Playing games means training your mind for life. A game is never just a game.– Stephen Littleword
WHAT PSYCHOMOTORISM IS?
Psychomotricity is a discipline that focuses on the child and its development at both the motor and emotional-relational levels. By paying particular attention to the movement, body expression and playfulness of the child, the latter will be helped to acquire, enhance and strengthen their skills in a playful-creative context in which the child feels free to express himself in the best possible way in order to promote a harmonious psycho-physical development.
WHY MAKE PSYCHOMOTRICITY?
Psychomotricity is an important growth ground for the child both on a preventive and rehabilitative level.
In fact, in the educational-preventive field it is useful for all those children who are timid, insecure, in need of expression or who find it difficult to concentrate, as it improves self-confidence, the ability to express oneself and communicate and encourages freedom of thought and choice. This area is often addressed to schools, especially from nursery schools, through childhood to primary school.
From a therapeutic point of view, on the other hand, it helps the child to improve, develop and enhance motor, cognitive, emotional and relational skills in a highly stimulating playful-creative environment.
The therapy sessions can take place individually or in groups or together with parents for parent-child meetings, on a one- and two-weekly basis.
The neuropsychomotor intervention is located within a global care of the user and takes place in close collaboration with the work carried out by other rehabilitation professionals such as: speech therapist, psychologist, pedagogist and child neuropsychiatrist.
