WHAT WE DO

How it works

Four steps to better learning:

1. Assessment

Each student’s unique cognitive strengths and weaknesses are identified with the Gibson Test of Brain Skills.

2. Consultation

You’ll learn which cognitive strengths and weaknesses are behind many of the struggles and successes you or your child have been experiencing.

3. Training

One-on-one sessions with a BrainRx brain trainer. This one-on-one training is supplemented with in-center digital brain training. Most people report improvements (including higher grades, less time doing homework, less overall frustration, greater confidence, improvements in memory or attention) even before finishing the program.

4. Final testing

We test the cognitive skills once again after training, so we can measure improvements in brain performance.

Skills Assessment

 

We use The Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills to identify each student’s unique cognitive skill strengths and weaknesses. This is the first step to strengthening skills and finding a lasting solution to any cognitive-related barriers.

The Gibson Test:

  • Is non-invasive
  • Is widely used by professionals including psychologists, educators, neurologists,
    audiologists, speech and language professionals, and cognitive training specialists
    around the world
  • Can be done in English or Afrikaans
  • Measures a wide range of cognitive skills
  • Takes less than an hour to complete
  • Includes a detailed feedback consultation

The following skills are assessed

  • Working memory
  • Logic and reasoning
  • Attention
  • Processing speed
  • Visual processing
  • Auditory processing
  • Long-Term Memory
‘80% of all learning struggles are the result of weak cognitive skills’
