Success Stories

Here are some recent emails:

“He has really blossomed in this program. He is picking up books to read, checking them out of the library on his own and getting a lot of meaning out of what he is reading. He is surprising me every day now with his reading!”

“We’ve seen so many gains in his expressive language. And his teacher’s have at school as well. He talks about what he wants to do. He’s more conversational and speaks in fuller sentences. :)”

Unlock Potential With Science

An opportunity to rewire your child’s learning

Neuroscience Goes Mainstream

The book The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge, published in 2007, was the first best seller to talk about the over-looked opportunity to rewire learning with mental exercise.

This important book relays all kinds of astonishing stories of brain rewiring and rebirth after strokes and other brain injury.

For the last 150 years the working theory of the brain was that it was fixed, like a computer.

But now we know that this is not true, it is adaptive and capable of great change. In fact, like all parts of the body, it wants to “heal” and function better, if shown how.

Because of this profound opportunity to transform lives, Dr. Norman Doidge describes brain plasticity as the most important scientific discovery of the 20th century.

PBS Documentary

Then came Brain Fitness for Kids, the New Science of Learning, a documentary by PBS about Fast ForWord software — how it was developed, how the science works, and what results clinicians are seeing.

This recognition by the mainstream media about the importance of the brain plasticity opportunity has ignited interest in brain based interventions to help learning by working directly on the underlying cognitive impediments.
