Incorporating activities and exercises to develop eye movement helps struggling students with reading comprehension. The primary goal of Brains-in-Motion is to give educators a variety of teaching strategies can engage students in the reading process by incorporating movement and activities.

MATH RTI: A MOVEMENT APPROACH TO INTERVENTION: 3-HOUR

Today, research supports that movement and cognition are powerfully connected. Brains-in-Motion presents research based activities and exercises that are developmentally appropriate, helping the student master math concepts while simultaneously helping student feel energized, focused, and prepared to learn.

Bal-A-Vis-X WORKSHOP: (16-HOUR TRAINING)

Balance / Auditory / Vision /eXercise – has more than 300 exercises. It enables the mind-body system to experience the symmetrical flow of a pendulum. It engenders focus. In group settings the exercises demand cooperation, promote self-challenge, and fosters peer teaching.

Bal-A-Vis-X is not a game nor sport, and is not designed for athletes or performers. It is a carefully modulated system of exercises that can become increasingly difficult OR increasingly simplified / modified for those with the most severe special needs. Often exercises are done while standing on a Bal-A-Vis-X Brain Buddy Balance Board.

Learning to Move, Moving to Learn

Play becomes purposeful when a child’s potential for learning is enhanced. Research shows that learning through play teaches children how to preserve, control attention, and control emotions which are key elements to learning readiness. Understanding of the appropriate milestones and expectations is vital for young students and classroom success. Learning to Move, Moving to Learn is designed to provide a research-based overview of the neuroscience to learning, followed by active participation of activities that focus on infantile reflexes, balance, coordination, rhythm and various visual skills.

Let us set up a workshop for your school district or parent group.
