Public Lecture – “Could do Better”

Public Lecture

“Could do Better”

Is your child bright but underachieving in the classroom?

Sally Goddard Blythe MSc (Psych), author and specialist in child development will explain: why some children fail to reach expectations; how to recognise signs of neuromotor immaturity, visual and auditory processing difficulties and what can be done to help

A growing body of evidence suggests that there is a rise in the number of children starting school with immature motor skills, which act as barriers to learning and undermine performance in the classroom.

Sally Goddard Blythe world renowned child development expert and author of a number of books on development and learning including:  Attention, Balance and Coordination – the A,B,C of Learning Success, Raising Happy Healthy Children and The Well Balanced Child, will explain how physical development supports learning, emotional functioning and behaviour and how immature neuromotor skills, visual and auditory processing difficulties can be common features in dyslexia, dyspraxia, attention deficit disorder, under-achievement and behavioural problems.

The lecture will cover:

  • Signs and symptoms of immature motor skills
  • Links to education and behaviour
  • Why some children slip through the net of professional services
  • What can be done to help

The lecture is suitable for:

  • Parents
  • Teachers
  • Health professionals
  • Psychologists

Sally Goddard Blythe is Director of The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology (INPP) in Chester, which has pioneered research and methodology in assessing children’s neuromotor skills and developing effective remedial programmes.

Sally is the author of many books and numerous articles on the relationship between child development and learning.  She has lectured extensively around the world including to working groups on child well-being at the European Parliament and Westminster.

Published Today: Raising Happy Healthy Children. Why Mothering Matters

Published today, Raising Happy Health Children.  Why Mothering Matters.

Raising Happy Healthy Children is a fully-updated second edition of What Children and Babies Really Need. With new information carefully added, this book examines the crucial early years from a child’s perspective. It draws on the latest scientific research to show how the first few years determine the way children develop, body and mind, for the rest of their lives.

The keys to this development are parents, and in particular mothers. A society which really cares for its children, says Sally Goddard Blythe, values parents and makes it possible for them to spend time and be actively involved with their children for at least the first two years of life. Raising Happy Healthy Children presents convincing research to show how a baby’s relationship with its mother has a lasting, deep impact. Recent social changes, such as delayed motherhood, juggling of work/life balance, limited uptake of breastfeeding, and use of parent-substitute baby
equipment and electronic devices, are interfering with key developmental milestones that are essential for wellbeing in later life. Sally Goddard Blythe says: ‘We need a society that gives children their parents, and most of all values motherhood in the early years.’

  • Latest research about pre-conceptual, baby and child development.
  • Explains how social changes have unleashed a crisis in the experience of childhood.
  • Explores the crucial early years and child development from the child’s perspective.
  • Shows how parents can give their child the best start in life.
  • Values motherhood.
