What is Brain Training?
Cognitive skill training, or brain training, targets and strengthens weak cognitive skills through mental exercises performed one on one with your personal brain trainer. Cognitive skills work together like cogs in a machine to move incoming information into our learned knowledge bank. Just one weak cognitive skill can make it difficult for the brain to grasp and retain information, regardless of how many times that information is taught or explained by a teacher, tutor, or parent.
BrainFitU’s PACE program was developed by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals to quickly and significantly build those underlying mental skills that are so vital to academic success. It is based on the best scientific research available and is continually modified to incorporate new scientific data. PACE brain training targets and trains those weak cognitive skills that are most likely to have a meaningful impact on a person’s learning and work performance. These skills include attention and concentration, memory, processing speed, problem solving, visual processing, phonetic awareness, and comprehension.
Master the Code
BrainFitU’s Master the Code (MTC) is a revolutionary “sound-to-code” reading program modeled after the process by which spoken language is first learned. Students are averaging over four years of reading skill improvement in less than five months. MTC is designed to integrate with and build upon the BrainFitU brain training cognitive skills enhancement program. Studies suggest that as many as 85% of students testing low on reading proficiency also have weak underlying cognitive skills, in particular, auditory processing skills.
