ABSTRACT

Sensory integration is one of the most important types of sensory processing which requires left and right hemispheric coordination. It is a challenge especially in the case of differently-abled children. One way to help differently-abled students achieve academic success is to have positive self-esteem. The present research paper has tried to use Brain Gym exercises on hearing impaired children. The results of the educational kinesiology exercises have been ascertained using Stroop test and self-esteem questionnaire.  The subjects who are selected for the study were hearing impaired students (N=30) between the age group of 15-20 who were given practices on 10 different types of Educational Kinesiology exercises for 45 days continuously.  The results of the pre and post intervention were assessed using paired sample t-test and significant difference in terms of improvements were found in the hearing impaired students on both the sensory processing speed and self-esteem.
