Parents Say ... They’re Playing but They’re Really Learning

by John Y. (Kendall, Age 11, and Clay, Age 8)

"They think they're playing but they're really learning. The video-game format makes them want to play. We did BrainWare Safari for the learning aspect, but the game part really made them want to do it. It motivated them."

Homeschooling Parents Say ... I Find the Exercises Challenging for Myself

by J.Detweiler, Homeschooling Parent

"My daughter, who is 8 years old, really enjoys BrainWare Safari. She has Sensory Processing Disorder; her vision and auditory system are impacted by this. The games do a great job targeting the skills she needs improvement on. We've found some of the games are similar to exercises her vision therapist was having her do. The one exception though is BrainWare Safari does it in a way that's more fun. As a parent, I enjoy watching her play the games and find them challenging for myself."

Educators Say ... I Could See Changes in Their Ability to Think Logically

by Michelle Fisher-Jones, Teacher, IN

"It is sad, as an educator, to see many students who come into my class lacking the confidence they need to be successful in school. It is imperative that students are given the opportunities to excel. BrainWare Safari was that opportunity and the students definitely took advantage of it. I could see changes in their ability to think logically and to solve problems. They looked forward to practicing the skills in BrainWare Safari. They just wanted to keep going."

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 ... It Was Challenging and Kept Her Excited

by Karen W. (Victoria, Age 8)

"I liked the program because Victoria was able to have her own reward system right there in front of her and that would keep her motivated to continue to pass the levels. It was game-oriented so it was fun, but at the same time, it was challenginge to her and kept her excited. As she passed more levels, her success became greater, and she would even surprise herself."

Parents Say ... I Don’t Have to Repeat Myself

by Julie B. (Nicholas, Age 9)

"I'm happy with BrainWare Safari and I've watched Nick's progess. His attention is better. I think his memory is better too. But what I really notice is that I don't have to repeat myself 20 times to get him to do something."

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."

Educators Say ... A Very Important Resource Tool for Our Teachers

by Denise Kish, Principal, MI

"As a principal and curriculum director, I am always looking for what works in education to help each of our students learn faster, more easily and more comprehensively, so each student experiences success. We have found that BrainWare Safari works with students at any level, whether struggling or accelerated. All our students improved their cognitive abilities after completing the exercises in BrainWare Safari. I consider this program a very important tool for our teachers; it makes their jobs easier as they now have better performing students."

Kids Say ... Lots of Stuff is Easier

by Rachel C. (Age 8)

"I can concentrate more and lots of stuff is easier."

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."

Rethinking Remediation in Higher Education – by Betsy Hill

The remediation statistics are sobering. Over half of students who enroll in 2-year colleges take remedial courses in English and/or math. Almost 20% of those enrolling in 4-year colleges do so. The rates for low-income students are even higher – 68% and 39% respectively. Of even greater concern is that higher education’s remediation efforts don’t […]
