This Webinar will explore findings from Sinéad’s doctoral thesis in the area of motor development and emergent handwriting development of junior infant children. Sinéad will present findings from her research relating to differences in motor development between children attending DEIS and non-DEIS schools. These findings have significant implications for how children’s needs are addressed in the classroom in relation to motor development. This webinar will explore a ‘whole body approach’ to handwriting using a sensorimotor handwriting programme that was trialled by the participating teachers in Sinéad’s research study. In particular, the webinar will highlight elements of the programme that were perceived as effective by teachers, and elements of the programme that created challenges within a mainstream class environment.
Sinéad McCauley Lambe is a lecturer in education at Marino Institute of Education specialising in Early Childhood Education. Prior to joining MIE, Sinéad taught for eleven years in St. Vincent’s Infant Boys’ school in North William Street. Here, Sinéad moved into resource teaching and worked with children with ASD and those experiencing a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties. It was this work that ignited Sinéad’s interest in educational disadvantage, motor development and early intervention. Sinéad completed a Masters Educational Disadvantage in DCU and has recently completed her PhD research there also. Her research interests include infant motor development and emergent handwriting development. She strongly believes in the power of puppets and playful learning experiences to engage those learners who need us the most.
