Bal-A-Vis-X

 

Bal-A-Vis-X is an acronym for Balance/Auditory/Vision eXercises, all of which are deeply rooted in rhythm. Using sand-filled bags and racquetballs, these exercises address visual tracking deficiency, auditory imprecision, impulsivity, balance and anxiety issues. Bag exercises are often combined with foot patterns; ball exercises are often done while standing on special balance boards. In partner/group settings, exercises demand cooperation, promote self-challenge, foster peer teaching. We teach students who, although struggling, are capable of mainstream instruction (they do not have severe special needs). Research Results To date, these studies concerning the results of using Bal-A-Vis-X have been published and shared with me. They are republished with permission here for your reading and use.
