A little-known cause of struggles in school
from By: Janet B. Reyes
From Oct. 27:
Many educators and parents are unaware of one potential reason some students perform poorly or inconsistently in school: underlying problems with perceptual-motor integration. This system relates to sensory intake and processing, awareness of body position and differences in muscle tension. Deficits in these processes may cause behavioral and learning issues that are mistaken for ADHD or learning disabilities. Perceptual-motor development occurs in sequence as a child matures.
