The CLIME® Program - (Classroom Learning to Improve Motor Efficiency)

The CLIME® Program
Did you know that integrating motor activities into the classroom and home environment can be a tremendous help in reading, writing, attention, and memory? Movement activates the brain and its processes for learning. Students who learn to develop specific motor movements can incorporate such skills into successful participation in school activities. The CLIME® Program's multi-sensory approach to learning is particularly helpful for students, kindergarten through sixth grade and those with Attention Deficit Disorder or learning disabilities.
