A Homeschooling Parent and Adult User Says ... I Have Much Better Concentration and Memory

by Ramona Baker

"We had an evaluation were recommended for about $14,000 worth of brain work. I bought Brain Safari for my 14 year-old son, my 15 year-old daughter and for myself ( age 55). I am nearly finished with the program. I cant say what it has done for the kids yet, but I know for myself, I have a much better degree of concentration and memory. I am looking forward to seeing improvement in my daughter's logic and my son's processing speed. My children enjoy the program and I have not had to remind them to do it. It cost us less than one hour of brain training. We all wish there were more logic problems in the program."

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?"

Grandparents Say ... More Focused in School

by Donna C. (Brendan (Age 12)

"The first time Brendan used BrainWare Safari, he became so thoroughly engaged with the activities that he did not want to stop. He actually set his alarm clock an hour early the next morning so he could do more BrainWare before leaving for school. When his parents went to their parent-teacher conference recently, after he had been using the program for several weeks, his teacher was very impressed. She observed that he is more focused in school and more confident in his ability to independently complete his classroom and homework assignments."

Kids Say ... I Beat It!

by Adam K. (Age 12)

"It was really fun. Some levels were really easy, but others got harder and harder. I didn't think that I could beat the last level of one of the exercises, but I worked on it and beat it!"

Kids Say ... Lots of Stuff is Easier

by Rachel C. (Age 8)

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

Parents Say ... You Can Give This Gift to Your Child

by Cheryl M. (Drew, Age 10)

"It's like the difference between taking your child to a music lesson and sitting and waiting or having the music teacher come to your house. You can manage it, you can get your hands around it, and you can give this gift to your child."

Parents Say ... Thinking Outside of the Box

by Veranda W. (Zoie, Age 7)

"BrainWare Safari helped Zoie think outside of the box--learning to solve problems not just in one set way, but incorporating different, more creative and visual functions."

Clinicians Say ... Skills Children Will Apply Every Day of Their Lives

by Russell Osnes, OD

"Our brains are constantly changing and developing. The more we exercise them, the faster we learn, and the better we process the information we receive. Working on the 41 cognitive skills encompassed in BrainWare Safari can help kids perform better, do tasks more efficiently, remember what they've been studying in school better, and be able to stay on task longer. The skills children learn in BrainWare Safari they will apply every day of their lives."

Parents Say ... Other Programs Don’t Have the Depth of Research

by Sue D. (Michael, Age 12)

BrainWare is more intensive and strategic in terms of building connections in the brain. It's wonderful! Other games don't have the depth of research behind them."

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."

What Neuroscience Does and Doesn’t Contribute to Teaching and Learning, by Betsy Hill

It has become popular lately for neuroscience experts to disparage the efforts of educators to understand and apply what neuroscientists have been learning about the brain (as a recent article published by PBS does).  Sometimes they even seem to wonder why we would be interested. We’re interested because that is where learning happens.  Learning doesn’t […]

Every Day is Election Day — Even in Your Classroom, by Betsy Hill

As I was driving to work this morning, I listened to an interview with Rebecca Sive, the author of Every Day is Election Day.  While Sive focuses specifically on women in elective office, my first thought when I heard the title of the book was, “Yes!  This is what I have been saying for years.” […]

When Brain Training Works – Points of Controversy, by Betsy Hill and Roger Stark

Pre-publication publicity for a new book on the value of brain training claims that there are 5 conditions that make it effective.  While it surfaces some important considerations, it is likely to disappoint anyone who adheres strictly to the five conditions. Here’s where the advice falls short: It must engage and exercise a core brain-based […]

Cognitive Skills Development as a Supplement to Vision Therapy, by Betsy Hill

I am a graduate of vision therapy myself.  And I will never forget the moment when my vision, which had been blurry my entire life, suddenly became clear, following many months of hard work with a vision therapist.  At the time, I thought it was a miracle.  Today, I know that the “miracle” is the […]

The Mystery of Reading Comprehension, by Betsy Hill

Many students can read a passage,but afterwards are unable to tell you what they read.  Or perhaps they can answer simple factual questions (regurgitate), but it really has no meaning for them and will be forgotten the next day. How students make the leap from decoding to understanding is something that has challenged teachers since […]

A Blueprint for Building a 21st Century Worker (New White Paper)

It is becoming increasingly clear from neuroscience research that intelligence is not fixed and that the ability to learn, think and problem-solve can be enhanced at any age.  The implications of this new knowledge in the workplace are profound.  It means that poorly prepared entry-level workers can make significant improvements in their ability to meet workplace requirements in weeks.  It means that the effectiveness of corporate training programs can be dramatically improved, whether the training is for job-specific skills or for so-called “soft skills” like critical thinking, communication or collaboration.  It means that it is possible to develop the overall cognitive capacity of both individuals and organizations.  Read our new white paper that explores the implications of neuroscience research for the preparation and training of workers for 21st century work.

Indiana State-Wide Neuroscience and Education Study

We are working with the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy at Indiana University on an independent research study that w would serve to inform policy decisions regarding the adoption of BrainWare SAFARI across a broad spectrum of elementary schools and student populations.  Get more information about the upcoming Indiana State-Wide Neuroscience in Education Study.
