1. Do I need to log on at the same time each week to do the course?
No, you log on (each day) whenever is most convenient for you.
2. What kind of physical movements will I do?
Each day, you’ll do a 30-minute floor time session (though that can be divided into two, 15-minute sessions). During this time, you’ll do specific movements that parallel those very same movements that babies do during their first year of life. That means that you’ll do primitive reflex movements, creep, and crawl. You’ll also do simple vestibular and proprioceptive movements since such movements also help to develop the lower brain, as well as calming and alerting.
3. What if I have a physical condition that might make it challenging to do the physical part of the program?
If needed, your class facilitator can offer ways to modify the physical part of the program.
4. How much space will I need to do the daily floor time sessions?
You’ll need flooring that’s not carpeted (e.g., wood, tile) that’s equal to about the length of a lane in pool (if you wanted to swim laps). In other words, this space would be long enough to go down the lane and enough room turn around to come back.
5. What if my house is mostly carpeted?
In such case, you’d lay something on top of your carpet during your 30-minute floor time sessions. Such coverings are inexpensive (usually around $20) and can be purchased at most home improvement stores. Once in the program, we provide specific details on possible ways to cover your carpet.
6. How soon (after starting the course) would I expect to experience some changes?
While everyone is different, you may start to notice some changes not long after you start—especially since we present ways to calm your brain early in the course.
But, in general, changing the brain and recalibrating the nervous system is a bit-by-bit process, where we don’t realize something has changed until one day, we go, “Wow! When did that happen?” In a way, it’s like when parents periodically mark their kids’ height on a wall. Each day, they don’t “see” their kids growing—and yet, that growth line has significantly moved the next time they measure their child! Bottom line: It’s impossible to do the course (if you do what we present) and not experience some changes by the end of the course.
7. At the end of the course, will I be completely done with my lower brain development?
That depends on how much of your lower brain was underdeveloped when you began the course. But most likely, you’ll still need to do more of the floor time exercises after the course ends (if you want your lower brain to be fully developed). However, at that point, you’ll have learned everything you need to know to finish the rest of the development all on your own.
8. Once my lower brain development IS complete, will I have to do any work to maintain those new pathways?
Once the lower centers of the brain are developed, you’re DONE! So, no, there’s no need to continue doing those lower brain movements. You’ve made those important neural connections, which also means you now have those automatic, brain functions. (Woo-hoo!)
9. Is it possible to talk by phone to Brain Highways staff before enrolling?
Due to the large volume of people, worldwide, who inquire about our program and the significant time changes between where such people live and Brain Highways staff live, it’s not feasible to do individual phone calls. However, we’re always happy to respond to any individual concerns or questions sent via email.
