The Tumbling Together Program for Preschool-Aged Children: Impact on Self-Regulation and Communication Skills

The goal of this project is to determine the impact of the Tumbling Together program on the self-regulation and communication skills of preschool-aged children. Most children who qualify for the Tumbling Together Program experience challenges in regards to communication and self-regulation. We know that right now most language intervention programs and speech therapy sessions for children of this age group focus on the development of verbal and non-verbal communication skills.However, we also know that some children who experience communication difficulties also have limitations related to self-regulation. Often, their inability to control their own behavior prevents them from participating in or benefitting from therapy sessions. We believe that a program designed to improve both communication and self-regulation skills would greatly enhance the ability of these children to succeed in classes at school and in the community.

This study will help us to determine if the Tumbling Together program, which is based on play, movement and social interaction, is effective at improving the self-regulation and communication skills of children who have communication and self-regulation challenges.
