Modern children growing up in the cities have an acute deficit of free movements, which develop the ability of the brain to process information from all the senses and, thus, perceive the world around them in a complex way. Neurophysiologists have discovered that the movements are useful not only for a child with a speech delay and communication problems but for all children. Spontaneous movements and communication during outdoor games on playgrounds, designed according to the neurodynamic approach, are universal tools for the development of the child's brain.
