists in the fields of autism, developmental optometry, and listening therapy bring together perspectives from related fields. Five years of statistical data showing the effectiveness of the program is found in the appendix. Poster PE, Minute Moves, and Focus Plans also available by the authors. "As soon as teachers recognize that movement helps children learn, they search for safe and appropriate activities to incorporate into their school day. Thank you, Debra and Margot, for a book chock-full of imaginative, stimulating, and effective movement ideas!" --Carol Stock Kranowitz, author, The Out-of-Sync Child.
