MAGIC HANDS When You Use Your Opposite Hand, Your Brain is ‘Growing’


The Program • Magic Hands is a program designed to activate both hemispheres of a child’s brain by using left hand training


The Brain •

• • •

The brain is divided into two halves known as hemispheres. The hemispheres work together and separately to enable the human body to perform daily tasks. The right side of the brain controls the muscle function on the left side of the body and vice versa. Approximately 90 percent of the population is right-hand dominant. The remaining 10 percent is left handed, with a small portion being ambidextrous, equally able to use both hands. Performing tasks with a nondominant hand promotes brain health by enabling the brain to generate neurons and form new neural pathways.


Benefits of The Program on The • Understanding a child’s dominant brain Brain hemisphere will help parents, caretakers & teachers communicate with the child.

• Using the opposite hand will strengthen neural connections in the brain and enhance the growth of new ones. • There are studies that show that when we use our dominant hand, one hemisphere of the brain is active. • When you use the non-dominant hand, both hemispheres are activated, which may result in thinking differently and becoming more creative.

Benefits of The Program on The Greater concentration Children Improved reading, writing and learning skills Keen listening skills Better Memory Better reflexes Sharper observation Self-confidence Better application skills Improved endurance Improve analytical skills Better expression Better creative and imaginative skills Better comprehension and calculation skills


Communicating With The L-Mode •

Type of Cognitive Processing for Left Hemisphere Dominance

• •

Linear Processing information from part to whole; in a straight forward logical progression. Sequential Processing information in order from first to last. Symbolic Processes symbols an pictures; likes to use letters, words and mathematical symbols. Logical Processes information piece by piece using logic to solve a problem. Verbal Processes thoughts and ideas with words. Reality-Based Processes information based on reality; focuses on rules and regulations

Communicating With The R-Mode •

Type of Cognitive Processing for Right Hemisphere Dominance

• •

Holistic Processing information from whole to part; sees the big picture first, not the details. Random Processing information with out priority, jumps form one task to another. Concrete Processes things that can be seen , or touched - real objects. Intuitive Processes information based on whether or not it feels right know answer but not sure how it was derived. Nonverbal Processes thought as illustrations. Fantasy-Oriented Processes information with creativity; less focus on rules and regulations

Who can benefit from the program?

• This program is suited for all children with different IQ levels. • A less than average and an average performer can benefit from this program through the unique teaching methodology involving visual & auditory senses. • This type of teaching helps improve the child's concentration gradually and helps him better his performance and help overcome his fear on any subject. • For an above average performer, the right side brain development will have a remarkable impact on his achievements at school.


The Curriculum

The program is divided into three different activities

• 1- Magic hands •

Improving the synchronization between thinking and the opposite hand movement by new calculation method

• 2- I-Write •

Training on writing & drawing with the non dominant hand

• 3- Games •

Using the non dominant hand and leg in fun games & sports


Magic Hands • It is a program which enables the student to calculate (add and subtract) on his both hands questions that the answer is up to 99 in seconds. • Example: 20+10-30+5+2+1015= the student will give the answer once we finish the question.


I-Write • Exercise based on letting children writes numbers, letters and then sentences with their left hand.

.


Games and Fun • Sports using the left hand. • Painting with the left hand • Paints will be shown in exhibition • Football left leg training • Musical Instrument training using the left hand


What is the right age to start this program? • The minimum age is 5 and the maximum age is 12 for learning this program • Brain development is significant from birth until 12 years


Program Duration • The learning happens in a fun filled environment and the child never feels the burden of learning a new concept every week. • On a lighter note, every weekly session is a brain gymnasium class for the young and growing minds • 72 training hours • Each session is 2 hours


Reports and Follow Up System for Research & Development designed a system that can calculate and measure performance improvement of the non dominant side of the brain. • This monthly report is a very helpful tool given to the parents allowing them to follow up on there child. •
