Tutoring re-teaches information that wasn't grasped the first time around. Before investing in tutoring, a parent should ask, "Why didn't my child grasp this the first time it was taught?" Unless the answer is obvious (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. If one or more weak cognitive skills are causing your child's struggle, tutoring attempts to accommodate that weakness, 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 from now on.
If your child needs help performing in school, the answer is yes. BrainRx is the outgrowth of 40 years of research and clinical trials. LearningRx, the parent company of BrainRx, has employed these brain training methods with more than 30,000 children and adults of all ages in brain training centers throughout the United States. BrainRx is now making this training available to students across the globe. To learn more about results and data related to our brain training programs, click here.
In many cases, the answer is yes. This is because BrainRx strengthens the cognitive weaknesses that are linked to attention disorders. Neuroscience shows that by targeting and stimulating the underactive region of the brain responsible for the characteristics of inattention, that attention can be strengthened. 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.
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.
Scientific research has demonstrated that the brain is adaptable and capable of learning throughout life. This is termed neuroplasticity. Play Attention allows the user to view the attentive state in real-time. Over time, through deliberate practice, Play Attention students can learn to increase focus and concentration. Deliberate practice entails setting goals to improve skill performance. The interactive exercises also challenge Play Attention students to improve memory, finishing tasks, visual tracking, and filtering out distractions. Gradually, even ADHD students can retain the skills necessary to be successful in the classroom, work, and home.
Play Attention is not clinical neuro or bio feedback. Neurofeedback is based on the theory that ADHD persons have disregulated brainwave patterns. Neurofeedback practitioners contend that normalizing these abnormal brainwave patterns can eliminate ADHD symptoms. Play Attention does not strive to change brainwave patterns. Changing brainwave patterns does not insure that one can become more organized, have better short-term memory, ignore distractions, or even balance one's check book in a normal amount of time. These are skills that must be learned and do not automatically appear after neurofeedback training. Play Attention teaches these skills and insures transfer to the workplace and classroom.
Typically within the first 30 days, minor changes will appear. These may include better listening skills, beginning homework on one's own, or staying more organized. It is important to understand that these are significant positive leaps forward for ADHD students and must be rewarded/reinforced so that they are likely to be repeated.
You decided to place your child on medication with a healthcare provider. Use of medication is a medical decision and must be decided under advisement of your healthcare provider. It is important to realize that medication does not teach skills or behaviors. Play Attention is an educational skill building tool that also teaches students to improve behaviors. Once these skills are learned, frequently the need for medication greatly diminishes. However, you must discuss the matter with your healthcare provider regarding changes to medication or any medical issues.
Conservatively, 5% to 7% of all children have ADHD. Roughly 60% to 70% of those children will carry their attention problems into adulthood. The inability to finish assignments, stay organized, remember things, or become easily distracted follow children into adulthood where it's estimated billions of dollars are lost due to these problems. Play Attention teaches organization, improves memory, trains you to complete tasks and become less distracted. These skills are vitally important success at either school or the workplace. Additionally, we have the Academic Bridge that teaches you how to finish homework or balance your checkbook in appropriate times. This superior tool is a tremendous asset when learning to complete tasks vitally important to success at work or school.
Parents often clearly understand that ADHD impairs their child's ability to make lasting friendships. Poor social skills are closely intertwined with attention problems. Play Attention has a great Social Skills program that teaches social cues and increases self-esteem. Play Attention is a wonderful tool to help build lasting friendships.
Cursive is an individual type of writing. Those who join this course are taught how to write in cursive, irrespective of their original writing style. Handwriting improvement is not a part of this course. But, ours is a handwriting improvement course, where repair of flaws is done for any style in which the individual writes be it print, cursive, italics or any other.
We have served more than 4, 00,000 students with 100% results across 1000+ centers in different countries and have never failed by far. The technique used by us is scientific and foolproof. Our trainers focus 100% on identified technical errors and repair them.
We have been working on handwriting improvement for over 1.5 decades; hence, it is most unlikely to happen. Nevertheless, if it does happen in a rare case, our experts will happily devote 3-4 days extra with the student. We will readily refund the fee for the course if the improvement is still not seen.
Yes, the speed of the child will come down, after the course, but after 10- 15 days of practice the child will be able to come to its natural speed. If you want to increase the writing speed of your child, you can choose our speed writing course too.
Every child's handwriting problems are different and so are the requirements. Our experts analyze and identify individual flaws in one's writing and tutor to repair accordingly. It therefore becomes mandatory for the trainer to give personal attention to every child.
You can improve your handwriting of print style because we only repair the flaws affecting the legibility in any type of handwriting be it print, cursive or italics, without changing the individual's writing style. To facilitate the same, we have exclusive training methods and material for all types of handwriting.
Yes, the improvement is permanent, if the students consciously follow the instructions given to them by the teacher for at least 3 months.
Yes, our fee is high at the face value. Our training procedures are backed-up with 16 years of Research and Development. Every trainer of ours is well trained and certified. Our training process is customized to meet the needs of individual handwriting. Once you see the results you will feel that our fee is just right.
