Educators Say ... It Meets Students’ Brain Development Needs

by Stephanie Brown, Reading & Math Coach, IN

"With BrainWare Safari, my students had the opportunity to develop their cognitive skills while playing intellectual games that the program provided. The students were highly motivated, with little exception, throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend use of BrainWare Safari in schools. It meets students' brain development needs while working through a technology medium that students crave. It truly was a wonderful experience."

Homeschooling Parents Say ... One Product That Can Help All Three Sons

by Lisa M., Homeschooling Mother of 3 Boys

"I am so glad I purchased BrainWare Safari! My three sons can each work at their own pace, challenging themselves to do better at each level! It is helping one son with attention span, another with patience and diligence, and another with his focus and attention to detail. What a great thing to have one product that can help all three of my very individual sons! And, by the way although my oldest has not yet admitted to having fun, I find him smiling while working on the program!"

Parents Say ... They Feel They’re Growing

by Carolyn D. (Drew, Age 11)

"BrainWare Safari built Drew's confidence to know that he could go further even when it was hard. He liked the way the characters grew up. I think it translates to the kids and they feel they're growing."

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."

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."

Parents Say ... Skills that Benefit Children for Their Lifetime

by Puling Z. (Rachel, Age 7)

"BrainWare Safari works on skills that can benefit children for their lifetime. Other skills they may forget, but this is different. It's like Chinese traditional medicine; it cures form the root."

Parents Say ... A Miracle

by Chana F., Israel

"BrainWare Safari is a miracle. I would have paid anything for it, now that I have seen what it can do to help my son grow his brain right before my eyes. I am confident that it will transform his academic failure into brilliant success."

Educators Say ... An Information Age Tool that Supports Information Age Thinking

by Ronald L. Kraft, Superintendent, MI

"To educate students in the Information Age instead of the Industrial Age, we need Information Age tools and materials that support Information Age thinking. BrainWare Safari is on the cutting edge of preparing students to be Information Age thinkers using exercises that develop their ability to recognize patterns, solve problems, and think more effectively."

Parents Say ... This Program Has Been a Gift

by

"Fourth grade was miserable for my daughter. Even though she did her homework every night and had a reading tutor, she wasn't able to retain facts, read at a second-grade level, and rarely passed tests in class. Her teacher requested holding her back. She started using BrainWare Safari two weeks before fifth grade. After just 3 weeks of practicing 4-5 times per week for 30 minutes each session, she was not only telling me her multiplication facts, but figuring out our her division facts. Her reading comprehension has increased and her ability to write paragraphs. This program has been a gift."
