Children work on balance while walking on the raised and rigid tactile pathway.
Improve spatial awareness while balancing
Balancing activities challenge the brain to adjust its spatial orientation using the proprioceptive system.
Balancing helps aid the brain to place words on a page, to read from left to right and to write patterns in sequence.
Activities that involve balancing help the brain to anchor information and improve memory retrieval.

A fun tool designed to introduce purposeful movement into the classroom,
Boomerboard activities can be incorporated with academics to teach and review lessons, increase classroom engagement, or use throughout the day to transition, brain boosters, or make learning fun with academic games!
Students experience both the physical and neurological benefits of jumping, along with 50+ additional exercises to aid in balance, rhythm, core strength, spatial awareness, endurance, and can be used to work on all 12 foundations of learning readiness. The silent, non-distracting motion allows for a reprieve from the traditional classroom setting.
Research shows that purposeful movement prepares the brain to learn, and creates an optimal environment for students.
The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance, eye movement and spatial orientation. This system helps to keep students stable and upright. If your student has trouble with body awareness, (Sensory system: the vestibular system) or balance (sensory system: the proprioceptive system) they will often struggle with classroom activities such as letter and number formation, handwriting, copying from the board and tying their shoes.

Oversized Sensory Floor Pillow
The balance beam enables kids to be challenged while improving balance and coordination. Kids improve vestibular balance, movement coordination, and concentration while understanding their body's center of gravity. The balance beam also helps to improve self-confidence, learning stability and sense of reaction. Each unit is equipped with the ability to add another beam on each end, thus allowing facility operators to make the beam as long as they need.
The balance rope is 6 foot long. The 2" round polypropylene rope provides a more challenging walking surface than a traditional flat beam, increasing the balance difficulty for all ages.
Why are gross motor skills important?
Gross motor skills are important to enable children to perform everyday functions, such as walking, running, skipping, as well as playground skills (e.g. climbing) and sporting skills (e.g. catching, throwing and hitting a ball with a bat). These are crucial for everyday self-care skills like dressing (where you need to be able to stand on one leg to put your leg into a pant leg without falling over).
Gross motor abilities also have an influence on other everyday functions. For example, a child's ability to maintain table top posture (upper body support) will affect their ability to participate in fine motor skills (e.g. writing, drawing, and cutting) and sitting upright to attend to class instruction, which then impacts on their academic learning. Gross motor skills impact on your endurance to cope with a full day of school (sitting upright at a desk, moving between classrooms, carrying your heavy school bag).
Flexible and versatile 2" diameter 6" circumference textured poly rope.
Length 6 ft.
Green Balance Arch

Monkey-See Eye Tracker Station
Monkey See Eye Tracker Station
Includes Bean Bags
Our Monkey-See eye tracker station helps to increase visual stamina for test taking. There are muscles in our eyes that focus near and far and muscles that allow us to track left to right and up and down. These muscles should be strengthened in the same way as our arm muscles. Eye tracking exercises strengthen the muscles in our eyes to increase the length of time that eyes can focus on reading.
Barrel Jump Set

ABL Learning Assessment Steps
ABL Learning Assessment Steps
ABL Assessment steps are used in the ABL Learning Lab at the elementary level. Children begin by walking up and down stairs, and increase difficulty using progressions as laid out in the ABL Lab Manual. As children advance, they hold various objects to engage the full body while encourage balance, proprioception, crossing the midline, and motor skills. More advanced learners, will be able to utilize ABL Academic Card Sets as part of the Assessment Steps Station, to anchor learning and improve retention and memory retrieval in the classroom.
