If you would like to experience how Edu-K can support specific skills, such as motor development, fine motor skills for handwriting, or maths, a specialised course is a good place to start. On the courses you will learn a selected set of activities and techniques drawn from the Edu-K programme. There are two types of course:
- Open to all – these are great tasters of what the programme has to offer.
- Pre-requisite of attending the Brain Gym® 101 Foundation Course – these build on a basic knowledge of Brain Gym movement activities, goal setting techniques and concepts.
The courses have been developed by Brain Gym® 101 Instructors with an interest in a particular skill set. While the courses have been approved by the Educational Kinesiology Trust in the UK as being of a suitable standard, they are not part of the body of internationally approved courses. Attending a specialised course is one of several ways of sampling the Edu-K approach to personal development.
