lexicon Posted January 12, 2006 Report Share Posted January 12, 2006 **Not sure if this is the right forum for this question; since I am not a teacher, I didn't want to post in the teachers forum.** I was reading a post in the teachers forum where a teacher had a question regarding a student of hers who was hyperextended and let her weight drop into her heels. I was interested in the response given by Ms. Leigh as she said that the way a student stands, walks, and sits on a regular basis will greatly affect how she is able to maintain work in class. This is my dd's issue. She is regurlarly corrected for not getting forward enough, letting her weight drop into her heels, and for not pulling up out of her hips. She is also very hyperextended. Her director has said that it does make for a nice line, but it must be tamed or it can be a hinderence. So, I was wondering if Ms. Leigh, or anybody who is knowledgeable in this area, could elaborate on how to work on this issue 24/7, i.e. when standing, walking, sitting, etc. I know my dd gets the corrections in class, but anything she can be doing out of class in addition would help.
