How Does Cognitive Skill Training Differ from Tutoring?
Cognitive skills are those needed to process sensory information. They are important in childhood development and for learning at every stage and grade level. For the most part, cognition requires learning key skills, which help one better remember, analyze, evaluate, and compare information. Cognitive skills training focuses on these underlying skills. On the other hand, tutoring mostly involves repeating information already taught, without addressing the underlying cause of one’s difficulty.
Why Brain Works?
We discover and reveal the root cause of weak processing skills. Then we train and strengthen these skills until properly developed
The Learning Process
The Learning Process aka "How Learning Works" is where it all begins. To understand this process, one must understand the basic mechanics of successful learning. There are three important pieces required, one must have at least an average IQ, be taught well, and have the efficient brain processing skills.
What is brain training? It's what we're known for and what we do best! Come to learn how brain training can improve the quality of life and learning capacity for almost any student. Brain Training is connecting learning to efficient and positive performance.

What Makes Brain Works Different?
By focusing directly on the root cause of learning struggle, which is an underlying weakness in cognitive skills; we help struggling students overcome life-long symptoms of learning disabilities.
Cognitive Skills Training
Brain Works can improve the following:
A student's ability to keep the eyes and mind on a task long enough to gather all pertinent information can have a profound effect on how the student learns.
A vital skill in retention. Cross-Patterning is the epicenter of most processing abilities and allows free open communication between the right and left brain hemispheres.
The skill of movement or sequence. Seeing “b” as “d,” or “p” as “q,” reading “was” as “saw,” writing from right to left and not knowing right from left are all symptoms of low directional skills.
One of the major visual skills needed to perform the act of reading is the ability of the eyes to track. During the act of reading, the eyes must accurately follow the lines of the text and move precisely from one word to the next.
The process of Figure Ground is the ability to focus on the “figure” or the important stimuli against a background of competing stimuli. The volume of stimuli coming to the brain at any given time is incredible.
The ability of the brain to respond within a given time frame. A weak motor match is often a problem for students who have difficulty with reading fluency.
Particularly important in the process of reading. The brain treats each word as a shape. Each word creates its own unique shape, which the student must immediately recognize.
This is the skill we use in determining where we are in relation to our physical and emotional world. Frequently, low positioning will cause an inaccurate perception of one’s relationship with others.
The skill of size is the skill we use in understanding volume. When perception is too large, tasks may be seen as overwhelming. When perception is too small, tasks may be left to the last minute when completion is impossible.
Do you walk them through homework step by step because they have poor focus? We help struggling students overcome life-long symptoms of learning disabilities.
A lack of processing skills makes a student avoid homework; it is difficult, frustrating, they feel disappointed with themselves, and they believe their parents are disappointed as well.
