Due to the structure of the programme, children with speech difficulties, learning problems and children who lack self-confidence or have some emotional difficulties do respond well to the programme.
In Edudram classes there is no right or wrong answer. Through group interaction, games and imaginative play, children are able to understand themselves better, explore and question their environment, and discover socially acceptable responses. The benefits of the Edudram programme are far-reaching and include: improved self-confidence, refined motor abilities, and enhanced language skills. For a full list of our benefits please visit the Benefits page on the site.
The typical Edudram lesson lasts 30 minutes. It begins with a fun warm-up exercise to help the children focus. The body of the lessons consists of role-play games, movement exercises, poetry, action songs and improvisations. The lessons are always concluded with a relaxation exercise.
