The moving child

(streaming video)


The Moving Child films aim to help support children in their physical, emotional, social and mental development by educating adults about the important role that dynamic movement plays in a child’s wellbeing.
The films show how that happens and what we need to be concerned about in children’s sensorimotor development.

Integrating approaches from diverse movement therapies, all three films share best practices to support children’s sensorimotor development, self-expression and naturally unfolding movement ability affecting their life.
