Brain Gym® Publications Archives

Dec 26, 2016 | Reprints from Edu-K Pubs

Is there any research on the relationship between reading and Brain Gym? Has anyone ever used Brain Gym with eating disorders? Does this work with ADHD and/or autism? Are the reflexes addressed? When I was Program Director at the Educational Kinesiology Foundation, these questions were asked every week. Most of the time, the answer was yes; however, accessing the relevant article was an ongoing challenge. An archive of Brain Gym® publications was on the perennial wish list!

Brain Gym ®Journal

I was so excited when fellow faculty member and colleague Sher Smith told me she’d begun archiving the publications herself. Here is the index of the Brain Gym Journal from 2000-2009. Thank you Sher! Once you open the document, use the find feature to search for keywords. “Movement” has a lot of hits as does reading and math. The actual publications can be found on the Educational Kinesiology website.

Brain Gym® Global Observer

As the Brain Gym® 101 Handbook (2007) and Brain Gym® Teacher Edition (2010) got revised… and Publicationsas the foundation shifted into the 2010’s, the publications shifted, too. Here is a link to a document I created; it lists articles and keywords in the Brain Gym Global Observer Index. You can find some of the complete publications here.

EKF  Newsletter

Five years later, more re-evaluation occurred and the publication went online: EKF Newsletter. Here is a list of the top stories in the 2015-2016 Newsletters.

Research

The term research is worth analyzing. There are many kinds of research–scientific, medical, educational. Today’s buzzwords include anecdotal, action-based, and mixed methods. Each one has its place. Within the Brain Gym® field, an educational research model tends to work well. Using a mix of qualitative and quantitative methods meets best practices for both the researcher and the subjects being researched. With a movement-based model, it is unethical to withhold moving. It is exciting to see the research being done at two universities where I teach!

Publications Archives

It is important to gain credibility and professionalism by keeping records. Record what is written. Record what is researched. Record testimonials. The larger the database becomes, patterns emerge regarding what is working in our field. If you have a testimonial and/or research to share, please comment below or send to me at cindy@in-motionintelligence.com.

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
