Bal-A-Vis-X Practitioner and Trainer
Author, The Illustrated Bal-A-Vis-X
At a CAHPERD conference, I attended a Brain Gym break-out session. Skeptical that its simple moves could reveal learning deficits or blocks, I introduced cross-crawl, touching elbow to opposite knee, to my students. Dumbfounded and flabbergasted! The number of students who could not cross the midline of their bodies, was unnerving. My formal education was not enough. Courses in Brain Gym, Bal-A-Vis-X , and School Moves ensued.

My growing experience made it clear that rhythmic integrative movement is as fundamental to all learning as blue is to a peaceful sky. Instructing a struggling child to practice, practice, practice!—whether a physical or academic skill—is simply a practice in frustration for everyone in the teaching-learning equation. Struggling learners deserve more.

Bal-A-Vis-X is the cornerstone of IN2GR8ED. BAVX addresses rhythm, balance, focus, vision tracking, sound discrimination, midline crossings in three dimensions, and behavior. BAVX emphasizes identifying and nurturing one’s strengths while ameliorating deficiencies. And while it is work, it is also engaging, motivating, and FUN!
