Brain Gym® Teacher Practicum 

Designed for those who wish to develop and successfully teach Brain Gym in a class or private format. Provides instruction in theory, teaching methods, and procedures, and development of an action plan for achieving professional goals.

This course is built on self-reflecting, collaborating and co-teaching. The students “practice” teaching the Brain Gym® concepts. They also present the instructor with their completed coursework and a self-assessment. Preparing the paperwork shows self-responsibility, competency and administrative prowess. While there is a level of vulnerability required to share your private work, doing so is an opportunity to receive feedback and refine one’s knowledge base. The preparation helps the student. And, it also aids the instructor who assesses the paperwork and then fine-tunes the course content accordingly. It is a win-win. But like most wins, it requires a bit of effort on everyone’s part.

Brain Gym really opened my eyes to a different way of thinking and moving forward with the students. Letting them choose what they want to practice for helping themselves is totally revolutionary for me.
