I love the treasure hunt idea- I have done it for math; it would be so easy to adjust for blands and reading. Thanks! I do have trampolines as well and that is another great option! Keep the ideas coming...

The child is limited verbal but can not clearly articulate what it is that makes her not want to go. She does seem to be triggered by loud noises though.

Recently we had a participant in the workshop describe an issue and I am wondering if we have some advice or experience that might help. A child is using the restroom at home perfectly fine, however when asked to use a public restroom refuses to go. This child is about to start school after summer break and parents and caretakers are concerned she won't be ready to do so because if this issue. What can they do?

Unbelievable pictures! What a guy!!!

MM can be used with every child, and they will all benefit from it. I initially started using the various tools and the philosophy in my regular ed classroom to allow for more effective integration, but I quickly noticed my academic low achieving student benefit from it, and even my high achievers really starting to enjoy school more and improving scores.
I have started to use a therapy dog on a frequent basis, and it really support emotional well being especially at an age (10,11) where the kiddos often struggle. In addition we have a tortoise that students read to, connect to, and simply enjoy a lot- so baseline, YES it is used with every child and highly effective for learning and well- being!

I actually started by promoting the lessons in my classroom and inviting people in to watch- then I offered the training to our superintendent for a small group of paras.
