What is Brain Training?
Brain training is a science-based approach to improving the function of the brain and improving cognitive development.
Brain training targets cognitive skills, such as executive function. Cognitive proficiency allows the brain to read, learn, remember, reason and focus.
Cognitive skills and the brain’s efficiency and effectiveness can be negatively impacted by many different factors - injuries, birth complications, disease, adoption, and trauma. An inefficient or ineffective brain can lead to a multitude of developmental, learning, physical and emotional challenges.
Fortunately, the brain has an amazing ability to change and adapt - an ability called neuroplasticity. Through brain training, people can bolster their cognitive abilities, improve their emotional reserve and improve their physical capabilities.
Brain Training for Success
Brain training can improve outcomes for people of all ages, including children and adults who find themselves struggling in academics, recovering from concussions, or just looking to keep a sharp mind. Brain training changes lives.
Brain Train America has created a unique approach to brain training that helps our clients overcome their challenges and reach their potential. Our brain training programs focus on training the brain’s complex signaling system. In strengthening neurological pathways, we are able to improve the brain’s ability to capture, process and retain information and instruction.
Skilled in an unmatched variety of brain training methods, our brain training experts are well-equipped to evaluate the challenges a person is facing, draw on actual data and years of experience, determine an appropriate course of action, and provide a comprehensive plan for brain training success.
Benefits of Brain Training
Everyone can benefit from brain training.
Many of our brain training clients are young people who come to Brain Train America to address executive functioning issues or cognitive weaknesses that are affecting them in class or on the field. Brain Train America works often with athletes who have recently experienced their first concussion or traumatic brain injury. We also work with young clients who seek brain training to address executive functioning and self-regulation skills affected by impairments such as ADHD and Dyslexia.
But because cognitive weaknesses are not necessarily addressed by time, children with reading, learning, reasoning, attention or memory issues grow into adults with the similar struggles. Many of our brain training clients are, in fact, adults of all ages and stages of life, from executives and professors, to senior citizens.
No matter how good you are, you can always be better. Through brain training, we have truly changed lives of individuals and families. Here’s a breakdown of many of the issues brain training is able to address:
- Auditory Processing Disorder
- Reading Comprehension
- Executive Function Disorders
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Side effects of Lyme disease (“brain fog”, fatigue, etc.)
- Adoption (Fight/Flight)
- Emotional Regulation
- Eye-Hand/Foot Coordination
- Reaction Speed
Beyond helping our brain training clients address serious challenges such as ADHD and concussion recovery, we have witnessed significant improvements in the lives of brain training clients, including:
