Hey all, I did a course with my childrens centre a few months back and it was all about schemas and how they are a huge part of a childs development. I noticed there are no posts on this subject so I was hoping that my knowledge can help anyone with 'my child wont stop doing this' problems and understanding what a schema is.......

A schema is a repeated action, we are born with them, they link directly to how the young brain develops and grows and are a vitally important element in a childs development and learning. Children need to practice repeatedly what they know and can do so that whats known becomes better known. They help us to think and as we get older, our schemas dont go away, they just get more sophisticated.....

Now when I did this course, I was intrigued as we had a few ladies with what we thought was cleaning OCD but turns out it was a schema!!! lol.....
the schema was 'I clean alot' and OCD is 'its clean but im not happy till I bleached 10 times'


I can list all the ins and outs but I would be here all day but basically when you tell your toddler to stop jumpimg up and down on the bed, its not that they want to be a pain, they are exploring up and down.....this is known as a trajectory schema and the same as an adult swinging their leg back and forth under a chair.
An enveloping schema would be when your child dresses up in your clothes or likes to wrap items up or fill up bags.

im curious to know if any of you are reading this thinking the same as I did when I did the course, watching your child go through stages is really interesting.......feel free to post your findings and I will be happy to post more schema stages.....

I probably have loads too - either that or Autism hehehehe. People say the more you work with Autism, the more you develop it - well after 7 years working as a SEN teacher I reckon I could get a diagnosis now hehehehe
