Brain training resources for the whole family
Movement is essential to learning.
Movement integrates and anchors new information into our neural networks. Every
time we move in an organized manner, full brain activation and
integration occurs, and the door to learning opens.
Movement based learning programs such as are an
integral part of our Midbrain Activation Programs . These activities involve simple
developmental movements and use equipment such as beanbags, racquetballs and a
balance board. The exercises can be adapted for everyone and are a lot of fun!
I continue to be amazed by the benefits of integrating
these activities and exercises into our programs. Through movement
based learning we are able to address developmental areas of focus such as :
- the vestibular system,
retained primitive reflexes.
