Bal-A-Vis-X is an
Acronym for Balance/Auditory/Vision eXercises
Bal-A-Vis-X is an acronym for Balance/Auditory/Vision eXercises, all of which are deeply rooted in rhythm. Using sand-filled bags and racquetballs, these exercises address visual tracking deficiency, auditory imprecision, impulsivity, balance and anxiety issues. Bag exercises are often combined with foot patterns; ball exercises are often done while standing on special balance boards. In partner/group settings, exercises demand cooperation, promote self-challenge, foster peer teaching. We teach students who, although struggling, are capable of mainstream instruction (they do not have severe special needs). Research Results To date, these studies concerning the results of using Bal-A-Vis-X have been published and shared with me. They are republished with permission here for your reading and use.

He now is able to speak in sentences and describe what it is if I didn’t understand the first time. He also has more confidence. Lucas is no longer combative. With any child that…"
"My son has a limited amount of words, was hard to understand when he did speak, and was sensitive to loud sounds. After starting therapy I can understand him better, he rarely covers his ears for loud sounds, and has a larger vocabulary. The most important advice I can give is to follow your instincts…"
"My son could not say his “g” and “k” sounds. Melisa Aar has been so fantastic with my son. He is able to say all his sounds now and is more confident when he talks to people. The therapists are so personable here and we would give Miss Melissa 5 stars for being so awesome!"
