Brain Health Education
Brain Health Begins in Early Childhood

The Amazing Brain Show is a fun interactive multimedia live show. The show is the spear-head of the Institute's proactive brain health initiatives for children, educators and family engagement.

Thousands of children of all ages have seen The Amazing Brain Show with reported outcomes of children asking to eat more fruit and vegetables - one child went home and asked for his first piece of fruit ever! Most go home as the 'wee police', telling the family about the relevance of wee colour and wondrously, some have asked to go bed earlier! Children are educating their parents and siblings.

The fun, live shows run for about 30-60mins, depending on the ages of the audience. It's designed to introduce the concept of the importance of looking after the health of our amazing brain. "Our brain is our body's computer and it needs good food, water and sleep to work properly. If our brain doesn't get enough of these things, we don't feel well and happy, we have difficulty learning and may have poor behaviour".

The show is based on our free Brian's Brain Book Apps and features 'Brian the Amazing Brain'. The app is designed to deliver the message into the family home.

The Amazing Brain Show is often the beginning of an ongoing collaborative partnership with centres, children, families, communities and The Brain Health Education Institute. These collaborations are reported to be responsible for substantial improvements in behaviour, learning outcomes and emotional well being.
