Training / Workshops
Developmental Dance Movement®
MovementWorks provides bespoke training in DDM® and offers an In-House Training Programme that can either form part of a programme of classes for the staff attending the sessions to gain a further understanding and support the children or we can provide full training with certification for staff to host your own sessions.
Please contact us for further details.
Our highly acclaimed CPD has seen MovementWorks invited to present both nationally and internationally including at Google HQ for TeachMeet, the TES SEN Show, the National Autistic Society International Congress and the Expressive Arts Summit in New York; you can see a more extensive list at the bottom of this page in the section ‘Who we have worked with’
We’ve been awarded a prestigious featured space at the National Autism Shows in London, Birmingham and Manchester highlighting our level of expertise in this field, which is also reflected in our consultancy work for other dance organisations including The Royal Ballet School and Royal Academy of Dance.
What to expect
MovementWorks professional development seminars and workshops provide both a theoretical background and practical exploration of the links between movement, development and learning. Suitable for teachers, SENCOs, teaching assistants, and all early years and SEN&D practitioners responsible for children's development and learning.
These seminars encompass a number of perspectives from the scientific underpinning of physical development to informing how certain physical markers and behaviours can indicate developmental delay, to effective ways to integrate dance and movement activities with students who have a variety of specific needs including ASD, SLD and PMLD.
They aim to develop a deeper understanding and practical application of this knowledge which is relevant to observation of children engaged in a MovementWorks programme and a wider P.E context.
This knowledge supports children's learning in a way that is enjoyable and links to other areas of the curriculum.
MovementWorks has been commissioned to deliver CPD training for London Borough Councils, NHS professionals, Modern Montessori National regions and National and International Professional Conferences. We also offer training in association with the CPD group.
