What Is Brain Training?
Brain training helps people learn and process information better kind of like preparation for a sports event. Certain brain training exercises could even increase IQ by 15%. If your child struggles with school or you have difficulties concentrating or learning, weak cognitive processing skills may be to blame. Brain Works programs focus on strengthening these skills, including concentration, memory, and comprehension.
Who Can Benefit from Brain Training?
Anyone can benefit from Brain Works brain training no matter their age. Those with learning disabilities will especially see vast improvements in their cognitive skills. Often, these learning disorders are due to processing deficits. In other words, learning takes too much conscious effort to comprehend reading or math problems.
While a fluent reader doesn’t need to sound out each word, for instance, someone with a learning disorder may have to do so. Through our testing, we may find that a student’s crucial brain skills, including attention, memory, auditory and visual processing, and processing speed, may need to be strengthened.

Processing skills will become automatic by shifting them into the subconscious which can happen through a strategy called “loading,” which requires students to do multiple tasks at once. They start with two, and after those get mastered, we add a third task, and then a fourth, and so on. The theory is that the conscious mind can only handle a limited number of functions at a time.
How Brain Training Can Help
Current intelligence doesn’t give us the baseline for how our student’s brain develops, and healthy development is not something guaranteed in life. Brain Works detects cognitive processing weaknesses through specialized testing. The process assists us in finding where they need the most help. Even the most active and restless students will enjoy the cognitive training method.
Their potential for learning improves, and the student’s confidence soars as they participate in a series of fun and challenging hands-on, mentally and physically stimulating exercises. These are individually curated to increase the connective ability between the essential processing skills.
Brain Training Isn’t Traditional Tutoring
Brain Works doesn’t just repeat information about a specific subject, which may be quickly forgotten if learned at all. We use proven, hands-on methods that provide permanent improvements to brain functioning, so their learning process gets enhanced for a lifetime. Brain Works differs from traditional tutoring programs in these critical ways. We want to ensure proper learning techniques to get students through not only class but through life.
