    Sunshine Coast Occupational Therapy Products

    Sunshine Coast Occupational Therapy Inc. presents

    Products


    Making Kids Smart!
    Accessible learning for all students, while making teacher’s job easier.

    Zone'in products are designed by Occupational Therapist Cris Rowan, who is committed to making the job of learning easy for all children. After 8 years working in schools, Cris observed many children reporting they often felt “dumb?when really they just didn’t understand HOW to learn.

    Zone’in and Move’in are two educational tools Cris designed to assist children in discovering how they can better understand the role their bodies play in learning. This knowledge is delightfully conveyed in films, games, posters and tools, resulting in happier, smarter and more successful students!

    Teachers will love how Zone’in and Move’in provides yearly assessment and intervention, for the areas of sensory-motor and fine motor function, in just one fun day!

    Zone’in
    Get Focused! Optimal Energy = Smart!

    Zone’in is an energy based program that has been developed to improve your students?learning by maximizing attention in class. Zone’inteaches children that their bodies are made of energy, and that their energy needs to be “IN THE ZONE?in order to do their work. If a child’s energy is in the “NO GO?zone (tired, day dreaming), or the “HYPER?zone (charged, wired), they cannot attend to academic tasks successfully. Often children that have trouble controlling their energy zones think they aren’t smart, or feel frustrated or bored. Zone’in will teach your students how to Know Your Zone and then Tone Your Zone by watching a film, using a Zone-O-Meter (a device they attach to their desks), looking at posters, and then using a variety of sensory motor devices called Zone Tools (attached to a wrist strap; stored on a magnet hook on the desk) to balance their energy and enable better learning.


    Move’in
    Lines and letters come to life! An assessment and intervention tool rolled into fun!

    Move’in is a motor skills program that has been designed to improve your students?printing by allowing them to create their own customized journals for written work, and customized workbooks for practicing lines, shapes, letters and numbers. Move’in begins with a film, followed by a board game called Ready, Set, Move’in designed to assess specific printing skills deficits, and provide corresponding interventions to improve printing output. Move’in includes an easy to use computer program Play’in the Lines that creates custom journals and workbooks which address each student particular needs. The custom journal re-creates each student’s choice for the type of line and spacing they would like to print on (fat, thin, ceiling, dashes, start line). The custom workbook imports the lines, shapes, letters and numbers that are most difficult for the student to produce, onto their custom journal to make their own individualized workbook. Your students will retain the printing basics of body posture, hand grip, and paper position by looking at the Move’in to Print poster.



    How to order Zone'in products for your school:

    Zone’in and Move’in programs have been designed to be an intervention performed once a year for grades K-4 classrooms, as appropriate. Therefore, schools only need to purchase one complete program kit which will suffice for the whole school (and one classroom). For the Zone’in program, we would suggest purchasing one Zone’in Auxillary Kit for each classroom which includes 2 posters, Zone’in Tool Kit and 30 Zone-O-Meters. For the Move’in program, we would suggest purchasing one Move’in Auxillary Kit for each classroom which includes a poster, grips, color transparencies and window/”L?keys.
