Does your child struggle in school?

Have you tried traditional tutoring for your child, and not had the success you'd hoped for?

Does your child have an IEP, but you are not satisfied that the school is doing all they can to help?

Brain Spring Learning may be able to help!

Through our Student Transformation System™, we can improve your child's ability to learn, by helping your child's brain develop new pathways to improve the cognitive skills necessary for learning through brain training. Then, we take the next step and work on specific academic goals set by you and your child's teacher.

Not just Tutoring

This is more than traditional tutoring, which teaches new knowledge and academic skills. If the appropriate cognitive (thinking) skills are not fully developed relative to the age of the child, the quality and/or quantity of the tutoring will not matter much. That's where Brain Spring Learning can help. The Student Transformation System integrates cognitive skills training (a.k.a. brain training) with focused attention on academic goals in collaboration with the child's parents and teacher(s). The brain training enables the learning to take place more effectively.

Not Just Computer Games

The products and services offered by Brain Spring Learning take into account the interdependence of the cognitive skills, the principle that the exercises need to be kept fresh and challenging in order for brain training to be effective, and the recognition that consistent and disciplined execution is required to achieve the desired results. Occasional execution of video games or even random brain training games will not achieve these results.

Noted neuroscientist Dr. Elkhonon Goldberg addressed these points in an interview in March of 2011, when he stated:

"In order to be effective, the menu of cognitive exercise has to be diverse. One needs a diverse menu of novel cognitive activities. And one has to make sure that one refreshes one's menu of mental activities all the time, so that things don't become staid and stagnant, so that there is always a novelty factor. No single parlor activity like Sudoku or crossword puzzles or anything of that nature meets the requirement of diversity. What these cognitive exercises try to accomplish is a whole fleet of activities, each targeting a particular aspect of cognition, that in combination will cover the whole waterfront."
