Description

In those with learning difficulties & disabilities the foundations for classroom learning have not been properly laid. Barbara Pheloung's Help Your Class to Learn brings together her practical experience in a form which teachers and busy parents will find useful and encouraging. It has a lot of information about setting up a perceptual movement program in a school, including suggestions of equipment, (much of which you could make yourself), & activities.
The book provides theoretical background to support the practical work and information for accessing additional services. With the cooperation of psychologist Robyn Taylor, Barbara also presents research showing the tangible results from her work with this program.

Review quote

The Hon. Dr Marlene Goldsmith

"For some children the door to learning is locked. It must be opened if they are to achieve their potential and acquire the skills necessary for our complex, high-technology society. But, because the problem has many causes, the challenge is finding the right key. From her many years of expertise and experience, Barbara Pheloung takes a holistic approach to learning difficulties, bringing together many specialist areas, and providing a number of keys. I hope there is one here for every child in need.

About Barbara Pheloung

Barbara Pheloung, B.A., Dip.Ed.(Spec.Ed.), was a resource teacher, born in Canada, who spent over 35 years specialising in working in the field of special education in Australia. In 1987 she set up a specialised treatment centre in Manly, Australia, known as 'The Beach House'. This was a private centre for those with Learning Difficulties and Hyperactivity in which Teachers, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and a Physical Education Teacher worked together sharing their expertise. Barbara's team proved that by working together, starting with the professional who met the most basic needs of a particular child, results could be quick and permanent. The success of The Beach House also demonstrated that similar centres could be set up in any community and with a minimum of financial support. Barbara went on to become a pioneer in the field of learning difficulties; authoring four books, producing two educational DVDs and working with thousands of students, parents and teachers across the world. She and her associates refined and perfected a sequential movement program that can be done with an individual, a small group or with a whole class and requires little in terms of training or equipment. The movement sequences seem to act as a 'neurological kick-start', helping children to reach learning readiness and removing the obstacles that had blocked them in the past. In 2004 Barbara was nominated for Australian of the Year.
