What the Research Shows

 
  • 40 % of Rockford youth meet few or no expectations for fine and gross motor skills which include having enough energy for the school day and the appropriate physical development to perform necessary daily tasks.

  • More than two thirds of children reported at least 1 traumatic event by age 16.  

  • 35% of Rockford youth lack appropriate emotional maturity which contribute impulsivity, restlessness, inattentiveness, and distractibility.
