- You will know how and when to use these activities to facilitate learning, literacy, numeracy, appropriate behaviour and coordinated movement.
Brain Gym was developed as a way to facilitate readers with severe difficulties to read with fluency, comprehension and enjoyment. Over 50 years it has evolved and grown into a body of 26 activities that facilitate literacy, learning, coordinated movement and balance.
Padraig King spent almost 20 years in mainstream, learning support and resource teaching in schools in Tallaght, Clondalkin and rural Sligo. His interest in Brain Gym grew as he saw how it made many aspects of his own dyslexia easier to manage. He was also encouraged and excited by the speed and ease with which students of all ages and backgrounds made progress once they were given the tools to overcome their obstacles. Children who were disaffected and classed as “lazy” and “could do better” were soon turned on, performing in class and achieving their potential.
