Hebrew Translation of the Challenge Me! TM Mobility Activity Cards designed by Amanda Elliott

On 19th May 2010 Jessica Kingsley Publisher confirmed that they have received the counter-signed contracts for Challenge Me! TM Mobility Cards to be translated in Hebrew.

Amanda Elliott the creator of the Challange Me!TM Mobility and Activity Crads is a senior conductor, one of the first graduates of the National Institute of Conductive Education UK, and the director of Conductive Education Support Services UK.

The set of beautifully illustrated full-colour mobility cards, together with a detailed instruction booklet, is a valuable tool for all professionals and parents facilitating the rehabilitation of children with neurological disorders and general developmental disabilities.

The activities address the development of mobility and coordination skills, while also promoting independence and self-esteem, using a fun approach that is motivating for children.

The cards were designed to give parents and professionals plenty of new ideas of tasks to practise at home/school to help improve mobility and all over motor skills based on Conductive Education.

Using the cards is fun and provide you with many useful ideas how to help children to improve essential skills. The cards also enable children to choose, focus, plan, empowering them to take charge in their own problem solving in a playful way.

Children can create their own activity regime which they can practise every day until they master the skills required, or they can choose ad-hoc challenges throughout the day which will build their abilities.
The cards were created in mind that everyone involved with child care, upbringing and education can easily be involved in helping children in a relaxed and joyful way.

In her resource review Julie Hughes of Down Syndrome Education International writes about the Challenge Me! Mobility Activity Cards.
"I'm always on the look-out for useful, practical activities that can be worked into everyday games – and that is just what I found in these cards.

The Challenge Me! Mobility Activity Cards - a set of useful, practical activities that can be worked into everyday games. They address mobility, balance coordination, spatial awareness, trunk control, transferring skills, gross motor skills, flexibility, adaptability, safety awareness, and independence. Practising these skills can also have a knock-on effect on self-esteem and confidence."
