Abstract

As part of the No Child Left behind Act of 2001 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004, schools are called upon to provide students with academic instruction using scientific, research-based methods whenever possible. One of these supposed research-based methods is a program by the name of Brain Gym®. Brain Gym® is a popular commercial program claiming that adherence to its regimen of carrying out certain movements will result in more efficient learning in an almost miraculous manner. Although being particularly popular, Brain Gym® itself has failed to support the contentions of the promoters. For this reason, educators are encouraged to become informed consumers and avoid implementing programs for which there is neither credible theoretical nor a sound research basis.
