THEA 399 Brain Gym®
​Section Number 88​
​Credits 2 - 3
​Description Brain Gym® is an educational program that uses simple movements to enhance learning abilities in children and adults. This program was developed by Paul Dennison, PhD, an expert in child motor development. It is based on 80 years of research by educational therapists, developmental optometrists, and other developmental specialists.

Brain Gym® consists of simple movements that children do naturally during their first three years of life which accomplish important developmental steps for coordination of eyes, ears, hands, and the whole body. Through years of clinical experience, field studies, and in published research reports, Brain Gym® movements have been shown to prepare children with the physical skills they need in order to learn to read, write, and other wise function effectively in the classroom.
