Movement Based Learning™ – Breakthru Academy for Educational and Special Kinesiology Studies Malaysia

Movement Based Learning™



The Brain Gym® International Foundation developed a unique program of physical activities that synchronizes body and mind to enhance learning and achievement for people of all ages and abilities. The activities and methods of Brain Gym® are safe, easy and enjoyable.

Cecilia Koester developed a course for Brain Gym® International called Brain Gym® for Special Needs Providers (BG170). Therapists, teachers, tutors, elder caregivers and parents as well as anyone in the caring professions will benefit from learning how to assess the needs of an individual, develop a Brain Gym® program to meet those needs, evaluate the effectiveness of the program with ways to modify when necessary for best results. Brain Gym® for Special Needs Providers offers excellent applications for a variety of mental and physical challenges including: autism, cerebral palsy, attention deficit disorders (ADD and ADHD), dyslexia, Angelman’s Syndrome, Down Syndrome, speech impairments, brain injuries, blindness, deafness and impairments caused by strokes.


What is Movement Based Learning™?

With the varied needs of children, Cecilia Koester, M.Ed further developed a movement-based program that addresses the foundational pieces of learning so that children who have special needs can learn how to learn. She teaches/consults in a functional, practical way so that any information is directly applicable and useable.

The movements and activities that Movement Based Learning™, Inc. incorporate in the child's learning are based on natural, normal human development. They bring about rapid and often dramatic improvements in focus, comprehension, communication, organization and physical movement.

Participants will leave this course with the new skills that optimize learning and performance in all areas of life. And they will find that these tools are immediately applicable in home, school and therapeutic settings! In addition to teaching the above courses, Cecilia Koester is mentoring others to teach Brain Gym® for Special Education Providers. To gain more knowledge about MBL™ International follow this link.
