Teaching Students with Dyspraxia at Our Houston School
Excelsior Academy Private School located in the Greater Houston Area has many established programs for children with dyspraxia. Our Rhythmic Writing approach has shown many positive results. This approach utilizes visual-motor skill lessons, which involves tracing a figure “8” on a chalkboard while the student verbalizes the directions he or she is tracing. With our therapy, students may develop neatness and elimination or lessening of attention issues. In the Rhythmic Writing approach, we also may lead a child into lessons on cursive writing. Research has shown that cursive writing stimulates brain synchronicity as there is a flow to the writing. Excelsior students have improved their self-esteem with cursive writing due to engaging in a positive linguistic activity. The teachers at Excelsior Academy understand how difficult dyspraxia is to deal with while doing school work, thus they are very patient and rely more on class discussions to better engage these students. Dyspraxia students may struggle with writing notes, therefore teachers do provide printed versions to them. Students with dyspraxia may improve their motor skills and eye-hand coordination through enrolling with our optional physical education elective i.e. Mixed Martials Arts. They are able to improve visual-motor integration by acquiring different grappling and combat moves. You can send us a written request to express interest in any electives.
