Teacher and Parent Resources Through In-Services

Mindful Movement Inc. provides in-services to teachers, educational assistants and parents.  Our strategies are not secrets but tools to be shared with those who are interested in learning about them so that more children can be supported & assisted.

Sessions can vary from half-day in-services to after school sessions.

Topics may include:

  • fine motor development,
  • printing basics,
  • teaching handwriting,
  • sensory strategies,
  • non pencil/paper printing practice

The most requested in-services include:

Tools of the Trade

Come and learn the ‘who, what, when, why, where and how’ of the tools that Occupational Therapists often recommend. This in-service includes hands-on learning allowing participants to try out various tools such as adapted scissors, pencil grips and slant boards. Printing programs, modified writing paper, alternatives to paper/pencil practice and so much more will be discussed during this session.

Making Sense of our Senses-Strategies for Sensory Processing in the Classroom

This in-service will focus on how student performance can be affected learning by sensory stimuli (e.g. tactile, auditory, visual) in their environment.  Practical & functional sensory strategies will be discussed including examples of how to incorporate them for individuals or for classrooms. Participants are encouraged to try the sensory items available and learn how sensory input affects their own ability to attend.

Please contact us to book one of these In-services or to develop one that meets the needs of your target audience.

What Participants had to say about Mindful Movement Parent Teacher Workshops

A key change that I will make in my practice as a result of today’s session is:

Use more physical activities with my student (straw and cotton ball).
Try some fidget toys with my student.
Introduce more fidgets to my student to see what works for him.
Be more vocal on suggestions for classroom implementation.  Its key to find therapy that works for our children.
Use strategies for entire class, not just one or two students.
The strategies are easily integrated into the classroom.
