The establishment of the Finnish Association of Psychomotricity in 1994 has accelerated the spread of psychomotricity. The association works towards the development and promotion of psychomotricity in the fields of rehabilitation and education. Such means include cooperation with different educational institutions and the planning of specialized programs with universities of applied sciences. The association works to enhance the research and production of psychomotor materials. For example, Renate Zimmer’s “Handbuch der Bewegungserziehund” was translated into Finnish, and as of this writing her “Handbuch der Psychomotorik” is in preparation. Additionally, courses and seminars of psychomotricity are offered. The association joined the European Forum of Psychomotricity in 1997.
