Montessori Therapy Training
MONTESSORI THERAPY TRAINING
Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the highly trained teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process. Children work in groups and individually to discover and explore knowledge of the world and to develop their maximum potential.
Montessori classrooms are beautifully crafted environments designed to meet the needs of children in a specific age range. Dr. Maria Montessori discovered that experiential learning in this type of classroom led to a deeper understanding of language, mathematics, science, music, social interactions and much more. Most Montessori classrooms are secular in nature, although the Montessori educational method can be integrated successfully into a faith-based program.
Every material in a Montessori classroom supports an aspect of child development, creating a match between the child's natural interests and the available activities. Children can learn through their own experience and at their own pace. They can respond at any moment to the natural curiosities that exist in all humans and build a solid foundation for life-long learning.
The module provides insights into the history of Montessori pedagogy, the development of the concept of the Montessori treatment today, the neuropsychological rationale for Montessori therapy, the teaching materials of Montessori pedagogy and their therapeutic use. The guidelines for the organization of classes are gained, as well as the understanding of the use and adaptation of the Montessori didactic materials in the correction of neurological disturbances.
