Sally Goddard Blythe is Director of the Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology. She researches the relationship between physical development and learning. Her remedial programmes help transform childrens learning through movement.
Professor Michael Lazarev is Head of the Children's Rehabilitatory Medicine Centre in Moscow. He researches how music helps children's health and development.
The big connection to take home from this introduction to how music and movement assist brain development is - music developed from movement, because music is rhythm, drum beats... movement. A highly recommended read for practitioners in the early years, and parents, who want to understand these important connections, and are interested in how to foster this at home or in the early years setting.-- Itsallaboutstories.blog * https://itsallaboutstories.blogspot.com/2020/02/movement-your-childs-first-language-and.html *
