Learners are signing up for a four week FLEXIBLE schedule course. This course will NOT have live meetings. Instead, a weekly ~30 minute video will be posted within the Outschool classroom by Monday morning at 8am. Learners will have the week to access the video and complete all exercises and activities, as well as to post their feedback (i.e. video, photo, questions, etc) and engage in class discussion.

The goal will be for your child to utilize the classroom videos and resources to increase their regulation, as shown by improved attention, activity level, and behavior. After each video, I hope that children are able to identify one new activity that helps their body feel good and relaxed. The long-term goal for this class is for your child to 1. Demonstrate a growing awareness of how their body is feeling and what they "need" to regulate, and 2. Identify some tools/strategies they can independently utilize to promote a more organized, calm body throughout the day and in various situations. As your child's body awareness and regulation improves, so too will their ability to attend, maintain a calm body, and learn.
Teacher is a registered, licensed occupational therapist that is certified in Sensory Integration.
As this is a flexible schedule class, learners will be able to access videos and supplemental documents and participate within the Outschool classroom at their convenience during the week. However, consistent participation is asked of each learner in order to practice regulation techniques and become more comfortable and independent utilizing these skills. A weekly homework assignment will be posted within the Outschool classroom (learners will be provided with two options). These assignments will be fun, multi-sensory activities or games to promote increased practice and comprehension of skills. Printing may be required depending on your preferred assignment selection. Learners will submit their work by the end of each week for peer and teacher feedback. In addition, learners will be asked to interact with each post by completing the lesson, submitting work or proof of completion (i.e. photo or video), reading learner comments, and replying to peer posts.
For this class, your child will require a larger area of space to work/move in. For example, they will be participating in yoga, completing animal crawls, jumping, etc. They will need a safe place to move about. In addition, we will utilize the following items from time to time: *Water bottle (just in case they get thirsty) *Plastic straws *Cotton balls, craft pom poms, or even tissue wadded up into small balls *A juggling scarf or tissue *A printer (to print the weekly homework assignment) Recommended, but not required: *Pinwheel *Yoga mat depending on floor type
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will require space to move around in. For example, they will be participating in yoga, completing animal crawls, jumping, etc. This class may not be appropriate for those that do not have a safe space for children to complete these activities. The class does not require shoes. However, if you have slippery floors, please make sure your child is not in socks to avoid slipping during our exercises. If you have hard, unforgiving floors, you may consider using yoga mats. All of our Sensory-Motor activities will be simple and safe, and generally should not require assistance from parents. Learners may benefit from having a water bottle nearby.
