LIVE WEBINAR
Monday, February 8, 2021
8:00 am – 3:00 pm EST

*Early registration must be received 14 days prior to webinar (January 25, 2021). 

In this interactive webinar, which includes actual case examples and video teaching, we will experience more than ten Brain Gym®movement-based learning strategies and modify their difficulty along the continuum of students’ abilities and learning.  We will begin by focusing on students’ visual attention with emphasis on the core activation followed by spatial centering of the body.  These exercises promote increased body awareness, stability and organization and culminate in strategies to promote higher level thinking skills including writing, listening, communication and rhythm.  Since these traditional Brain Gym®exercises may at times be too challenging for some children, we will also practice at least four of the Building Block Activities (based on: Brain Gym® for children who have special needs) that form the underlying foundation for progression to more complex activities.  Additional areas of focus include the ocular-motor and visual skills that contribute to students’ success.Through the process of pre- and post-assessments, we will witness the benefits that these exercises provide, often in less than one minute, as students’ learn brain-body balance and greater visual efficiency.  This course will focus on the pediatric population, including lower functining children and those on the autism spectrum, and will be applicable to telehealth, school and home programming.
