I am not sure if this is the best forum for this question. I wasn't sure where it would be most appropriate to ask.
I have read that EFT, or emotional freedom technique, is based upon tapping accupuncture points with self-talk to help with diverse issues.
Here is my question:
Do you believe it would be helpful or harmful to play a tapping game (EFT) with children to improve learning? The tapping points would include the areas near these points (the children themselves do the tapping): in this order== UB2, GB1, ST2, GV26, CV24, CV22 & KD27, LV14. The game is meant to be fun, supportive, and done while singing a rhyming song (Tom Tinker, Eye Winker, Nose Dripper, Mouth Eater, Chin Chomper, ....).
Background: I am a special education teacher in public elementary school. My students have developmental delays, moderate to severe, or multiple disabilities. I use a variety of multi-sensory teaching/learning strategies.
If you think this EFT strategy is inapporpriate or ineffective, could you recommend another strategy that would be supportive and encourage learning (especially retention of learning)?
