If children can't learn the way we teach them, then we should teach them the way they learn
EIP : What is our Early Intervention Program?
This is the first time in Japan that such a professional Early Intervention Program is being offered to nurseries, kindergartens, schools & day care centers, around Japan. Our goal is to spread this program all around Japan so that it becomes a regular part of the school’s teaching system such as other regular subjects like P.E. Music, etc.
This program benefits not only children with developmental delays, disabilities, physical, social & communication problems BUT also any & all children because it helps to build on & strengthen the foundation of every child’s life skills & raises the child’s overall skills & capabilities for learning.
In this program we use many kind of therapies & programs including the ‘Move to Learn’ⓒ program [Australia] as the base & supplement it with ‘Cee Bee’s very own developed ‘ACE’ⓒ (Activity Communication & Exercise) program [Japan] & the ‘Me Moves’ⓒ Program (U.S.A.)
The ‘Move to Learn’ ⓒ(MTL) program (Australia), has been developed over the last 35 years & is being practiced in many schools, special needs establishments & homes in Australia. It has also spread to & is being practiced around the world including countries such as the U.K. the U.S.A., France, Switzerland, Poland, South Africa, Japan, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, & Thailand.
The ‘Activity, Communication & Exercise’ (ACEⓒ) program in Japan, has been developed over the last 12 years by Mr. Cecil Burton, Owner & Director of the Cee Bee Center.
The ‘Me Moves’ⓒ program (U.S.A.) is being practiced in many schools, establishments & homes in the U.S.A. & around the world. It has proved to be very effective in addressing the coordination of both sides of the brain & body, improving focus & concentration & producing a calming effect in a child through its movements.
This EIP program includes various fun-filled, graded step-by-step physical & mental exercises & activities for children that can be done with just one child or a small or large number of children, in large and small spaces, e.g. a gym, a classroom, a standard tatami room at home.
Move to Learnⓒ : What is the MTL Program?
MTL was developed by Barbara Pheloung, the founder of Move to Learnⓒ, who spent over 35 years working in the field of special education in Australia. She was an inspiration to many & through her work, she has inspired a growing number of teachers, therapists & parents around the world who have adopted her program. The results of these movements have helped & is helping thousands of special needs children around the world every day to develop both physically & mentally and perform better at school and in their lives.
As a special needs teacher, Barbara worked with children with LD – children who weren’t coping in the classroom, who weren’t able to learn effectively in the educational system as it was at the time, & Barbara wanted to know why they weren’t able to learn, & more importantly, how to help them learn.
Unable to find answers in the Australian educational system, she looked elsewhere – she networked with other teachers, Doctors, OT's, Physiotherapists, Behavioral Optometrists, Kinesiologists & other professionals working in the field of learning difficulties. She read the latest research from overseas, from the UK & the USA & she began putting some of these newly gathered ideas into effect in her own center which she set up with some of her associates.
The most important discovery was the impact of movement on a child's ability to learn. They discovered that movement was the key & not just any movement - but specific graded movements in a specific order.
