Hearing a steady beat and keeping a steady beat develops the internal dialogue, that little voice inside your head.This inner dialogue starts around 3-5 years old by hearing/listening to human voices (talk, sing, pitch).Internal dialogue is necessary for acquiring receptive and expressive language.
These concepts aid the brain in auditory discrimination by sounding out letter sounds and words in a receptive language and discriminating words in spoken language.
Tactile Stepping Pathway
Tactile Stepping Pathway
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.

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.
