Movement is fundamental to learning. Without movement, young people will fail to develop a whole range of skills, and find it much more difficult to learn and concentrate, especially if they have additional needs.

Understanding the role that movement plays in learning and how to support learners who have additional needs is vital in being able to create the best conditions needed for learning to take place.

Learning Through Movement has been produced by LGfL in partnership with a Senior Paediatric OT and other expert advisors. The aim of the resource is to provide an overview and starting point for classroom practitioners.

The resource has been structured into the following modules which staff can dip in and out of or can view sequentially depending on the user’s preference.

Specific and complex difficulties will require a referral, assessment and personalised advice.
