We know teachers work very hard to keep the students' attention, and encourage and motivate them while also staying organized and on time. What if we could provide you with additional activities that will help improve a student's attention, focus, and memory while at the same time allowing them to explore physical activities in a fun, social, and non-threatening environment? Brains & Balance in Motion for Kids was developed for healthy

elementary students as well as those who have ADHD and/or Dyslexia.

 

And here's the icing on the cake...

  • It's easy to incorporate into your classes & easy to teach
  • It's short - one game or activity takes about 10 minutes
  • It's fun and social - for a short time you and the kids can forget about the classroom stress
  • It's inexpensive and doesn't require a lot of supplies

 

Research shows that combining Cognitive Tasks with Physical Tasks is far more effective than working on each task
individually. Classroom techniques learned in Brains & Balance workshop may be implemented the next day to help improve academic performance and insure that our students experience exercise in a fun, non-threatening environment.


You will learn to implement activities that enhance cognitive skills while moving or participating in a physical activity - this is Dual Tasking.


Dual Tasking has been scientifically proven to speed up neurological development. You can empower the next
generation to process information faster, increase their memory, retention and recall and expand their executive
functioning (decision-making).
