Minds In Motion

Bridges Lab

The Minds In Motion is a unique movement-based program that focuses on improving children's cognitive functioning by integrating specialized but simple movements. This research-validated program is designed to stimulate a child’s visual processing, auditory processing, and motor skills. The outcome is a better integrated and balanced child who will perform better in school and at home.

Learning is a function of the whole nervous system. Children have difficulty learning if all of the sensory systems are not helping them to process what is on the page and in their environment. The more fine-tuned the sensory and motor systems – the more one can learn and the easier it is to learn. Program benefits include:

  • Increasing the child's ability to work for longer periods of time
  • Increasing confidence
  • Increasing self-esteem
  • Increasing the child's comfort in the classroom
  • Increasing the child's control over his or her behavior

Students perform exercises and challenges that are designed to strengthen their focusing skills, integrate their sensory skills, and train their learning skills.

  • Concentration
