Get Your Brain "just right" for Learning
The Ready Approach
Laura Barker, who is an OT from Michigan and national presenter on The Ready Approach to sensory processing, visited Central Lyon Monday, September 12. She held some consultations and observations in the lower elementary with the goal of helping students be more successful.
Laura gave brief 15-minute presentations to nine Central Lyon classrooms about how to get the brain "just right" for learning. She presented easy activities the students could quickly do if they felt like their brain was running "too fast" or "too slow" for learning. Her information is helpful for all brains and students of all ages and abilities, but it is especially helpful for those who have ADD/ADHD, Autism, behavioral and/or learning challenges. Laura and Jill Jansma, Central Lyon para Senior Ready Associate, will be teaching a training in Rapid City at the end of the week.
