We just finished our 4th month of the 12 month Brain Training Program. Brain retraining is done through a series of physical exercises that selectively accesses a certain part of the brain by having the eyes look in a specified direction. That direction is directly related to a sensory stimulation point.
This past month’s activities were just a bit more complex than we were used to. C continues to enjoy getting our pink binder out with all of her dry erase markers so that we can complete the activities. The activities this month really showed me how well C can focus. Again, her memory was challenged during this month’s activities as well. The most challenging activities were those that required her to listen to verbal directives and then follow through with the directive. I was pleased that at this level, the directives were not multi-step. I hope that in the later months there are directives that are multi-step.
As usual, the month’s activities were quite fun for her to complete. She is very happy that we are to do the activities 3-5 times per week. She does get disappointed each week when I tell her it is time to do the brain retraining exercises. Those, to her, are not as exciting. Thankfully, those are only done once a week.
This program is great for students with mixed Dominance, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia and many other needs our kids face today. I enjoy working through this program with my child to see how it can help other students, especially those that I work with in school. Like I mentioned in previous posts, it is definitely a program that requires commitment. It should not be difficult though, if you are committed to your child and their needs.
