About Extra Lesson


Extra Lesson was developed by Audrey McAllen in England over 40 years ago.  Inspired by the developmental insights of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, it uses movement, drawing, and painting activities to help children with difficulties in reading, writing, and arithmetic. Some of the benefits recipients of this work may experience include enhanced coordination and spatial orientation, increased self confidence, and improved executive functioning.  It can also help to strengthen memory and help build a solid foundation for learning.  Extra Lesson can be used in both individual and group settings, and may be used with both children and adults.
