What Moves Me to Act. I.
In this speech, the author expresses concern for the child who does not seem able to perform. The author states that there is an orderly acquisition of sensations, skills, and/or patterns that we move through in the process of learning, and that the acquisition of more advanced skills is predicted on the assumption that earlier sensations, skills, and/or patterns have been acquired. The author continues that responsibility for therapy in the area of movement for remediation, and the development of corresponding motor activities, should lie with physical educators. He contends that once physical educators realize what role physical education should play in perceptual-motor development, they need to more fully explain it to parents and other professionals. He also feels that perceptual-motor programs should be a part of every public school education program, and that help should be provided for parents of children who have learning problems related to perceptual-motor development.
