In cooperation with the teacher, the classroom is evaluated with regard to the children who are experiencing difficulties. There may be children who are light or sound sensitive sitting near a blinking fluorescent light; a touch sensitive child sitting next to someone who has difficulty staying in their seat, and so on. The goal is to help provide a supportive environment which benefits students and teachers.
“Paula Lynam’s unique style with children is a joy to watch. She is able to involve children in movements that integrate their bodies and minds while they just think they are having fun! After only a short while with Paula, some of our children who have the most trouble calming down were able to find their peaceful center and were able to spend a productive day learning.” Bette Moore, Upper Chetco Charter School
