SUMMARY OF FINDINGS

The 4th-grade girls class was the only one in the school that exceeded their DIBELS benchmark score at the end of the school year. The rate of progress accelerated during the second half of the year when they were using BrainWare SAFARI, moving from 9 WPM above benchmark to 26 WPM above benchmark. The teacher observed behavioral improvements in the students, particularly in making fewer careless errors, memory, grasping new concepts and communication with parents, peers and teachers, following use of the program.
