‘How do I get my child moving better?’
The simple answer is to get them moving. Movement is important in the development of all children so they can master gross motor skill.
Gross motor skills are a specific set of skills that involve different body parts such as head, arms, hands, feet, legs and trunk. These skills are important because they are the "building blocks" to more complex skills that are required of children as they grow up into adulthood.
Most children develop these skills at school playtime or in a family environment with siblings or parents who encourage them to play games and spend time outside. But not all children have the same level of coordination or fitness or they may develop slower than their peers and have difficulty mastering certain movements. Consequently many children lose confidence and are put off participating in games and sport at an early age.
DMS allows kids to move in all directions in a fun & uncompetitive environment which allows them to work at their own pace. It is made up of simple movements that are quickly achieved to build confidence as they master each movement pattern and refine their gross motor skills. They then progress to multidirectional and more complex movements that will improve dynamic balance, coordination, rhythm and agility.
Significant improvements can be made to movement skills at any age by integrating DMS in to your family life for as little as 15 minutes a day, 2-3 times per week. The session plans are easy to follow, fun for all ages (including adults) and can be done in as little as 1.5 square meters.
