The Maze of Learning:
Developing Motor Skills
Fit 2 Learn is a social enterprise company that combines research and advice to all people on how they can achieve their potential through good control of their own basic physiology. We believe that everyone can move beyond coping strategies and use all their senses and motor skills in a coherent, efficient manner to learn and to live calmly. Once people have achieved motor sensory integration it is important that they maintain those skills for life to maximise their health and all round well-being.
Fit 2 Learn has expertise in the areas of: motor skills; sound processing skills, using Tomatis sound therapy; visual skills; and how these skills inter-relate through games, puzzles and physical activities. Further, how trauma of all kinds can impact on skills development.
