BrainWare SAFARI strengthens your clients’ capacity to learn
and be successful – not just for the next test – but throughout their lives.
Better Mind … Better Life®.
BrainWare SAFARI develops the ability to learn and think effectively in a comprehensive, integrated and engaging way – the way the brain works.
Award-winning BrainWare Safari builds 41 cognitive skills in 6 areas: Attention, Memory, Thinking, Visual Processing, Auditory Processing and Sensory Integration. The 20 exercises in BrainWare SAFARI (most users call them games, rather than exercises – and that’s ok with us!) are based on decades of proven clinical practice from multiple disciplines. BrainWare SAFARI is easy to incorporate in your practice to enhance outcomes, to gain insight into client strengths and weaknesses, and to individualize therapy.

A Flexible Tool for In-Office and At-Home Use

BrainWare SAFARI is an award-winning software program that incorporates decades of proven clinical approaches to cognitive skills development into an engaging video-game format. The program contains 20 exercises comprising 168 progressively challenging levels that develop and strengthen 41 cognitive skills.

The 41 skills fall into six categories.

BrainWare SAFARI is used by many different types of clinicians and learning specialists to help their patients/clients/students improve the functioning of cognitive processes.  It can be used as a stand-alone cognitive training tool, or as a supplement to other therapies, including vision therapy, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, cognitive rehabilitation and remediation of learning disabilities. 

If you work in the field of cognitive training, you likely are aware of other programs used for brain training or development of specific cognitive functions.  BrainWare SAFARI is unique in several ways:

  • It exercises cognitive skills in an integrated manner (like cross-training form the mind).
  • It is built on 40 years of muti-disciplinary clinical therapy practice.
  • It is supported by published peer-reviewed research and numerous field studies demonstrating a significant impact on cognitive skills and transfer to academic performance.
  • It is more comprehensive in the breadth of skills developed than other brain programs.
  • It provides a fun and engaging video-game experience.

Regardless of the types of patients/clients/students you work with, there are a few things you should know:

WHO       

BrainWare SAFARI is recommended for ages 6 through adult.  Children should know the alphabet and their numbers through 100, and they need to be able to use a mouse. 

WHAT

While BrainWare SAFARI looks like a video game -- and users find it engaging -- the exercises in the program are just that.  This is not a collection of brain games, but a program of cognitive therapy that was developed over 40 years by clinicians using and sharing their best practices.  The cognitive therapy was then incorporated into a computer-based delivery system that uses the best practices of video games and the Internet to enable progress monitoring by a clinician or learning specialist.

WHEN

The recommended protocol of using BrainWare SAFARI for most users is 3 to 5 times a week for 12 to 14 weeks, for 30 to 60 minutes per session.  The reason for this protocol is that it is the frequency of usage that has shown dramatic gains in cognitive skills and academic performance in research studies.  The protocol may be adapted for use following concussion or for use with individuals with intellectual disabilities, among other special situations.

WHERE

BrainWare SAFARI runs on a computer, either a PC or a Mac.  There is software that is installed on the computer and it requires an Internet connection.  The computer must have speakers.  A headset and mouse are recommended.  The software may be installed on as many computers as you wish, in your office and/or at the clients' home.  Each user has a unique username and password to log in so they can access the program from any computer with BrainWare.

The first thing most clinicians and learning specialists want to do is to see BrainWare SAFARI for themselves.  We are happy to schedule a personal demonstration for you which we will conduct via an online meeting.  You can easily include your staff (even if they are in different offices).

Homeschooling Parents Say ... Bolstering Their Abillity in Foreign Language Learning

by Darlene B., Mother of 4 Children, Living Abroad

"Since our children have been using BrainWare Safari, I have noticed that their memory and attention abilities were dynamically increased. We live abroad and my children go to school in the host language. I feel that this program is significant in bolstering their ability to understand and problem solve, most particularly in difficult foreign-language learning situations. My children love the program. I can assure you that the activities stimulate their brains and the activities themselves draw them back. I highly recommend this."

Kids Say ... Lots of Stuff is Easier

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."

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 ... I Noticed A Difference in His Schoolwork

by Debra W. (Demar, Age 10

"I noticed a difference in his schoolwork. When I went in to see his teacher, she told me how well he was maturing, how well he'd done in his classes, and how easy it was for him to make progress. She now has to keep up with hin in his schoolwork. Before he was slower and afraid to make decisions. Now he makes decisions for both of us. He likes BrainWare Safari. I love it!"
