Neuropsychology becomes more and more popular in Russia now. Some years ago nobody knew aboiut it here, but now many parents use its methods to help their kids develop right and fast.
Why? Because it really helps!
I've tried its exercises too when I helped my boy to start speaking. He kept silence rather long because he is a left-hander, and their brain develops different from right-handers, and speech centers develop with different speed as well. I kept calm but still tried to help my boy to start speaking using Neuropsychological tips. Here are some of them.
Neuropsychology studies how the brain and nervous system affect human behavior - and vice versa: how sensations in the body affect the same brain and nervous system.
This means that if you deliberately evoke certain sensations in the body, you can control the child's condition.
The use of neuropsychological methods is especially important before 6-7 years when the child's brain is actively developing and the foundation of the nervous system is being created.
There is a link between vestibular performance and speech skills, emotional stability, and academic success.
The cerebellum is responsible for the work of the vestibular apparatus, and it is stimulated by exercises on fitball and balancing boards.
Swings and merry-go-rounds are more than just fun. Different areas of the brain work during the process, including the cerebellum.
To successfully develop intelligence, it is important to activate both hemispheres of the brain. This is helped by simultaneous or sequential movements of different parts of the body.
Here are some great exercises you can use to have useful fun with your kid.
My boy and me like them very much, and they really work fine!
