About the event

Mental health professional, Dr. Jeremiah Clemency agrees with the health benefits of double dutch. He says jumping rope is beneficial mostly for fluency. Fluency is part of motor praxis (meaning “planning”) and is basically the ability to keep a steady pace and rhythm. It can be seen in reading fluency, math fluency, and even fluency in independent working pace. Jumping rope is especially helpful for children with ADD/ADHD.

Fluency is an executive function of the brain, meaning that it is a high-level skill. Jumping rope helps with academic skills, timing, sensory processing and motor coordination.
