Program Description

There are 26 original "Brain Gym" movements, sometimes abbreviated as the 26 that recall the movements naturally done during the first years of life when learning to coordinate the eyes, ears, hands, and whole body.

The twenty-six activities, along with a memory program for “learning through movement” were developed by educator and reading specialist Paul E. Dennison and his wife and colleague, Gail E. Dennison who say that the interdependence of movement, cognition, and applied learning is the basis of their work.

"Brain Gym" can show possible improvement in the areas of:

    * Concentration and Focus
    * Memory loss prevention
    * Academics: reading, writing, math, test taking
    * Physical coordination, mobility and balance to reduce falls
    * Hearing and Vision
    * Relationships
    * Self-responsibility
    * Organization skills
    * Attitude
