Brain Pump was created by Dr. Erin Reilly and Tiffany Higginbotham of Neurokinetic Solutions. NKS is the synthesis of professional interests between a Physical Therapist and a Kinesiology Professor who both were concerned about the growing prevalence of children with coordination and processing disorders/issues as well as a cultural shift in the way children move and play. We see NKS as being a solution to these problems in 2 different ways:
Tiffany and Erin are both passionate about educating teachers, parents and administrators on the correlation between movement and learning. We feel strongly that if parents and educators really understand the science behind early movement and play, education will adapt to better incorporate more purposeful movement into schools.
Tiffany & Erin are also the co-founders of Brain Pump, a children’s group exercise class with a strong neurological component, that combines normal gross motor activity with therapeutic concepts that can positively affect attention, coordination and learning.
