What is EDUCATIONAL KINESIOLOGY?



Developmental experts have know for some time that movement enhance learning.

In the 70s,  Dr.Paul Dennison, an Educational from the US, who pioneered reading clinics using movement and vision training,  developed this programme.


It was named one of the top two innovative methods for taking learning to the next level by a White House Committee.

 

it is now used in over 80 countries worldwide and is part of a wider educational

programme known as “Educational Kinesiology”.


Adults and children of all physical, social and learning abilities and special needs,

use Brain Gym® 101, in schools, working places, and more.



How does it work?



“Movement grows the Brain”



Brain plasticity is now well accepted.

All our movements and thoughts affect brain function.

Physical movement is a very important key to enable those developments to occur at any age.


The Educational Kinesiology processes offers a powerful physical and psychological model for change and development.


For those with learning difficulties it works by helping along the natural developmental processes through specific, conscious movements.

For others, it can be a powerful support tool in times of stress by using conscious movement as the catalyst to whole brain function.



Who is it for?


In different ways it is for anyone who is seeking to function at a higher level in their daily life.


It is used in school and at home to help children with learning difficulties develop basic skills, concentration and improve behavior. Many case studies and action research projects show improvements in reading, memory, writing, comprehension, listening skills amongst others.


In the workplace and at home it can be used by anyone to help them work towards their individual goals in a positive way minimizing the impact of stress.


Many schools in the UK and internationally already use on a regular basis Educational kinesiology as a ‘readiness for learning’ program with all their children, and with children and adults, on the special needs register can help them to develop the basic skills needed to access the curriculum.
