Was Sesame Street Right? Getting the Ears, the Body and the Mind Work Together
Friendly neighbors there
That's where we meet
Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street?
Maybe Sesame Street had it right? Not that you can just park your child in front of a TV set, but having different learning styles reinforce each other. I found this nice diagram from the APDUK.org web site describing how Hearing, Motor Skills and Executive Function work together. This explains how treatment for auditory problems ripples through and affects motor skills and executive function. My hunch is that there would be similar pathways for integrating vision, balance or smell with motor skills and executive function.
