Frequently Asked Questions

How is Brain Works radically different?. We answer a different question: “How strong is his or her ability to learn?” Our testing and training strengthens the key underlying mental skills that are essential for easy, fast learning instead of trying to compensate for skill weaknesses.

FAQs

What exactly is brain training?

Brain Training is a learning process that trains the cognitive skills used by the brain to think and learn.

Brain Works focuses exclusively on training the underlying cognitive skills that make learning possible.

We provide non-academic training procedures— one-on-one, that target and strengthen the individual student’s core mental abilities (i.e. processing speed, attention, memory, auditory/visual processing, logic and reasoning). These key skills are every student’s foundation for successful learning, and if overlooked, can create lifelong problems.

Throughout our program, students are paired with their own private training specialist. Through this one-on-one relationship, the Brain Works Program is designed to produce big improvements quickly for every individual.

How is Brain Works different from tutoring?

Brain Works is radically different! Tutoring only re-teaches material that should have already been learned; but has yet to be learned.

If skill weakness is the root cause of your child’s learning struggle, tutoring simply cannot correct it!

Before investing in tutoring you should ask, “Why didn’t he/she learn this, the first time it was presented?”

Unless the answer is obvious (such as missing school for an extended period of time), tutoring will likely be a frustrating and expensive choice.

Will this help my child?

Yes! If your child is looking to enhance learning, maximize potential, and learn faster and easier – than, absolutely!

Today’s innovative Brain Works Program is the outgrowth of 30 years of research and clinical trials. Over the past decade we have recorded dramatic results including but not limited to, improved performance in learning, reading, and math skills. This puts us at the top in cognitive skill improvement. Brain Works makes this training available to everyone along the Wasatch Front.

Who can we help?

We can help anyone who wants to learn, read, think faster and easier.

Our cognitive training exercises the brain in the same way that a fitness coach works with your muscles, and results are similar – more strength to accomplish the task.

We love to help anyone looking for an edge: students of all ages facing new challenges, career professionals looking for a competitive advantage, or those simply wanting to keep or refresh their mental edge for a fun, productive life.

Can you help my child with ADD or ADHD?

How does this program promote reading success?

Many students do not bring sufficient cognitive skills to the task of learning to read quickly and efficiently.

Even if the reading code <(em>letter sounds and combinations) is taught completely and sequentially, strong cognitive skills must be in place.

A student with a severe auditory processing deficiency, one who cannot concentrate adequately, works too slowly, has poor memory skills, or cannot create good mental images, will complete lessons slowly or exhibit poor retention.

If such a student completes our program, the stronger cognitive skills that result enable the student to learn rapidly, read faster, comprehend and retain more as they read.

Will my child outgrow their struggles?

Parents, the reality is . . . waiting for your child to “grow out of” learning, reading, or attention difficulties is not really an option.

Learning struggles rarely go away with time. On the contrary, waiting and hoping a problem will go away without appropriate intervention will only lead to frustration, poor grades, low motivation, and time wasted in school.

What should you do? If you sense a struggle, find help now before an undiscovered learning weakness permanently limits your child’s potential. There are easy, affordable steps you can take. If you fear that your child has a learning disability the first step is to have his or her cognitive skills tested. Cognitive skills testing will uncover the source of the struggle, and guide you to a training strategy that can make the difference.

So, the reality is: “Intelligence is not fixed or unchanging!”

Potential is the possibility that something can develop or become actual. Obviously your child has the potential to actually improve reading, spelling, comprehension, and change overall intelligence, as science now proves. The “gap” between untapped potential and a child’s performance can be closed with the right brain training. If this weren’t possible any efforts aimed at improvement—study, practice, drills—would be meaningless. Tell that to the winner of the school spelling bee, accomplished musician, or star athlete! What can you do? Uncover the source of what’s keeping your child’s full potential from being released. Have his or her cognitive skills tested to reveal these “gaps” caused by cognitive weaknesses. The test results will guide you to a powerful training strategy to help your child realize his or her own potential. If cognitive skills weaknesses are at the root of your child’s trouble, traditional solutions like tutoring might not be the answer.

Is Brain Works worth the cost?

Brain Works = A Smart Move!

The Brain Works Program <(em>completed “one-on-one” in a coaching environment) has the potential to raise IQ by an average of 15 to 20 points, which statistics link to higher salaries.

In fact, a study by the US Department of Labor Statistics showed that a gain of even 10 IQ points can result in a $9,000 to $18,000 increase in annual earnings. Consider the financial advantage you are giving to your child, over the course of their lifetime!

Does it last?

Our programs create results that are dramatic and lasting and we’ve got the numbers to prove it!

Using the “gold standard” of cognitive skills testing – the Woodcock Johnson Test, we measure the cognitive skills of every client before and after brain training. Whenever possible, we measure again a full year later.

What is Brain Works?

Brain Works isn’t tutoring! Brain Works is a brain processing development program.

  • What We Do
    The Brain Works program enhances the learning process by developing cognitive skills.
  • The Learning Process
    The Learning Process has two pieces. First, we must be taught well. Second, our mind must turn teachning into learning. Traditional school provides the first piece. Brain Training develops the second piece.
  • Why Brain Works?
    More exposure to learning will not get the roots of the learning problems. Brain Works cognitive training will.
  • FREE Assessment
    In 2 hours or less we will identify the root cause, provide realistic expectations of the program, and offer you a solution.
Who can we help?

tudents of all ages! Brain Works brain training has the power to improve the quality of life and learning for almost any student regardless of their current level of learning or reading success.

At Brain Works, we are committed to helping your child improve their thinking and brain function: we teach your child how to learn.

Each of us is born with a wonderful mind…

Unfortunately, our mind doesn’t come with an owner’s manual. Brain Works uses a method that makes a child aware of how their brain receives, processes, and stores information, thus helping them learn.

When a child struggles with learning, traits develop that markedly slow or stop their willingness to keep trying. They can appear lazy, but they feel like a victim with no control. Brain Works has methods that help your child improve their attitude and behavior. With Brain Works, your child learns how to navigate their world and how to articulate their needs and overcome barriers. The resulting change is permanent and life-altering.

Contact us today to start your child on the path to better learning.
