This photo looks like two cauliflowers connected by a band of fibers in the middle. That band of fibers in the middle is called the Corpus Callosum. The photo is of the brain.
The Corpus Callosum transfers and coordinates the information between the two sides of the brain. It allows the child to use both sides of the body together which is known as bilateral integration. Bilateral integration means the ability for a child to move one hand, foot, or eye into the area of the other hand, foot or eye smoothly. A child will cross this midline when they read left to right, cross their legs, or scratch an elbow. The Corpus Callosum is known as the superhighway of the brain.
Ok, so what does this science lesson have to do with SKILLZ at Yonsei?
It is one of the reasons our classes and drills are age specific.
The SKILLZ program is based on the science behind child development. At Yonsei when we use the SKILLZ drills, the Corpus Callosum and the various motor and cognitive skills for each stage of development are strengthened. When you combine that knowledge along with various SKILLZ training techniques, such as neurobics, a child’s cognitive learning abililty and physical ability improves which leads to more success in school, at home, and in any activity in which the child participates.
