Harnessing Energy: Sensory Tools and Techniques for Responsible Learning
Harnessing Energy raises awareness regarding the reasons why Today’s Children are unable to pay attention and learn. For learning to take place, children are required to process and integrate incoming sensory information from their environment. This sensation is in the form of energy, and energy from the environment “primes” the body for leaning. Children who overuse technology, experience body energy that is either charged or zoned out, limiting learning. Teachers, parents and therapists will experience use of sensory tools and techniques to enable children to self regulate their energy bodies, to enhance attention and improve learning skill.
