Reading and Writing with Kinestemas

The Kinesthema© Program, also known as LEK (Lectura y Escritura por Kinestemas ©), was created by Spanish neuropsychologist Andrés Marín at the end of the 20th century and published in 2016.This literacy methodology is based on neuroscience and focuses on the use of kinesthetic techniques to enhance learning and increase information retention.

Kinesthetic techniques involve body movement and their use can improve brain plasticity and long-term memory. The Kinestem Reading Method (Lectura y Escritura por Kinestemas© in Spain), or Kinestema© Program (in USA), focuses on using structured body movements to relate abstract concepts to physical action, which facilitates information retention.

According to research conducted by Marín and his team, the Kinestema Program is effective in improving the learning of language-related skills such as writing and reading, both when learning difficulties exist and when they do not. Additionally, students participating in the program report a higher degree of motivation and enjoyment in the learning process.

The program is designed to help children learn to read and write, starting at three years of mental age, in a way that is fun and effective.

The Kinestema© Program is based on a series of principles that are well-supported by the scientific literature.

First, the program is multisensory, which means that it uses a variety of sensory stimuli and their respective memories, such as sound, sight, touch, and movement, to facilitate learning and make it more enjoyable for children.

Second, the program focuses on the development of procedural skills, i.e., those skills necessary to perform specific tasks. This includes skills such as hand-eye coordination, spatial orientation, and motor memory, which benefit from this approach.

In addition, the program uses the trial-and-success method, which gives children the opportunity to learn by doing, thus developing confidence and self-regulation.

Finally, the program is tailored to the needs of each individual child, using the zones of proximal development as a guide. In this way, each child is provided with a level of support appropriate to their developmental level, maximizing their learning and progress in the program.

In summary, the Kinesthema program uses a series of principles, based on scientific literature, that seek to improve children's learning in an effective and personalized way.
