Your child is moving too much 

They can’t learn.  

They get up and down 

Move backwards and forwards.  

Bounce. 

Writhe

Kick

Scream. 

Why? 

Proprioceptive input

Vestibular input

Needed.   

We need to move sometimes to think

Movement, in the vestibular sense increases focus.  

So the movement is necessary for focus.   

Quite often when the child gets up from the table 

Is not because the child is done.   

They are regrouping.  

Focusing.  

Coming back to it.  

Like an artist continuing a painting.  

If your children aren’t learning because they need to move 

Then you’re not giving them what they need to move themselves to learn.  

We must let them paint.    

But first we must give them paint.
