Name: Summer Boost-Up Plus
Description:Our physical movement can directly influence our ability to learn, think and remember. It has been shown that certain physical activities that have a strong mental component, such as soccer or tennis, enhance social, behavioral and academic capabilities. Evidence is mounting that each person's capacity to master new and to remember old information is improved by biological changes in the brain brought on only by physical activity. Our physical movements call upon some of the same neurons used for reading, writing and math. Physically active people reported an increase in academic abilities, memory, retrieval, and cognitive abilities. What makes us move is also what makes us think. Certain kinds of exercise can produce chemical alterations that give us stronger, healthier, and happier brains. A better brain is better equipped to think, to remember, and to learn.

Boost-up was created as a multi-sensory approach towards gaining the readiness skill needed to excel in the classroom.

After doing 80 hours of balance/vestibular, gross and fine motor and visual acuity exercises, children on average make a six-month reading gain.

The best aspect of Boost-Up is that children love it, it is a fun approach to learning.
