by Frank Belgau as told to Eric Belgau; 200 pages. Subtitle: Discovery of a Learning Breakthrough.
"Learning Breakthrough" is a program that uses a balance board, pendulum, bean bags, and other therapy items to train kids' brains and make learning easier. Frank Belgau, who developed the program, tells of his experiences in the classroom and in academia as he worked with children to find the techniques that would turn the lights on for them. It's an engaging tale, maybe even enough to make you want to seek the program out and buy a kit at the end.
This video shows Dr. Frank Belgau relating the connection between neural network efficiency and resolution of neurons being mathematically connected to the number of neurons involved in the difficulty of a task. This concept is at the core of Learning Breakthrough's "variable difficulty balance platform" which Dr. Belgau credits as his most important single contribution to the world of learning treatments. It is the main reason that Learning Breakthrough has succeeded where other treatments have not. Don't get confused that the exercises of imitators is what makes a program like this work. Its the balance challenge, delivered over time and in a precise manner that generates the sought after neuroplasticity gains.
