Research & Articles

1. Independent, Evidence-based Research

2. The Power of Music
World class music is at the core of The Yello Dyno
to ensure recall in a crisis.
Scientifically based on the Nobel Prize-winning research of Dr. Roger Sperry and the internationally recognized research on children in crisis of Dr. Bruce Perry, The Yello Dyno Method™ ensures involuntary, automatic recall of right action in a crisis.

3. Self-Efficacy
The belief in one's capabilities to organize and execute the sources of action required to manage prospective situations is a key element in the Yello Dyno Curricula. Self-efficacy beliefs have also received increasing attention in educational research, primarily in studies of academic motivation and of self-regulation (Pintrich & Schunk, 1995).
-Albert Bandura, PH. D., Self-Efficacy: The Exercise of Control

4. Rational Decisions Guided by Emotion
The Yello Dyno character, role-models in the videos, plus the lessons taught through music help children learn emotionally as well as logically because emotions are inextricably a part of the personal decision-making process.
- Research by Dr. Dean Shibata, The University of Rochester

5. Using Humor to Balance Negative Emotions
The Yello Dyno Method™ incorporates humor to help children overcome fear.
“…Having a sense of humor is
a key part of our personalities and it can play a powerful role in balancing negative emotions, such as fear…”
- Research by Dr. Dean Shibata, The University of Rochester,
“Call it the brain’s funny bone…” - ABCNEWS affiliate WLS in Chicago and Reuters contributed to this report

6. How The Brain Learns Best:
The Bob-and-Weave Lecture

“…Learning requires attention. And attention is mediated by specific parts of the brain. If a child hears only factual information, she will fatigue within minutes. Only four to eight minutes of pure factual lecture can be tolerated before the brain seeks other stimuli, either internal (e.g., daydreaming) or external (Who is that walking down the hall?)…“
Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D., “How The Brain Learns Best”, Instructor Magazine

7. The Importance of Play in Learning
Play takes many forms, but the heart of play is pleasure — an important component in learning.
Through play, Yello Dyno teaches children key lessons that can save their lives. "Your children learn simple lyrics attached to memorable songs. They are left with a joyous image of running like the wind... but in a time of crisis these lyrics come right back and they act on them to stay safe."
- David Ham, songwriter of the Can't Fool Me! CD

8. Children Can be Attentive and Receptive or Incapable of Learning
“…A child's capacity to learn in any given moment is determined by internal rhythms…In some of these states we are attentive and receptive (e.g., calm and satisfied), while in other states we are incapable of learning (e.g., when asleep, exhausted, sad, afraid)…”
- Research by Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D.,
