Perfect for busy families…and children of any age! These simple, yet proven exercises will transform your child’s abilities, boosting their confidence and self esteem!”

Sensory Motor Skills are products of our central nervous system. Specifically they are the relationship between our sensory skills (seeing, hearing, and touching) and motor skills (muscles and their movement).

 Ideally, our motor skills take the information our senses receive and process it into an appropriate action. These skills are very important in childhood development.

To explain it simply, when someone has poor Sensory Motor Skills they misinterpret or have a hard time connecting everyday sensory information with the motor skills required. This may lead to them feeling overwhelmed, anxious, or exhibiting strong emotional behaviours (sometimes described as ‘melt downs’).

First of all it’s important to know you cannot cause Sensory Motor Skills problems. Many parents question, “What did I do wrong when my child was younger?” And the answer is: you did nothing wrong.

It’s not uncommon for children to experience Sensory Motor Skills problems. In fact, Sensory Processing Disorder (the umbrella that Sensory Motor Skills problems fall under) is a complex neurological condition that affects 1 in 20 children. 

Problems with Sensory Motor Skills occur when the brain and central nervous system have breakdowns in transmitting messages throughout the body.

Occupational therapy produces truly fantastic results and many parents bring their children to weekly visits with their practitioner (which the kids love because they have so much fun doing the activities!).

However stretched finances and hectic schedules can be a concern for families. That’s why the CoordiKids program is the ideal solution, because it’s done at home with common household items. Plus at only 15 minutes a day…

We’ve taken the exercises we use in therapy, adapted them for the home environment, and packaged them into fun, easy to follow instructional videos.

Each fortnight you receive a new exercise (together with equipment list, progress checklist, tips and hints).

We recommend you do the exercise for five consecutive days, then give your child two days rest to give their brain the opportunity to “cement” the new structures. Repeat the activity again for five days, rest another two and then the next activity will arrive! 

Note: The whole family can enjoy these exercises! You may need to guide or help your child with some of the exercises. This in turn encourages a good relationship, allows you to have fun together, and helps you gain a better understanding of your child’s underlying issues.
