To improve directional concepts Rhythmic Writing is educational therapy's backbone, it will help meet any or all of these goals.
1. To develop the ability to do 2 or more things at the same time.
2. To establish hemispheric specialization for language
3. To improve visual-motor integration (eye-hand coordination)
4. To improve directional concepts
5. To improve visual sequential memory
A student who has difficulty in the language area will benefit from developing one hemisphere of the brain to be the dominant hemisphere for language. This dominant hemisphere is usually opposite of the child's dominant hand. When a dominant hemisphere is established for specializing in language, the student becomes more organized in his/her thinking.
Rhythmic Writing helps to develop hemispheric dominance.
In addition to developing a dominant hemisphere, it is also important for a student to integrate both hemispheres of the brain. Crossing the mid-line forces both hemispheres to be involved in the task and thus develops that integration.
The student's directionality concepts are strengthened as he/she does left/right counts.
We will also be combining penmanship with this class
We will be doing executive function exercise writing and will use one penmanship book.
