Balanced and Barefoot

Amazing resource for parents or teachers interested in supporting children’s physical development. Angela Hanscom packed Balanced and Barefoot with research into the importance of movement for all aspects of learning and development. I found it especially interesting Hanscom’s evaluation of the research into sensory processing disorders and the possibilities to support children of differing needs. This research will change the way you see the world.

Key Points:

  • Movement is a biological need, affecting everything
  • Children aren’t getting what they need
  • Structurally we need to make societal changes
