“I was on a meditation week near Broadford Co. Clare when I came across literature advertising Brain Gym in 2001. I quickly signed up for it. I have two children who have autism and one with dyslexia all now adults. From my children I learned I had dyslexia but was afraid to get tested. Looking back Brain Gym has had a profound effect on our family and personal life. The people I had as case studies all became successfully.

My daughter who is Special needs with Autism won a gold Medal in Special Olympics Summer Games 2015 and gave an excellent interview transmitted worldwide. She is also completing her honours degree at LIT in Sport Strengthening and Conditioning. She learned to concentrate through movement in Sport and Brain Gym. Our son with Autism was hyper and we used Brain Gym exercises to calm him down. I could give endless other examples.

It took me a long time to be fully convinced about the value of Brain Gym as I lived in my head and read too many not so scientific journals that disparaged it. It was only when I went through my own dark night did I fully see I need to be fully connected with mind and body and now I appreciate the profound and positive effect Brain Gym had in my life.

I feel great appreciation for the positive help I have received during my life from many people and among these I must rank among the highest as Padraig King for introducing me to Brain Gym.
