In the video clip below, William Calglazier works with teacher/trainer, Lee-Ann Dawson, from The GoodSport Trust at Westlake Emmanuel Educare Pre-School. Lee Ann’s time (1 year) was paid for by money that William raised through friends, family, an App award from Citadel on the Move and a generous 100% matching donation by Standard Bank of South Africa. They are doing specific movements that are designed to promote learning (concentration, memory,reading, writing, organizing, listening and physical coordination) through coordinating and strengthening the whole body. It is often referred to loosely as “brain gym”.
