The Well Balanced Child
Movement and Early Learning
Sally Goddard Blythe

Fully revised second edition with substantial new material and comprehensive index.

The Well Balanced Child is a thought-provoking and helpful book that makes a vital contribution to understanding child development. I would recommend it to all parents, teachers, and child healthcare professionals.
                              - Ewout Van-Manen, Waldorf educator, Michael Hall School, UK

Children of today are more sedentary than any previous generation. Traditional outdoor games - running and jumping, hopscotch, tree climbing, playing on playground equipment, are being abandoned in favor of television, computers, and electronic games. As a result, there is unprecedented concern over the rising levels of childhood obesity and even heart disease. Deprived of the crucial opportunities for exercising the body and the senses that prepare the brain for learning in the early years, many children are literally unfit to begin the learning process.

The Well Balanced Child is a passionate manifesto for a whole-body approach to learning, which integrates the brain, senses, movement, and play.
This practical, inspiring book will enable parents and educators to help children attain their full potential

Sally Goddard Blythe is director of The Institute for Neuro-Physiological Psychology, which researches the effects of neurological dysfunction in specific learning difficulties, and devises effective remedial programs. She is the author of Reflexes Learning and Behaviour as well as numerous professional papers and articles.
