Use it or Lose it! Maintaining School Skills Over the Summer

02/20/2017 09:45AM, Published by Hood Magazine, Categories: Education, In Print, Today, Schools




By Megan Anderson, LifeScape




Research shows that one month of overall learning is lost after summer vacation and it can take up to two months to relearn the same information. Participating in summer therapy can decrease learning loss and increase skill development.


Increased availability: Summer allows for increased time to tackle those complex skills known to take more time and attention. Skill development can occur in a less restrictive environment without the added demands and time constraints of school. Less time constraints allows for increased therapy appointments and one-on one attention from therapist and parent. Children often spend more time at home during the summer, providing more opportunities to work on self-care skills such as dressing, brushing teeth and shoe tying.  


Increased opportunities for physical activities: Summer provides opportunities to use the outdoors to practice physicals skill such as bike riding, swimming and jumping rope. Therapy provides opportunities to work on coordinating movement and increasing comfort with the task to increase performance. Children who are able to keep up with peers during physical activity will increase peer interaction and opportunities for socialization.


Increased structure, routines and roles: Summer therapy keeps the brain and body active and decreases risk of sedentary habits forming. A therapist can help create a home schedule that provides children opportunities to be accountable and engage in valuable activities. Establishing roles and forming positive habits allows children to feel like a productive member of the family.

Increased school readiness: Summer learning is a great time to maintain skills, improve skills and prevent skill loss. Therapy can assist with fine motor, gross motor, problem solving, planning and many more skills essential to being a productive student.
If you feel like your child could use assistance in any of these areas, contact your physician to see if therapy is recommended.
