Movement, Drawing and Painting Exercises to Help Children with Difficulties in Writing, Reading and Arithmetic
Audrey E. McAllen
Audrey McAllen’s treasured resource has been revised and expanded — the result is a work of depth and insight which is even more practical and valuable than before.
This edition of The Extra Lesson gives careful and thorough instructions for the remedial drawing, painting, and movement exercises developed by McAllen. The difficulties students experience when struggling to learn writing, reading, and arithmetic are addressed with specific activities — the results? Students in both elementary and high school discover new relationships to themselves and the world, and find their path beyond the obstacles they face.
This latest edition of The Extra Lesson gives many more insights into the difficulties children are experiencing now. In it you are shown how to check for these disruptions, and how to remediate them, in far greater detail than before. The book has now increased in breadth and shows the depths from which this work has come. It is clear to me, having communicated with Audrey over the years, that no one else has come close to developing a program so universal in its application and yet holding such deep spiritual truths and insights.
