We specialize in one-on-one brain training to develop and strengthen the underlying skills also known as cognitive skills that are necessary to think, remember and learn.
According to the National Institute of Health and the Department of Education,
80% of Learning Issues are due to weak cognitive skills.
How Cognitive Skills Affect Learning
Memory - The mental capacity to store, retain and retrieve information. If this skill is weak or under developed learning will suffer as the information will not be remembered long enough to process and store.
Attention - The ability to stay focused on a task for an extended period of time. When this skill is weak important information is missed and careless mistakes are made affecting many areas of life, including home and school.
Processing Speed - The skill necessary for understanding new concepts and performing mental tasks quickly. If this skill is underdeveloped learning new information is challenging and it can affect other cognitive skills too.
Auditory Processing - How the brain analyzes and decodes the sounds of speech. Weak auditory analysis skills will lead to reading, spelling and comprehension issues.
Visual Processing - The aptitude necessary to process visual images and help create mental images as well. Reading comprehension and math, especially word problems, will suffer if this skill lacks proficiency.
Logic and Reasoning - The competence to reason, think, plan, solve problems and form concepts.
These Cognitive Skills can be improved by using proper training methods that target, modify and develop the brain to improve deficiencies. The fastest and most efficient way to strengthen these skills is through one-on-one brain training.
Our one-on-one, non academic, Brain Training Programs focus on enhancing and improving these cognitive skills to help make learning easier, faster and more efficient.
How Will I Know If My Child Has Weak Cognitive Skills?
We recommend students complete a Cognitive Skills assessment to see what skills they are deficient in. It also establishes a baseline for the student so that we can measure their gains after training.
