SIP Abacus & Brain Gym 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. In young children especially, the brain is constantly building to form new connections in response to the stimulations received. Thus, Abacus and Brain Gym learning helps the whole brain development of a child. This process uses the 3 senses (tactile, visual and auditory) to develop and balance their mental, physical, emotional and social interaction, personality and confidence.
