→ Consists of a hands-on training where the participant learns and experiences various exercises using sand-filled bags and racquetballs, often while standing on a Bal-A-Vis-X balance board;

→ Can be used by therapists, teachers, educators as well as parents working with children with learning disabilities and/or special needs (ASD, ADHD, dyslexia, etc.);

→ Can be used for individual and group intervention.

Bal-A-Vis-X consists of a series of over 300 exercises, of varying degrees of complexity, created to better integrate body and mind by stimulating the visual, auditory, proprioceptive, vestibular and tactile systems. The program highlights the importance of balance and rhythm. Throughout the various exercises, participants further develop their sensorimotor skills in order to improve their balance, coordination and body awareness. These activities also have a positive impact on reading, writing and listening skills as well as on attentiveness, self-esteem, cooperation and peer teaching.

During this 3 day workshop, a variety of Bal-A-Vis-X exercises will be learned and practiced in order to fully comprehend the fundamentals of the program (rhythm, patterns, and procedures). The multiple variations of the exercises will also be presented in order to simplify or complexify the activities, as needed.

In addition, there will be several demonstrations of techniques with children / adolescents during the training to see how Mr. Hubert introduces the method and intervenes according to the various challenges presented by young people.

Bal-A-Vis-X was developed in 1999, by M. Bill Hubert, after over 20 years of working as a first grade teacher, middle school teacher, and martial arts instructor. He felt it important that all these students have fundamental balance and rhythm capabilities so he taught them such basic physical skills as throwing, catching, walking balance beams, skipping, and so on. Slowly, he became aware that, of all his students, the ones most deficient in these basic physical skills were the same ones who struggled most academically. He began to notice that now and then, when a struggling student's balance and rhythm improved, his/her academic performance also improved. M. Hubert now travels all over the world giving these trainings and his Assistant Instructors are in fact, many of his former students.
