This workshop provided an overview of how to use Profectum’s Foundational Capacities for Development (FCD’s™) as the framework for school programs for young children. How developmental programs differ from other educational models and how these programs integrate the use of other approaches when needed was demonstrated through video examples. This workshop illustrated the foundation of how schools have to change to integrate the understanding and respect of individual differences, development and emotional thinking, motor planning and sequencing, and visual spatial abilities. Clear examples of how learning requires both the mind and body working together were be shared. Key principles and strategies were reviewed as a toolbox for professionals working in educational settings.
