Parents Say ... Now He’s More Focused

by Harlan K. (Adam, Age 12)

"Before BrainWare Safari, Adam used to drift away a lot and get distracted when he was doing challenging problems, especially in math. Now he's more focused. We're really pleased with that. It's a wonderful program."

Educators Say ... It Was Rewarding to Watch Students Overcome Obstacles to Their Reading Development

by Gaby Chapman, English Teacher, CA

"As an English teacher in a small charter school (6th through 12th grades), I had students with a variety of levels of difficulty with reading and dyslexia. They had challenges with decoding, visual tracking, short-term memory, and/or timing. One was reading six levels below grade. I learned about BrainWare Safari and it seemed to be something we could easily incorporate into our program. The four students who used it were able to make significant progress. One 6th grader who was highly motivated moved from the lowest in the class to a strong reader. The 8th grader improved her reading fluency and also gained a lot of confidence from the program, volunteering to give a speech at 8th grade graduation. It was very rewarding to watch these students overcome some of the obstacles to their reading development and become more engaged in their books."

Clinicians Say ... Strengthens Students’ Underlying Cognitive Skills

by Colleen Bain, Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids

"I use BrainWare Safari as one of my tools to transform students into dynamic independent learners. This program has proven itself time and time again to help strengthen a student's underlying cognitive skill set. A lot of my students enjoy using this program. I often recommend it for students who need strengthening within auditory and/or visual memory in addition to other areas."

Parents Say ... An Alternative to Video Games

by Thao D. (Christian, Age 9)

"The kids nowadays are really into computers and this is an alternative to video games. It helps improve their learning and keeps them busy and they're having fun. What else could you ask for?"

Educators Say ... Helping Our Students Close Academic Gaps

by Anne Budicin, Resource Teacher, Glenwood School

"Because of our students' backgrounds, we are always striving to provide them with opportunities that close academic gaps and help them achieve their true potential. BrainWare Safari is an essential part of achieving this. It helped our students improve their shor-term, long-term and working memory. Teachers have seen improvement in attentiveness during lessons and noted better recall of information. Ultimately, BrainWare Safari helps to prepare our students for high school and beyond by bridging those gaps in achievement and cognitive processing."

Adult Users Say ... If I’d Had It Earlier, School Would Have Been Much Less Difficult

by Joshua Woodward, MSW, Chicago, IL

"I spent the better part of my years in grammar school in "LD" classes, where I wasn't challenged. I suffered when I made the transition to "Mainstream" classes. My performance was average at best, but I was able to teach myself the necessary skills to be as successful as my peers and did the same at all of the subsequent transitions to junior high, high school, college and graduate school. After having worked through BrainWare Safari, I can attest to its usability as well as playability. Had I been given such a tool in my early stages of learning, i blelieve my time in school would have been less difficult."

Educators Say ... I Just Want to Say Thank You

by Corinne Lake, Valley Christian Junior High

"Twice a week student groups report to a facility with laptops that have the BrainWare Safari software. They bascially play games, but in the meantime are developing a mastery level at paying close attention to details and memory skill development. I just want to say thank you. The stuents are being helped and are enjoying the process very much. I think many students can benefit from this affordable software and will be recommending it to parents for giving their children some activity in the summer that is fun and educational."

Parents Say ... Grades Have Improved

by Mary H. (Philip, Age 10)

"Whereas before Philip would come home and want to do other things because homework was too hard or would take too long. Now he comes home and does it. And the best part is his grades have improved."

Educators Say ... Learning Software Finally Worth Buying

by Michael Strong, Author of "The Habit of Thought"

"In a world of hype regarding learning games and brain development software, BrainWare Safari is the software product most likely to result in significant real gains in IQ scores, when used as recommended and complemented by a healthy physical, emotional, and social environment. Learning software has finally become worth buying."

Parents Say ... Skills Quickly Transferred to Other Things

by Matt H., Father of a 7-Year-Old with Autism

"At the end of first grade, my son's teacher noted that, though he did exceptionally well academically, he had two major gaps--his ability to focus and his abstract thinking skills. Shortly thereafter, I heard about BrainWare Safari and we decided to give it a try. At first, the product frustrated my son. My wife worked with him on Rhythm Ribbet, just listening to the beat. A few minutes later, he ran into the kitchen screaming, 'I did it! I did it!" About two days later, I saw something amazing. My son was working on BrainWare Safari and he would visibly focus. He would lean forward in the chair and his entire expression would change. We had never seen this before from him. He quickly transferred this skill to other things--homework, games, puzzles. We thank you for an amazing product."
