The exercises in this book target key areas such as core stability, motor planning, and balance, and are designed so that children with varying levels of physical ability can perform them successfully. Each exercise is paired with a rating scale that provides positive feedback and encourages children to set higher goals and challenge themselves further.
Get Stronger, Have More Fun is designed to help children of all ability levels develop strength, coordination and confidence, goals that hold great signifcance to the book's author, who had sensory processing difficulties that affected his motor planning abilities. During the nine years that the author received occupational therapy, he diligently worked on improving his strength, fine and gross motor skills. Today, as a high school student, he plays trumpet and competitive tennis, holds a black belth in Tae Kwon Do and travels around the country competing on his school's debate team.Foreword by Carolyn Murray Slutsky, MS, OTR and Betty Paris, PT, MEd
