Educational kinesiologiya: whether it is possible “to optimize“ work of a brain?

Even more often meet the children not capable to make elementary actions - to catch a ball, to reach the right hand the left ear, etc. It is quite often possible to see how the person the left hand brings the mobile phone to the right ear or on the contrary - right to left.

Obvious communication of work of a body and brain received a scientific explanation only in the middle of the 20th century during researches of the American scientist Paul Dennison.

Analyzing regularities of perception of information and development of the internal speech in children, Dennison expanded traditional ideas of work of a brain and experimentally proved that at many people of a hemisphere functions unusual for them carry out. As a result learning efficiency decreases, abilities are blocked, there are neurosises. Having studied communication between work of hemispheres and ability to see, hear and move, Dennison came to a conclusion that by means of special physical exercises it is possible to restore those functions which are peculiar to it genetically in each hemisphere and to reach balance of all system.

The system optimizing work of a brain was called an educational kinesiologiya (knowledge through the movements). The teacher familiar with bases of an educational kinesiologiya will be able always to tell what channel of perception at his pupil leading - visual, kinestetichesky or audialny. And, above all - how to use this knowledge in “the peace purposes“?

The visual learner perceives information generally visually therefore it is not enough to it to listen to the teacher`s explanations - schemes, schedules, models, illustrations are necessary for it. For inclusion of visual learners in work it is recommended to use the verbs which are making active visual system: look, you see, imagine and so on, and also the words describing color, a form, the extent of object. Visual learners have a fluent speech and high speed of reaction as they think images.

Kinestetik cannot sit still at the time of an explanation of new material - assimilation of information at it goes through the movements. The understanding of this feature will help adults to concern more tolerantly to fidgets in conversation with whom it is better to use the words and examples connected with the description of movements and feelings - touch, feel, take, walk (in the text), smooth, velvet. The speech of kinestetik which is usually slowed down because they listen to the corporal feelings.

Children with leading audialny the channel perceive information first of all “aurally“. Activization of this channel happens to the help of words: listen, hear, listen. Audiala differ in logicality and rationalism of thinking, their speech is measured, rhythmical and consecutive.

The training program is generally focused on visual learners. Kinestetiki and audiala are forced “to translate“ a training material into the language that demands additional forces and time, resulting sometimes in chronic poor progress. Kinesiologiya helps to define the “leading“ eye and an ear - to put the pupil at the left or on the right at such distance from a board which will allow it to acquire information in the maximum volume.

It is possible to reveal features of work of hemispheres by means of special diagnostics by results of which exercises for activization of channels of perception are selected. The system of these exercises is called “Brain gymnastics“ and helps to develop attention and memory, to improve coordination of movements, to solve problems of social adaptation and a goal-setting. According to many experts, today the educational kinesiologiya based on neurophysiology and psychophysiology is the most effective psychocorrectional technique.

Programs of an educational kinesiologiya in many countries are obligatory for all educational institutions. The educational kinesiologiya in Russia appeared thanks to the psychologist S. K. Masgutova who was trained to this equipment in the USA by Paul Dennison and Gayle Dennison twenty years ago. Today the set of manuals and the training programs for a kinesiologiya is offered to our teachers and psychologists. Why problems in training do not become less?

In - the first, only according to books not to master an educational kinesiologiya. I had to observe more than once how there passes a practical training - work with a body demands long and laborious work under the leadership of the master. By muscular test skilled kinesiolog can receive the answer to any question - our body never lies. It is not enough masters because their preparation takes years. At advanced training courses for teachers and psychologists it is possible to master only the first step of this science. But also it - is a lot of.

In - the second to become a good kinesiolog, it is necessary first of all most to reach the balance helping to open the emotional, physical and intellectual resources - only then there is a chance to help other people. However, it concerns any direction of psychology.

In - the third even if you found the good expert who is ready to help you or to your child, it is regularly necessary to carry out the exercises “prescribed“ them to reach effect.

Kinesiologiya - a useful thing. But also it - not panacea from all troubles as, contrary to assurances of her supporters, does not mention “the top echelons“ - motives, requirements and vital values of the person. It is possible and is necessary to perfectly know the body, emotions and reason, but only the vector of their appendix gives sense of human life.
