Handy guide to some of the most popular classroom-usable Brain Gym movements.
Brain Gym, one of the first major movement-based treatment programs for sensory processing difficulties (SPD) and still one of the most frequently used and imitated by spin-off versions, is ideal for use in any classroom. Since Brain Gym was first developed in the 1990's, a massive amount of data has been collected about its effects on students with special needs as well as neurotypical students. They include improvements in muscle coordination, self-calming, mental alertness, creativity, self-control, and reading scores. This book enables any teacher, parent, or therapist to start immediately using the most popular and effective exercises.
