Response to Criticism
The Brain Gym program is an educational movement-based model. The emphasis is on posture, behavior, and the physical skills of learning. The following are some resources that support the theory behind our whole body movement-based approach: John Ratey, John Medina, Michael Posner, Bruce Perry, Jane Healy and Raye Pica.
The majority of the Brain Gym® studies are anecdotal. There is some peer-reviewed research of our program. As a non-profit international organization with limited personnel and financial resources, facilitating research at this time is not an option for us. We extend an invitation to any experts who are willing to help better assess the Brain Gym work. In the meantime, we remain focused on our educational model.
