The Effect of Brain Gym Exercises on Self- Esteem and Sensory Processing Speed on High School Hearing Impaired Students
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.
