Development of Brain Gym
This program grew out of clinical studies in 1969 by Paul Dennison, P.h.D., an educational consultant, who was looking for ways to help children and adults who had been identified as learning-disabled.  Dr Dennison noticed that after doing certain movements his students' learning and performance often improved.
Dr Paul Dennison has been developing procedures over a thirty year period and continues to research and develop the Brain Gym process of learning through movement.
Brain Gym is now practised in over 80 countries.

"Learning is that magical thing that takes place in a split second, that changes us forever. ....We believe that no matter how many times we repeat a 'learned task' if a better way of doing it is presented, and the whole brain/body system experiences the ease and joy of the new way, all former patterns can be released in a moment. This, for us, is learning."
    — Dr Paul Dennison (Creator of the Brain Gym program)
