    This 32-hour experiential course provides an in-depth study of how to use Brain Gym® with children and adults, with specific adaptations for those who have special needs.

    In this course students learn:
    • 26 Brain Gym® movements and modifications for special cases
    • 7 Building Block Activities which support integration of the nervous system
    • The 5-step Balance Process which targets goals for learning and performance
    • The principles of Educational Kinesiology
    • How to assess the needs of an individual
    • How to develop a Brain Gym® program to meet those needs
    • How to evaluate the effectiveness of the program
    • How to modify for best results

    Students will leave the course with new skills that optimize learning and performance in all areas of life. And they will find that these tools are immediately applicable in home, school and therapeutic settings.
