Brain Training Services in Utah
At Brain Works, we teach your child how to learn. Our programs differ from private tutoring in that they don’t focus on a particular lesson or topic, but the cognitive skills required to think, learn, read, and memorize. Unlike tutoring, we get to the root of learning difficulties and the neurological processes involved in acquiring new skills and information.
Since 2007 Brain Works continues to pursue its mission of helping people throughout Utah learn.
How Our Programs Work
The Brain Works Program is fun and exciting with serious goals to obtain. The average student will take about 6 months to complete the training needed to make a lifelong change. In this 6-month brain training process, we seek a 2 to 3-year scholastic and learning ability improvement. In most situations, the training exercises need to be conducted a total of 5 times per week for about one hour. We can usually involve a parent or loved one to participate in exercises at home.
In our most common program, we conduct one weekly office session with a student and parent. In these sessions, the parent becomes trained while working with a Brain Works instructor. This allows the parent to follow through with 4 additional home sessions. Other program options would include up to 4 office sessions per week, making for fewer home sessions. We currently offer programs from 1 to 4 office sessions per week with the remaining sessions conducted at home to reach 5 weekly sessions.
More About How Our Programs Work
Students can learn to improve their outlook, behavior, and articulation to overcome challenges. We start with a free assessment of your child and the root causes of their struggles. With effective cognitive skill training, they have more potential to succeed in reading programs and in other subjects in school.
Our cognitive training program focuses on a few key aspects.
A processing deficit involving memory, attention, or auditory or visual processing can have significant impacts on reading and learning. For example, all processing skills are needed for reading fluency. Visualization, integration, and processing speed are also important skills that Brain Works improves.
“How Learning Works” is a key target of our cognitive training protocol. It doesn’t focus on a single-subject tutor, but rather how one processes the information obtained through their senses. Our assessment can determine what cognitive skills your child needs work on in under two hours.
The tens of billions of neurons in the brain are interconnected, and each brain cell can have over 1,000 branches. One cell can have thousands of connections. The more there are, the stronger your neural pathways. Stronger pathways mean the brain is more efficient at processing the information it receives. Mental exercise and problem-solving are just a couple ways to train the brain.
Children who lack processing skills often avoid homework or a tutoring center altogether. They often feel disappointment, uncertainty, and a lack of acceptance. It’s not uncommon for one to realize their struggles, but not know the solution. Brain Works quickly identifies processing inefficiencies and works to train and strengthen cognitive skills.
