Integrating Movement Experiences into the Classroom

...for the Special Needs Child

Focus on: Grades K - 5
Course Number: SPED504N

Incorporating movement into your classroom provides a fresh approach to learning about and teaching children with special needs. The problems we will address include language and social learning disorders, visual/spatial/perceptual difficulties, and attention or other organizational deficits.  In this course, you will learn how to integrate creative dance, rhythms, poetry, and chanting games into your curriculum. The emphasis in this course is on developing ways to encourage children's attention, listening, and social skills through the medium of movement. You will come away with a "toolbox' of materials you can use daily to enhance your students' learning experiences by utilizing techniques that are easily adaptable for all classrooms. No previous dance training is necessary.

Come in comfortable clothing.
