Kinderkinetics

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Areas addressed during the sessions:

 

  • Fundamental movement skill development
  • Gross motor developmental delays
  • Perceptual motor skills
  • Motor milestone achievement
  • Visual functioning
  • Sport-specific skill development
  • Improvement of physical fitness
  • Achieving optimal body composition
  • Gross motor activities that underlie cognitive and academic achievement
  • Health promotion

Children who can benefit

 

  • Children with gross motor deficits
  • Children with postural deficits which causes a barrier in sport or academic performance
  • Children with motor planning deficits which causes a barrier in sport or academic performance
  • Children who are overweight or obese
  • Children with special needs or disabilities

Programmes:

 

Program for infants 0 – 24 months of age

This program focuses on the sensory-motor development of a baby from a stimulation point of view. This program also has a preventative, improving and rehabilitative nature. Attention is also given towards the milestone development of a baby. Should an infant be delayed in his/her development, the correct intervention can be followed in order to ensure optimal motor development, thus helping a baby to reach his/her full potential.

 

Program for Pre-School children 2 – 7 years of age

This program is a fun-filled perceptual-motor developmental programme that is specifically taught to meet the various aspects of gross motor development such as balance, body awareness, spatial orientation, coordination, rhythm and timing. This program is also designed towards the neuro-motoric development of the child, and aims to prevent educational implications from a motor point of view.

 

Sport Development program for children 8 – 12 years of age

This program is a sport development program where different sport skills are taught in a fun and exciting manner. It also focuses on fitness and ensures that the basic fundamental skills underlying the various sporting skills are established before moving on to specializing in a specific sport.

 

Remedial and Adapted program for children 0 – 13 years of age

This programme is specially designed and adapted to meet the unique needs of a child from a gross motor as well as a neuro-motor point of view. In this program, each child receives an in-depth assessment. This helps the Kinderkineticist to form a clear picture of the child’s development and aids in helping to identify possible underlying problems as to why a child may battle with his/her development. Sessions are then planned according to well-researched principles and can be presented once or twice a week.

Children with obesity, asthma, allergies and diabetes as well as children experiencing co-morbid disorders such as autism, DCD, ADHD or other neuro-motor based learning problems, will benefit from this program. Kinderkineticists are working in conjunction with other professionals to ensure the optimal development of the child.

 

DMI THERAPY

 

Dynamic Movement Intervention Therapy

DMI serves as a therapeutic approach dedicated to addressing motor delays in children. Its primary focus lies in enhancing automatic postural responses and guiding youngsters toward crucial developmental milestones. The goal of DMI is to provoke a specified active motor response from the child in response to defined dynamic exercises prescribed by the therapist. DMI stimulates neuroplasticity to facilitate new neuronal connections and development of motor milestones.
