Special Needs Program

Our Tuesday 5:00 to 5:50 class will use some martial arts but will be heavily dependent upon Brain Gym® and Bal-A-Vis-X. This class is designed for the 5 to 12 year old child to help them have a positive approach to school and homework. These children will improve their focus, math, reading and writing skills and learn easy ways to maintain body/mind integration so they will not be stressed. We will show them how to get right to their homework and be able to focus and complete it in "record" time. It is during these years that a positive attitude to school needs to be fostered. Failure at this time often sets these children up for failure during the rest of their education. Most will end up struggling just to get a "C". In addition to the struggling child, we have found these classes to be very helpful to the dyslexic, ADHD or Asperger's child. We can show them how to be confident and positive toward their school work. We will concentrate on reading and writing abilities as well as focus and attention.

We also offer private Brain Gym® sessions that can be scheduled on-line or in person. These offer the advantage of one-on-one instruction with Brain Gym® and BALV. We use the Brain Gym® movements as well as educational kinesiology to bring balance into their life. We will help them integrate body and mind and they can truly become all that they can be.

We have a licensed Brain Gym instructor on staff, and several staff trained in Bal-A-Vis-X. We are the ONLY martial arts and fitness school that is able to work closely with special needs children and adults. Our instructors also teach classes to the Autistic students at OU Cares. As a matter of fact we have an autistic instructor on staff. We have given many seminars about the uses of Brain Gym® and kinesiology to teachers, OTs and PTs in Macomb Intermediate School District as well as the Utica school system. We are happy to present seminars to interested groups. They can be tailored to everything from a one hour introduction to a 24 hour course called Brain Gym® 101.
