Perceptual Motor Programme (PMP) Is a programme designed to help children in their early years of schooling to better cope with the demands of classroom learning. It concentrates heavily on perceptions and language but also aims to develop memory, hand/ eye coordination, spatial awareness, body rhythm and balance. It also improves fitness and confidence. All of these attributes are needed in the formal setting of the classroom. Children are often required to sit still on the mat, a high form of balance, to track words across a page, to follow a set of instructions etc. PMP aims to give the children the skills they need for this and more.
