Neuro-Developmental Therapy

Play With Me

“I tried to teach my child from books; He gave me only puzzled looks, I tried to teach my child with words; They passed him by, oft unheard. Despairingly I turned aside; “How shall I teach this child?” I cried. Into my hand he put the key; “Come” he said, “play with me.” What is neuro-developmental therapy? In short, neuro-developmental therapy is specific play that stimulates and organizes the brain with the muscle, reflex, and sensory systems of the body.” — Author Unknown

What is neuro-developmental therapy for reading comprehension?

In short, neuro-developmental therapy is specific play that stimulates and organizes the brain with the muscle, reflex, and sensory systems of the body.

It’s really pretty simple. Children develop foundational skills (visual, auditory, motor, and kinesthetic) through play. It’s just the way we were built, and it works quite well. When children are given enough time to experience and internalize the skills necessary to form a firm foundation, their responses to learning occur automatically. For any number of reasons a child’s foundational skills may not be ready to learn at the pace required for success in a typical academic environment. Regardless of why or how it’s NEVER too late to backup and start addressing the issue.

How can my child benefit from neuro-developmental therapy?

When the foundational systems of the body (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and motor) are integrated with the brain and matured we are able to learn and move with ease. When all these systems are seamlessly working together, the child can concentrate his efforts on learning new things. Focus, listening, seeing, and moving are no longer a thinking task and the child’s energies can be used to learn.

Without specific instruction in reading, writing, and mathematics, your child’s grades will improve.

Here is a short list of some of the benefits of brain-integration using the Brainy Zainy Gymnastics methods:

  • Improved concentration and focus
  • Improved reading and reading comprehension
  • Improved short and long term memory
  • Reduced stress, anger, and anxiety
  • Improved academic performance
  • Improved hand-eye coordination
  • Improved balance
  • Improved motor and proprioception abilities
  • Help with Dyslexia
