Evidence-based cognitive training, could increase brain neuroplasticity, for all ages,
children, students, adults, and older adults. Training Computer based cognitive training is also a form of brain training and performance enhancement. As we need to do exercises to keep our bodies in shape, we now know our brain needs exercises to stay in shape, as well.
This computer training works several cognitive areas important for our daily activities such as, reading skills, other academic skills, attention-focus skills, memory, and many other problem solving skills required for a more successful outcome in daily activities. Employers require these skills for job training. Academic readiness and success are composed of these cognitive skills. Improved daily activities include reading skills,
planning organizing in school or on the job or job training, and overall daily alertness. re
Older adults need cognitive training or exercises. As we age, there is a natural decline in our abilities including cognitive skills. Thanks to discovery brain neuroplasticity, research has shown that with regular periodic exercises, cognitive skills could be improved.
Athletes, whether competitive or not, require focused attention and planning. Cognitive training may remind the brain, help the athlete regain sustained focus.
Students of all ages and abilities require there brain to be performing a optimal levels for successful grades. The computer training module independently adjusts the activity to match trainees level. The different cognitive skills that are practiced with our brain training modules, are research based and have been show to be necessary for academic success. As with physical exercises for our body, we need cognitive training exercises for our brain regularly to sustain our skills or to make additional growth. Whether the student is gifted or has a disability, the program will adjust task difficulty, for all to benefit.
Cognitive Training tools are designed to help improve the following cognitive skills, to name a few.
7. General learning, and overall executive functioning
8. Reading Cognitive Training is more specialized for training of reading skills.
A. Letter Recognition
B. Phonemic Awareness
C. Phonics Training
D. Mental Processing Speed
E. Auditory Discrimination
F. Working Memory (WM)
G. Attention Training
Exercising brain skills should consist of a comprehensive mental gym. The cognitive gym we support offers you over 2,000 different exercises targeting twenty different cognitive skills, The benefits of these exercises have been demonstrated in many studies.
Brain-Based Learning – The best computer based training programs are designed by a neuropsychologist with neuroscientific insights into how the brain learns. Now it has become evident that our brains can keep adapting and developing new abilities throughout our lifetime. This ability to reorganize and create new pathways is called neuroplasticity, and it’s the science behind quality brain training programs.
Research has shownthat systematic brain training can help people improve a number of cognitive skills including attention, working memory, problem solving abilities, reading and, in some cases, psychosocial functioning. The cognitive skills are necessary from earl childhood thru to older adults. Rather than targeting academic learning, cognitive training aims to improve the basic thinking skills people need in order to learn. Some research has also shown that developing these cognitive abilities leads, in turn, to improvements in self-esteem, self-confidence, and emotional stability. For children, significant improvements were noted in thinking skills andreading skills. For adults,increased focus and attentionhas been demonstrated, along with an increase in wide range of cognitive skills and problem solving skills.
Cognitive training can also include developing meta-cognitive strategies that people can use to improve their ability to perform tasks, for example, developing the habit of writing down and prioritizing daily tasks or improving the skills needed to organize and categorize.
The computer is an ideal training partner because it makes it easy to customize training and to track progress. Computerized cognitive training can be particularly useful in that it not only provides a wide variety of different types of exercises, both visual and auditory, but also automatically becomes more challenging as the client progresses. Clients will be continually directed to develop their cognitive skills to the maximum of their capabilities. The computer is non-judgmental and never loses patience! And, perhaps best of all, people associate computer “games” with fun.
Evidence Based – Research using computer based training in schools, privacy of your home, supports its efficacy and practicality. Students and adults made significant pre- to post improvements in visual and auditory working memory, verbal encoding, reading, attention, behavior, and even bookkeeping skills! Results of these studies provide strong support for including cognitive training in your students’ school day. Adults and children have increased their neuroplasticity and cognitive functioning.
Easy to include in a student’s resource room or IEP for any student – Students can work independently in any classroom.
Comprehensive – The wide variety of challenging tasks and the depth of the content can help you to be successful in delivering improvement in whatever cognitive skills you elect to train for your students at almost any ability level. With over 2000 exercises, the MindPower Builder is the largest, most comprehensive set of cognitive exercises on the market.
Economical – Call for individual pricing options for you, family member or organization.
Motivating – A built-in reward system keeps your students motivated. Students will work more quickly to finish their seat work and earn computer time. Entertaining, video-game-like tasks break the routine of the exercises, rewarding their hard work and adding additional training in hand-eye coordination.
