A Musical Approach to Motor-Sensory Training.
deVincentis, Sarah; Johnson, Linda
A motor-sensory training program was established to meet developmental motor needs of behaviorally disordered children (6 to 8 years old). Most of the children had motor deficiencies, as well as diagnosed learning disabilities, and some children were entered in the program not because of motor deficiencies but because of their extreme motor response to environmental stimulation. Music was used to structure the program and verbal cues were minimal. Ss have shown significant improvement in motor skills as well as increased development in inner control systems due to the relaxation techniques taught and the music input. (Author/SBH)
