The RBLM Program
Do you know children who are “bouncers”, “noodles”, or “shirt chewers”?
Does this behavior affect their ability to learn?
The Ready Bodies, Learning Minds approach can help!
Motor and sensory development provide the central nervous system with the ability to perform the many tasks necessary for academic achievement. If the reflexive-vestibular-proprioceptive-tactile systems are not functioning optimally, the student has a limited base of body knowledge and skills on which to build. Limited attention span, poor posture, difficulty sustaining equilibrium, poor coordination of sequential movements, restlessness, problems with spatial relationships, and slow academic progress are common signs of an immature neurological system.
Ready Bodies, Learning Minds (RBLM) is a comprehensive approach to understanding how sensory integration and motor control drives learning, and therefore the performance of our children. RBLM clarifies these powerful relationships, and then delivers powerful, hands-on tools for therapists, teachers and parents to assist ALL children.
The RBLM Motor Lab
The RBLM motor lab addresses the needs of all students in task-oriented circuit training, supported by consistent, foundational exercises, offering developmental support for the sensory and motor systems.
Athena Oden, P.T. and author of the Ready Bodies Learning Minds workshop and curriculum is widely known across the US for her down to earth approach to teaching, and the practical and powerful nature of the Ready Bodies, Learning Minds program. Whether it is a presentation to hundreds of therapists, or on the floor with children in a Ready Bodies Motor Lab, Athena is driven by the sincere desire to apply her knowledge to help those that choose to work with her.
