Effect of Neuroscience-Based Cognitive Skill Training on Growth of Cognitive Deficits Associated with Learning Disabilities in Children Grade 2-4
Students in the study who used BrainWare SAFARI for 12 weeks improved their cognitive functioning by 2.8 years, compared to 2 months for the control group. This improvement raised the students’ overall cognitive proficiency level from 64% to 89% where 90% is the expected performance for a normally developing student. Students in the control group improved just one percentage point, from 63% to 64% proficiency. Students in the treatment group improved their reading and math scores by 0.8 and 1.0 grade equivalent respectively over the 12 weeks.

The Adolescent Brain
When children reach adolescence, their brains are about the size of adult brains, but, of course, those brains have not fully matured.While it is easy to blame raging hormones – and in fact, testosterone and estrogen do play very important roles in brain development – there are other developmental processes going on as well.
Students Increase Effectiveness of Reading and Math Interventions with the Addition of BrainWare SAFARI
The majority of students who used BrainWare SAFARI and were provided with a reading intervention received a Rate of Improvement (ROI) score greater than the expected ROI on AIMSweb, as did the students who used BrainWare SAFARI and a math intervention.
Cognitive Skills and English Language Learners
Today, more school districts than ever are challenged to educate children who speak little or no English when they enter the school system. This brief addresses the demands on certain cognitive skills that are relatively greater during the early stages of learning a new language, including working memory, sequential memory, and auditory memory skills and how these skills may be enhanced.
