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 ... I See My Daughter Making Gains

by Lisa E. (Kristi, Age 7)

"BrainWare Safari is not reading or math. Rather it teaches the skills necessary to learn. My daughter, who spent four and a half years in an institution in Russia, has completed 73 levels so far and is thrilled. She has even completed some areas with memory and sequencing, areas she was very weak in and thought she could not do. I see my daughter making gains on this versus other computer games she plays. This is unique."

Kids Say ... From B’s and C’s to A’s and B’s

by Jeremy P. (Age 11)

"My grades went up a lot--from B's and C's to A's and B's."

Educators Say ... More Rapidly Closes the Gap in Skills That Are Difficult to Remediate

by Sheila Govern, Principal, Lyons Elementary, AZ

"Students who used BrainWare Safari in 3rd grade and returned in 4th grade reduced the gap between their performance and expectation by at least half on reading tests. Students who used the program in 4th grade and returned in 5th grade reduced the gap by 75%. We currently focus on using the program with Title I students because it helps them more rapidly close the gap by developing skills they lack and that are difficult to remediate in any other way. We wish funding permitted us to use the program with all of our students."

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."

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 ... 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 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."

Educators Say ... The Program Boosted Their Self-Esteem

by Natalie Cordell, Teacher, IN

"I love BrainWare Safari and so do the students. The program is indeed a great way for the students to learn while having fun. Many of them have shown more willingness to work independently. The program definitely has boosted thier self-esteem as they have graduated many levels. It is rewarding to watch them solve problems and reach success."

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."
