Marcia Lee’s presentation focuses on:
“Childhood “ADHD” Behavior – The Neuroscience Behind Using Movement to
Self-Regulate Instead of Medication”
Current neuroscientific research demonstrates that movement is one of the most effective means of stimulating and balancing the brain. The physiology of a child’s developing brain creates the opportunity for self-regulation through simple movements that balance both hemispheres of the brain without the use of medication, ameliorating childhood behaviors labeled “ADHD” (which are actually normal behaviors) in the classroom, at home, and on the go. Research also indicates that using movement before any learning activity improves learning and retention, creating an effective teaching strategy for the classroom.
