Who we can help
We believe every individual is made with immense potential. Our mission is to unlock these potentials, enhance them and help the individual achieve greater goals in life. We believe that, a learner should never be defined or withheld from learning due to learning difficulties. But we strive on identifying the difficulties and then strengthening them together with their strengths to broaden their horizon of possibilities. We are committed to providing undivided attention to our students by means of our unique one on one cognitive training program. By doing so we yearn that each of our students attains their full potential to achieve great things for themselves, for the community and for the nation.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are cognitive skills?
There are seven categories of cognitive skills. When weak, they contribute to struggles with thinking, reading, learning, memory, and attention. Our program targets and strengthens these skills:
- Long-term Memory: The ability to recall information that was stored in the past.
- Processing Speed: It refers to cognitive efficiency, more specifically the speed of processing simple concepts.
- Logic & Reasoning: The ability to reason, form concepts, and solve problems using unfamiliar information or new procedures.
- Short-term Memory: The ability to hold information in immediate awareness while simultaneously performing a mental operation.
- Visual processing: The ability to perceive, analyze, and think in visual images.
- Auditory processing (phonemic awareness): The ability to analyze, blend, and segment sounds.
- Attention (three types): Sustained attention is the ability to stay on task for an extended period of time; selective attention is the ability to stay focused and not get distracted; divided attention is the ability to handle more than one task at a time.
What is the difference between Tutoring and Brain Training?
Tutoring focuses on re-teaching information that wasn’t grasped or understood the first time around. A question every parent must ask before investing in tutoring is, “Why didn’t my child grasp this the first time it was taught?” Unless there is an obvious reason, (such as missing school for an extended period of time), tutoring may not be the answer. In fact, studies show that in 8 out of 10 cases, learning struggles are caused by weak cognitive skills, not because information was not presented well and needs to be re-taught. Tutoring attempts to accommodate with the weak cognitive skills, rather than correct it. BrainRx is radically different. Our testing and training is the answer to a different question. When a student is struggling, we ask “How strong is his or her ability to learn?” We don’t accommodate weak skills, we strengthen them. The result? Faster, easier learning!
Can you help someone with ADD or ADHD?
In many cases, the answer is yes. BrainRx strengthens the cognitive weaknesses that are linked to attention disorders. Neuroscience has shown that attention can be strengthened by targeting and stimulating the underactive region of the brain responsible for the characteristics of inattention. Attention is strengthened when a person performs a task requiring attention while exposed to structured distractions. BrainRx provides the right stimuli and environment to strengthen not one but three kinds of attention.
How Does the Program Promote Reading Success?
Many students struggle in reading as a result of cognitive weaknesses. For example, a student who has weak auditory processing skills, cannot concentrate, works too slowly, has poor memory skills or struggles to create good mental images will struggle with reading. By addressing these weaknesses, students are given the skills they need to become successful readers.
