Edu-K In Depth – The Seven Dimensions of Learning & Intelligence

From the time of conception, a child’s nervous system goes through a series of specific stages of development. Personal, environmental, biochemical, structural, and/or academic stress can inhibit the effective completion of these key developmental processes. For adults, chronic stress or tension is one clue that developmental skills are incomplete. Edu-K balances create immediate and lasting changes by actually building neurological bridges and pathways within the brain and body that assist in the completion of developmental processes.

This 5-day training builds from Brain Gym® with a simple yet comprehensive approach to learning that respects the individual’s integrity while creating positive change from a causative level. In an experiential and personally transformative context, you will learn and practice theory and methods for one-on-one educational consulting. Useful innovative techniques, lucid enjoyable demonstrations, daily guided practice time and a relaxed atmosphere offer you a truly unique experience that applies directly to both your personal and professional life & development:

  • Explore and transform learning difficulties and hidden agendas for failure.
  • Learn acupressure, movement, vision training, and other balancing techniques.
  • Improve communication, coordination, and organization within the brain and body.
  • Create immediate and cumulative benefits
  • Draw out the excellence available to all of us.
  • Learn successful goal setting
  • Apply learning theory to get practical results
  • Experience a personal breakthrough in relationships and your personal success.
  • Relate observed body movements to life skills

Throughout the course you will be guided towards self directed learning through transformation of personal learning blocks into resources to rediscover joy, ease and wholeness of learning, increasing your understanding of:

Seven Dimensions of Intelligence

  1. Laterality (Communication)
  2. Centering (Organization)
  3. Focus (Comprehension) and add four new dimensions of brain/body integration:
  4. Motivation (Attitude) – the relationship of motivation and language acquisition. Hidden agendas for failure.
  5. Cranials (Rhythm) – the understanding of cranial movement and its relationship to learning and expression.
  6. Breathing (Inspiration) – change the breath-holding reflex to breathing that supports learning and growing.
  7. Body Regulators (Self Management) – create the appropriate brain chemistry to enhance learning in any situation.

[Testimony] In two months, we noticed a great leap in our son’s development

IMG_7211

After my son was rejected by two kindergartens, my wife and I sought professional help. He was diagnosed with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) by a psychologist at four years old and later with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) . As parents, we were confused and  did not know how to help our child.

Being full-time professionals, my wife and I struggled for time.  Many times, we missed our son’s appointments with his occupational and speech therapists. Then, we were introduced to BEST Centre by our OT. In two months, we noticed a great leap in our son’s development.

We understand that our child, now six years old, is at his prime learning age.   We also realize that besides the external assistance, we also need to give him our best support. This desire led me to temporarily resign from my job. My wife and I attended the Brain Gym (R) 101 International Certificate Course. During the course, I discovered the need of change in my attitude and the missing part in search of strategies to solve my child’s learning problem. Learning the Brain Gym ® course helped me to integrate my new initiative and reinforce willingness to implement my goals.

I also signed up for Diploma in Special Need Education at the Linguistic Council and attended many other workshops. In this journey, I discovered more creative ways to communicate with my son, which include replacing TV hours with outdoor activities like kicking ball and swimming.

In a few months, we noticed that our son was able to better manage his behavioral problems. He is now more willing to adapt to changes and is more obedient, too.
