Activity Gym: The Crispiani Method

April 19, 2021, 11-1 pm East Coast, 5-7 pm Italy.

We have a unique opportunity to join Dr. Eleanora Palmieri in Italy as she teaches us how to implement the ACTIVITY GYM portion of the Crispiani Method. Activity Gym is a constellation of brief 5-10-minute cognitive-motor exercises derived from The Crispiani Method.

Join Us for The Crispiani Activity Gym Training

For over 40 years Professor Piero Crispiani has been developing, teaching, and researching cognitive-motor activities to improve neural activation in children and adults with dyslexia and dyspraxia.

As the Scientific Director of International Dyspraxia and Dyslexia Center in Macerata Italy, Professor Crispiani and Dr. Eleanora Palmieri have taught their intervention model worldwide. In our clinical practice, I use elements of The Crispiani Method in combination with our CogniMoves activities with amazing success. Children come into the work with diminished motor tone, disorganized motor planning, and slow cognitive processing, they leave the treatment with better pacing, core strength, temporal-timing, prosody, and confidence.

  • Activity Gym exercises are done quickly and intensively to engage motor-cognition for better sensory integration of the neural networks in the brain.
  • Employing ipsilateral and contralateral movement sequences, Professor Crispiani and Dr. Palmieri engage cognitive-motor brain function to enhance neuroactivation in dyslexia, dyspraxia, and neurodevelopmental disorders.
  • Activity Gym can be implemented during activities of daily living, early in the morning before going to school or work, before homework, before classroom lessons, and anytime the brain and body would benefit from alerting engagement. Activity Gym is useful for all ages and can be done by teachers, clinicians, therapists, and parents.
