NMSBVI Alamogordo Preschool Instructor, Ms. Mary Vaughn demonstrates and explains the benefits of an exercise called "Brain Gym". She performs these exercises with her students before having them do developmental tasks and activities. The results have shown an increased attention span, increased memory skills and ability to predict or expect certain outcomes, and an increased overall ability to learn and develop important motor skills. Since implementing "Brain Gym" into her daily routine students have exhibited great progress all around.
Other NMSBVI Instructors have also noticed the benefits of Brain Gym in teaching students who are blind or visually impaired. By making contact with parts of the body such as an arm or a leg, we increase the student's perioperception (sense of limbs in space) and give them an awareness of themselves and their abilities to touch and explore the world around them using those limbs.
