What's It Like To Go Through a Brain Works Program?

Basically, it looks like this: You will discover precisely the weaknesses and strengths that have lead to all the progress sucesses (and challenges) you or your student have been going through.

 The Brain Works Experience

  Step 1

Step 1Contact a Brain Works Location Near You

The first step is to contact a Brain Works location near you and schedule a time for a Cognitive Skills Assessment. If you’re not ready to schedule an assessment, contact us anyway. You can ask for a free brain training demonstration, or set up a time to meet with the location Director and chat about any questions you might have.

  Step 2

Step 1Take a Cognitive Skills Assessment

The Cognitive Skills Assessment is foundational to everything we do. Administered at a Brain Works location, the test takes about an hour and allows us to identify which cognitive skills are strong, and which are weak. It’s how we customize our programs to work on any cognitive weaknesses that are making life harder than it needs to be.

  Step 3

Step 1Receive Your FREE Consultation

A few days later, you’ll return to the location and meet with the Director to go over assessment results. For many families, the consultation provides that “Aha!” kind of moment when everything suddenly makes sense. You’ll see exactly how unique brain skill strengths and weaknesses are behind many of the successes—and struggles—you or your child have been experiencing.

  Step 4

Step 1Begin Training

We identified cognitive weaknesses with the assessment; now we target those weak skills with intense mental exercise. You (or your child) will work face to face with a Brain Works brain trainer about an hour a day for 12-32 weeks (depending on the program). Our trainers make each session fun while ensuring the most effective workout possible.

  Step 5

Step 1Take the Final Cognitive Skills Assessment

After training, we’ll conduct a second cognitive assessment. This final test lets us measure changes in cognitive performance. It’s how we know that, on average, how many of our students have gained about 15 points in IQ*, “moved up” an average of 30 “places” out of 100 in memory skills, and that struggling readers have gained more than three years in reading skills after about 72 hours of brain training. These statistics are based on the average before-test and after-test results of thousands of students, without a control group. *Individual results may vary - you may see more or less improvement in IQ and/or cognitive skills following your program.
