During November, daycare facility personnel of Agrícola El Porvenir company; a member of the Veggies From Mexico community, received a training to implement the Neuromotor and Reading Program for the children of farming workers in the field.
Psychomotor education, or neuromotor development is defined as the set of activities and exercises intended to promote an adequate and harmonious development of children’s psychomotor skills at each developmental stage.
It should be noted that in neuromotor development there are two broad categories:
Gross motor skills: refers to the control of more global muscular actions, such as crawling, standing up and walking.
Fine motor skills: involves using the smallest muscles in the body to reach, manipulate, plier movements, clap, veer, open, twist, doddle, etc.
The main benefits of neuromotor development are:
- Develop awareness of the body’s potentialities.
- Acquire better self-control.
- Establish neural connections.
- Extend the attention span.
- Achieve a greater efficiency and safety in movement.
