EDUCATION

On-going studies continue to validate correlations between IM and academic achievement in mathematics, language, reading, and attention to task. Once a trainee completes the full training program one may expect to see benefits in the following fundamental capacities focus/concentration, processing information, timing, planning and sequencing – all necessary for coordination and thinking skills. Improvements to these fundamental capacities may impact performance in areas of academics, performing arts, athletic endeavours, and occupational or daily living activities.

Once training is complete the following observations have been reported:

  • Improvements in academic grades
  • Better eye contact and easier conversation
  • Focus and attention for longer periods of time
  • Physical endurance and stamina
  • Concentration – to filter out internal and external distractions
  • Coordinated performance and motor control
  • Better ability to regulate frustration and anger
  • Better language processing, reading and math fluency
