The Most Powerful Computer In The World

That’s what your brain is. Even the fastest supercomputers in the world was born in the brain of someone before it became a reality. At birth, a person has 100 billion neurons in the brain with each one linked to as many as 150,000 other neurons. By age 3, you have double that number. Like any computer, the brain needs to be properly programmed to function at peak efficiency. That is what brain training does.

Understanding Neuroplasticity

Brain training actually changes the physical structure of the brain. While once thought impossible, new research proves that intelligence can be improved because of what is called Neuroplasticity which defines the brain’s ability to grow and change in response to appropriate stimulation.

Cognitive training works the underlying skills that the brain uses to function optimally. The brain’s ability to change continues throughout a person’s lifetime, but the biggest gains in learning ability come when training takes advantage of the window of opportunity during the developmental years. This is why it is best to engage in this training during childhood.

Every parent wants their child to be smarter and that is why we start brain training in children from as early as possible. Give us a call today to see how we can optimize your child’s cognitive abilities.

Cognitive abilities are developed with carefully structured exercises that build one aptitude at a time. Perceptual skills are strengthened through a series of physical activities that repetitively build the neural ‘bridges’ necessary to achieve control of mind over body. These procedures literally ‘bulk up’ attention, memory, rule-following, concept formation, context comprehension, process orientation and the learner’s other essential thinking skills.

Each student’s profile of cognitive abilities indicates areas for improvement, while giving teachers and parents a specific snapshot of the student’s strengths, weaknesses and learning style preferences.
Structure of Intellect ( SOI )Test
Benefits of SOI – Developing thinkers
  • Faster thinking and improves memory function
  • Advances numerical & sequencing abilities – help in math’s, outline a story, follow rules for projects
  • Enhances logical reasoning
  • Improves visualization methods
  • Increase academic performance & learning potential
  • Builds foundation for high level thinking
  • Creative with ideas
  • Strengthen attention, focus & concentration
  • Develop reading and comprehension Skills
  • Enhanced oral language Skills
  • Develops visual skills (closure and perception)
  • Experiential learner – Problem solver

Learning is dependent on more than just the teacher and the curriculum, but the student’s ability to learn.

Besides helping ordinary children to gain an advantage in school and in life, brain training is also widely used to help overcome brain-related problems such as:

Attention, Focus & Concentration

ADHD is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder, it usually emerges predominantly in early childhood before seven years old and impairs responses from speech to attentiveness to socialization.

Cognitive Weaknesses In Primary- Schoolers

Young students are always filled with an enthusiasm for learning. However, undetected cognitive skills weaknessese hiding beneath that enthusiasm is waiting to rob them of their joy of learning. We can help detect and fix that.

Dyslexia & Reading Challenges

Reading is the gateway to learning. From birth to age 7, development of reading skills is crucial. Developmental delays in this area would result in various forms of learning difficulties for a child.

Executive Functions

Executive functions have a tremendous impact on our capacity to learn new information, perform what we already know, and adapt to new environments and challenges. It is crucial for the development of attentional control, future-oriented intentional problem-solving, and self-regulation of emotion.
