SIP Abacus & Brain Gym programme

The SIP Abacus and Brain Gym Program caters to children in the age group of 5 -12 years. This program uses internationally proven tools like Abacus, Brain Gym and Speed writing.

This “Abacus and Brain Exercise” program is a system of education that maximizes the potential of the child’s brain. The process of learning abacus methodology is known as Mental Arithmetic. Working on abacus optimizes and integrates the functions of the left and the right brain during the early years. Scientific research has proved that the use of Abacus stimulates the nerves in the fingers and sends message through the neurons. This continuous process of information transfer energizes the brain. Brain Gym exercises designed by Dr. Paul Dennison enhances communication flow between functional centres and removes mental blocks resulting in whole brain development.
