Specialized Brain Gym and Building Block Activity Workshop
Overview: This workshop expands traditional Brain Gym exercises and includes introduction to specialized Building Block activities. These activities are supported by the developmental sequence and reflexes to compliment the basic 26 Brain Gym® exercises. Following observations of videos of clients using the techniques, participants will experience these whole-brain learning strategies and “shifts” in their own system. Integration of sensory input within the brain/body system can reduce stress and foster rhythmic body organization. These Integrative Learning Concepts can be applied during therapy, in a home or school setting with groups or individuals. Geared to clients of all ages and abilities, exercises will demonstrate changes, at times in as fast as one minute, between pre and post functional assessments with objective evidence of effectiveness.
