Dear JYL
Some Brain Gym(R) instructors, including myself, have noticed and reported improvements in memory skills in some students and ourselves. The Brain Gym/Educational Kinesiology program is one program with many facets. The Educational Kinesiology Indepth work is the more advanced work though still incorporating most of the Brain Gym work along with some activities that might be more appropriate for persons with limited movement. The most strenuous activity in the whole program is probably Cross Crawl, or walking in place while moving the arms, which could be modified as can most of the activities.

The way that the Indepth work can be experienced is through private sessions with an instructor/consultant who can also suggest modifications for the basic Brain Gym exercises that might be suggested for daily home activity in support of the work done in the private sessions. The link for the list of instructor consultants is at the top left of the pages on this web site.

I presume your son-in-law is in consultation with appropriate medical and psychological professionals and recommend that he continue. The Brain Gym® activities are intended for educational purposes only and meant to be used as learning readiness activities to help the student practice sensory-motor skills for related learning skills. The improvement of sensory integration does seem to help the information taken in by the senses to be processed into memory better. They are not meant to be a treatment for any psychological or medical condition. As with any exercise program please consult with your physician before starting the Brain Gym exercise program.
Best Wishes,
Dave Saunders
