The Brain Booster activity cards outline a set of enrichment activities that are intended to provide targeted positive activation of key systems in the brain. The four broad categories of activities are matched to the four functional domains of the brain outlined by Dr. Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model.
These activities support self-regulation and sensory integration when used in the context of positive relationships. The cards allow therapists, educators, parents, and caregivers to select an activity that meets the developmental needs of the child. The cards have been developed over several years at Hull Services with the input of teachers, clinicians, and program staff.
Brain Booster Activity Cards are available for purchase on Amazon – $60

“I love the Brain Booster Deck! I have used it with colleagues, children and families to develop new tools and routines for regulation that fit with the client’s preferences. The card-deck format makes them so easy to shuffle and turn into matching and turn-taking games with children. The clear labels and explanations make the rationale for each activity accessible to caregivers. They have a permanent place in my therapy ‘toolbox’!” ~ Julia Bantimba, Occupational Therapist Napa Infant Parent Mental Health Faculty, Berkeley, CA
“The Neurodeck Brain Boosters are a fantastic ‘at your fingertip’ resource to quickly find fun and creative activities and interventions that can help children and families calm down and manage their big feelings in the moment.
