ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Northern Kentucky University
This study resulted from monitoring and observing the engagement of five second grade students both before and after participating in a sensory integration movement process known as "MINDS-In-Motion", MAZE. The purpose of this action research study was to explore student engagement and purposeful movement of students utilizing "MINDS-In-Motion", MAZE activities throughout the general education school day. Student engagement was monitored using a Conversation, Help, Activity, Movement, Participation (CHAMPS) protocol, (Garrison, Howard & Sprick, 1988) and checklists through observation and field notes. The overall pre and post discoveries included four of the five students showing improvement in the area of behavioral engagement, and all five students increased in both cognitive and emotional engagement. As a result, the results point to the need for further studies involving the use of sensory integration movement processes with students with academic and behavioral deficiencies who do not receive special education services.
