Description
This NEW 2 day course offers the school based therapist 4 researched routines utilizing a comprehensive group yoga program in an accessible format for children of all abilities. Get Ready to Learn was developed by yoga teacher and occupational therapist, Anne Buckley-Reen. Get Ready to Learn provides a daily therapeutic classroom routine designed to address problems with self regulation, attention, motor planning, auditory processing and motor performance. Developed for the NYC Department of Education and implemented in classrooms during the 2008-2009 school year, this program has been highly acclaimed by participating teachers, principals and administrators throughout the city. Teachers have documented positive changes in behaviors, with over 95 percent reporting that their students are consistently calmer and are more focued following the program. In addition, teachers and therapists have reported changes in language, motor and sensory processing and parents have reported positive changes in sleep, eating and transitions. Barbara Joseph, NYC School Administrator and GRTL program facilitator states: The impact of implementing the Get Ready to Learn Program across our entire district with students with significant disabilities ages 3-21 over the past year has had tremendous results in decreasing behaviors that intefere with learning and increasing appropriate behaviors to enhance each students ability to learn more effectively. Teachers, administrators, students and parents have reported significant changes in both the classroom environment as well as student performance. Parents are reporting that their children are reacting to their environment in ways they haven't demonstrated in the past. At the onset of the program we knew that the daily implementation of this movement program would have a positive impact on student progress but the data is reporting gains beyond our expectations. This program is designed for all populations including students with multiple handicaps, developmental disabilities, and autisitic spectrum disorders. The program has been tested with students ages 4 through high school in self contained classrooms throughout NYC and is now available to therapists around the country
