WHAT DOES THE IMPAROLE GRAPHOLOGIST IN THE EDUCATIONAL PATH OF GRAPHIC GESTURE? HOW DOES IT HELP CHILD AND PARENTS HELP?
Initially the graphologist will get to know parents and child. Through an initial conversation with parents and the analysis of the child’s graphic works, he will reconstruct his evolutionary path in graphomotor, scholastic and extracurricular fields. Subsequently, through the graphomotor evaluation that will directly involve the child in Imparole, will identify his graphomotor level with respect to age and any elements of immaturity or “graphic fatigue”. In the light of what has emerged and on the basis of specific family needs, he will set up a path of Education of the graphic gesture to enhance the graphomotor level. During this process, children, parents, specialists and teachers will be involved, who will work together for the success of the project.
WHEN IS THE GRAPHOLOGIST EDUCATOR OF GRAPHIC GESTURE USEFUL? WHO ARE THE CHILDREN WE HELP?
The path of graphic gesture education is advisable in the presence of elements of “graphomotor fatigue”, from the kindergarten to the end of secondary school.
At the base of immature graphic works (writings and/or drawings), we can often find a not complete acquisition of the prerequisites of writing: difficulty in fine traction (e. g. cutting, manipulating small objects…), spatial coordination, the management of graphic space, pregraphism activities (e. g. coloring, painting, drawing…), posture and grip and more.
In general, the educational path of graphic gesture helps each child to regain the pleasure of writing, mitigating the elements of fatigue in writing and related activities.
This “fatigue” in fact affects the child’s communication skills and the expression of his or her thoughts and personality. Precisely for this reason fatigue must be identified early, as it tends to worsen over time, also influencing overall school performance and determining feelings of disappointment, discouragement and demotivation that affect the child’s personality.
WHICH MATERIALS DO THE GRAPHOLOGIST USE?
Sheets, pencils and colours, blackboards, chalks and markers, pastels, music, rhythm and much more, based on the relationship that from time to time is established with the child.
HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK DOES THE GRAPHOLOGIST SEE THE CHILD?
The graphic gesture education course includes a weekly meeting with reinforcing and consolidating activities to be held at home (maximum 10 minutes per day).
HOW CAN THE PARENT HELP THE CHILD EVERY DAY?
The graphologist will share with parents the activities that will be proposed weekly to the child. The parent will be able to accompany and follow his or her child at a distance along this path of increasing autonomy.
HOW DOES THE GRAPHOLOGIST COOPERATE WITH THE TEACHER?
During the graphic gesture education course, meetings with teachers and parents are planned to share methods and objectives.
