BrainWare SAFARI is an award-winning software program that incorporates decades of proven multidisciplinary clinical approaches to cognitive skills development into an engaging video-game format.
The program contains 20 exercises comprising 168 progressively challenging levels that develop and strengthen 41 cognitive (mental processing) skills.
The 41 skills fall into six categories:
- Visual Processing
- Auditory Processing
- Sensory Integration
- Logic, Reasoning, Planning
Scientific research has demonstrated that the brain is plastic (it can change) and that the right kind of training develops new and stronger neural connections. Research is also showing the importance of skills like working memory, visualization and visual-auditory integration to academic and life success.
BrainWare SAFARI does not teach reading or math or any subject matter. Rather it trains the underlying cognitive skills that enable students to learn and demonstrate learning. The skills developed in BrainWare SAFARI were selected because they are critical in the learning process.
While the purpose of the program is serious and challenging, BrainWare SAFARI is designed to provide the inherent engagement and motivation of a video game.
The recommended usage for BrainWare SAFARI is 3 to 5 times per week, 30 to 60 minutes per day. Individual results will vary.
