WES Students Enjoy Minds in Motion!
Posted on 09/07/2018
Our Elementary Students are enjoying Minds in Motion! WES wants to thank our School Social Worker, Natalie Werner, for all the hard work she has done getting funding for the program and all the hard work she continues to do to make it successful. 

Winslow Elementary received a grant for Minds in Motion that Mrs. Werner applied for. The grant was awarded through the Pike County Community Foundation Marilyn J. Klenck Fund for Education and Literacy Grant Program. Winslow Elementary was awarded $2500 to fund the Minds in Motion maze, as well as getting three staff members trained. 

Minds in Motion is a  research-validated program that is designed to stimulate a child’s VISUAL processing, AUDITORY processing, as well as their MOTOR skills. The program is a revolutionary way to accelerate a child's potential for academic, athletic, and social success. The outcome is a better integrated and balanced child who will perform better in school and at home. 

Minds in Motion is a revolutionary way to accelerate a child's potential for academic, athletic, and social success.  The program is comprised of 15 stations, which incorporate a variety of exercises designed to stimulate a child's visual processing, auditory processing, and motor skills.  This evidence-based program creates many positive outcomes, including a better-integrated and balanced child that will perform better in school and at home. 

Minds in Motion uses balance as the central component to address sensory integration disorders that cause learning problems due to a decrease in activities that stimulate the brain. By participating in the Minds in Motions activities regularly for 15 minutes, all of those systems will be strengthened.  The more fine-tuned the sensory and motor systems are, the easier it is for children to learn and they are able to learn more.
