Did you know that the position in which a person finds him or herself will influence the quality of the work they perform? It’s true! And, when we are talking about very young children, positioning becomes even more important. This workshop will begin with a brief overview of the contemporary positioning practices which are having a dramatic influence on a young child’s overall development. After learning some important concepts and principles related to movement and positioning, participants will have opportunities to brain storm practical applications of the information provided in the home as well as a variety of other settings in which young children find themselves. Finally, the ways in which materials from home can be transformed into positioning devices will also be included.
