The Brain Trainers believe that dyslexia, ADD and ADHD (to name a few) are not diagnoses, but rather symptoms of other underlying learning problems. Identification of the underlying learning challenge allows those skills to be worked on to improve the brain’s ability to process the data. The programs used by The Brain Trainers promote the ‘rewiring ’of the brain using the science of neural plasticity helping individuals to improve or eliminate these symptoms. The skills addressed include: processing speed, visual processing, short term and long term memory (visual and auditory), auditory analysis, focus and attention, rapid naming/rapid recognition and organization and planning to name a few. Fine motor, gross motor, verbal output, socialization and sensory processing issues are also addressed. Imagine trying to upload a Windows 7 program into a Windows 95 system. It doesn’t work. Children with learning challenges are facing a similar predicament. You have two choices: down grade the data the child is presented using modifications and accommodations OR upgrade their brain. Once a brain is wired correctly, the data is easy to upload! The Brain Trainers have online programs, in house training, distance training via internet video conferencing, screening tests for identification of skill deficits, and consultation services.
