CoordiKids programs are based on evidence and extensive research studies from many different disciplines.
The knowledge gained from studying evidence based research was combined with decades of experience in using the exercises and movements.
The result: Programs for children to improve their skills and to ensure successful participation in all aspects of their lives.
