Aim Strong Sport

SAQ Special Educational Movement Award

SAQ Special Educational Movement Award

This is an interactive online course delivering real skills to all abilities. SAQ® SEM Training is a system of progressive exercise and instruction aimed at developing fundamental motor abilities, balance, co-ordination and ultimately complete control of body movement.
Learning how to perform fundamental motor skills, maintain a good posture, balance well, become co-ordinated & generally develop good body control, can be a real challenge for youngsters and children with learning difficulties. To maximise their potential and improve movement competence and self-confidence, teachers, coaches, trainers and parents and carers working with youngsters and children use a number of strategies.
Using SAQ® SEM Training, children whatever their ability, age, size, shape or aspiration can improve their fundamental movement ability and build the foundations on which a desire to participate in physical activity and sport can be achieved. Children will enjoy the variety, challenge and performance improvements that SAQ® SEM Training can provide. Interestingly there is now much evidence to show the impact of SAQ® SEM Training on children’s overall learning, handwriting development and mathematics skills, improvements in concentration and behaviour, as well as physical development. Success has been achieved by children with a variety of conditions including ADHD, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Downs Syndrome and Hemiplegia.
