Cognitive Skills like attention and memory are the foundation for learning. Each mind develops uniquely, with some cognitive skills that are stronger than others. Our cognitive strengths and weaknesses impact our success in school, the workplace and in life.
Learning Capacity is not fixed. It can be developed.
Many different types of clinicians, therapists and learning centers utilize our cognitive tools in the services they provide clients to help them build their learning capacity.
BrainWare Cognitive Rating Scale (Free)
These rating scales were devised by clinicians to enable a parent, teacher or clinician to evaluate a child or adult on observable behaviors that relate to cognitive skills.
- Parent or teacher evaluation of student before and after cognitive training (self-evaluation for adult clients).

There are two rating scales for children (ages 6 to 8 and ages 9 to 12) and one for individuals 13 and older.

BrainWare SAFARI is the most researched, comprehensive cognitive training delivered online in the world. The exercises in the program work on 43 Cognitive Skills and were developed over 40 years of multidisciplinary clinical collaboration. We incorporated them with video-game technology, so the training is highly engaging.
The key to getting the kind of results we see in our research is to use the program:
- 3 to 5 times per week
- 30 to 45 minutes per session
- For 12 to 14 weeks
While individual results vary, children who use the program according to the schedule above improve their cognitive skills on average by 2 to 4 years and academic skills by 1 to 2 years in 12 weeks.
When your client has strengthened his or her cognitive skills, there may be certain aspects of literacy with which they could use your help. Our three reading programs are firmly grounded in neuroscience, like everything we do. They are also supported by research on their effectiveness and they are delivered using engaging video-game design.
