This represents a DevelopmentalModel of Vision. The outer circle represents the life activities that are important to your child: school, work, coordination/sports, play, relationships and success in life. A strong foundation is required upon which to build.
Imagination has no boundaries. The following activity taps the imagination–its one that kids of all ages can do–it can be done almost anywhere. The siller the responses, the better!
This activity emphasizes relaxing, breathing, quiet, safety and fun…great for kids…great for adults.
