Touchstones is a series of lessons, taking each of the elements from the fundamental properties of movement and looking at it in more depth. These lessons are available online for you to do on your own or in a study group. Do the lessons, integrate them into your study and work, and join us in our online discussion to deepen your understanding! Attention to movement in the context of human development involves so much more than locomotion or “milestones”. Underneath what many of us would look towards when we think of development, are fundamental moving relationships that make these things possible and meaningful. Our study and learning in this Touchstones series will focus on the movements of our earliest life—before birth and through very early infancy. We will explore the primary processes each one of us must utilize as living, moving entities to find our way with ourselves in our world. These “touchstone” ATMs have been selected because they point powerfully to an essential movement and function on which action and skill are built. You will be asked to examine your understanding, assumptions, concepts, considerations that arise in relation to movement and development. As we look at these touchstone lessons, attention will continue to be directed toward the fundamental movement that underlies the emergence of motor control. * Please note that each ATM is just one of many that can emphasize the experience of a chosen theme.
