Switching On with the Three Dimensions
Children who have special needs “switch off” more frequently than the average child.
Children who have special needs “switch off” more frequently than the average child. Perhaps the stress from neurological damage or simply a more sensitive nervous system creates a need for movements, such as Movement-Based Learning’s (MBL) Building Blocks and Brain Gym, as well as skills of coordination. The intention behind these movements are to stimulate the brain so that the child has equal access to all dimensions of the brain.
MBL / Brain Gym movements stimulate the brain so that the child has equal access to all dimensions of the brain.
The Brain Gym activities address three specific dimensions of physical movement that correlate with three areas of the brain. Each dimension is described by a key word or function and by viewing postural and behavioral correlates. This means that by observing the child’s behavior or how he/she holds his/her body in space, we are lead to the appropriate MBL / Brain Gym movements and activities. Other information to apply Movement Based Learning’s Building Blocks can be gathered by observing or noticing neurological soft signs. These can be eye or head movements, hand or foot movements.
Catching Back Developmental Gaps
Overcoming his/her challenges physically, biologically and intellectually through movement-based learning and reflex integrations to catch up on developmental gap and remove postural obstacles.
Techniques used in our A.C.E and P.E.A.R.L.S programs for breakthroughs includes:
Brain Gym for dynamic brain activation.
Brain Gym® are techniques of movements, exercises, or activities that recall the movements naturally done during the first years of life when learning to coordinate the eyes, ears, hands, and whole body. Doing such movement “balances” often bring about dramatic improvements in areas such as:
- Concentration and Focus
- Academics: reading, writing, math, test taking
- Physical coordination
- Organization skills
Movement Based Learning techniques for focusing and comprehension.
Movement-based learning has come to be known in the neurobiological field as any brain-based learning that stimulates the growth of neural pathways through movement of the body.
Movement-based learning grew out of research revolving around kinesiology. Kinesiology is the study of human movement that encompasses biological components of movement including anatomical, physiological, neurological, biochemical and biomechanical. Theoretical knowledge of kinesiology is applied in many areas including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and vision training. The approach of these applications can be therapeutic, preventive, or high-performance.
Rhythmic Movement Training for postural and developmental gaps.
Rhythmic Movement Training is a movement based, primitive (infant or neo-natal) reflex integration program that uses developmental movements, gentle isometric pressure and self-awareness to rebuild the foundations necessary to help overcome learning, sensory, emotional and behavioural challenges for children and adults.
Rhythmic movements are gentle rocking and reflex integration movements that stimulate neural pathways and promote learning, emotional balance and ease of movement. RMTi is an effective way to help with symptoms of ADD/ADHD, learning challenges, autism and behavioral/emotional imbalances without the use of drugs.
Touch for Health method for posture, emotion and vitality.
Touch for Health® Kinesiology (TFHK ) is a system of balancing posture, attitude and life energy for greater comfort and vitality.
Touch for Health is a systems of healing that use manual muscle bio-feedback to determine which stimuli stress the body and how that stress can be decreased. It does not treat or diagnose symptoms, but works with the energy, habits and aspirations of the child, offering a safe and effective way to overcome energy imbalance and allows the improvement of performance in functional challenges.
Touch for Health is the most widely used system of kinesiology in the world.
