NeuroNet In The Silverdale Classroom
NeuroNet actually helps to train the brain to process what it hears, sees, and feels faster and more precisely. Research has shown that how we improve what we learn is to speed up how fast we can access what we already know. The way to speed up that access is by strengthening the brainís neural networks and training the different areas of the brain to work together. The vestibular (balance) system is the key to this training because it works as the brainís timekeeper.
NeuroNet looks at auditory and vestibular behaviors and how these behaviors affect a childís ability to learn basic skills. Not only does the program help a childís attention, coordination and problem solving, some of the greatest benefits of NeuroNet are increasing self-confidence and focus, stabilizing behavior and improving a childís sense of well-being.
Our teachers lead the students in strategic NeuroNet exercises each morning. SBA has been using NeuroNet since it first began in our specialized academics program. Teresa Bruns, a Pediatric Occupational therapist with over 25 years experience, oversees the program. The results have been so significant that we have introduced it in our lower grade levels.
