"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."
For the fourth year, we are celebrating Brain Awareness Week with a grants program for schools, but we are also adding something new in this year for individual educators. The BrainWare Brain Awareness Week Grants Program is designed to promote a broader understanding of the importance of brain research and its contribution to effective learning and cognitive development in schools. Brain Awareness Week, sponsored by the Dana Foundation, is scheduled for March 16 to 22, 2015.
