Parents Say ... A Miracle

by Chana F., Israel

"BrainWare Safari is a miracle. I would have paid anything for it, now that I have seen what it can do to help my son grow his brain right before my eyes. I am confident that it will transform his academic failure into brilliant success."

Parents Say ... The Challenge to Think Beyond Their Comfort Zone

by

"My second child (12) completed BrainWare Safari about a month ago and our youngest (10) is onto his last bar. The program presented all of our children with the challenge to think beyond their comfort zone, to step 'outside' the box, and be creative in how to problem-solve their learning steps. Thank you! If you ever develop a program which takes them from the end of BrainWare Safari onward, then count us in for the next round!"

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."

Parents Say ... I Was Just the Happiest Mom in Town

by Barb M. (Matt, Age 9)

"I think that all kids have strengths and weakensses and they feel much better about their weaknesses when they know their strengths. BrainWare Safari did that for Matt. I had a hard time believeing the results because he showed such a huge amount of improvement. I took him to a psychologist because I wanted to validate the results. They were all validated. I was just the happiest Mom in town."

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."

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 ... They Feel They’re Growing

by Carolyn D. (Drew, Age 11)

"BrainWare Safari built Drew's confidence to know that he could go further even when it was hard. He liked the way the characters grew up. I think it translates to the kids and they feel they're growing."

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."

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."

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."
