BrainWare Implementation and Impact Report – Big Shoulders Fund

This case study summarizes the experience of six schools that elected to implement BrainWare with students in middle elementary grades, with the support of the Big Shoulders Fund in Chicago, IL.  Big Shoulders Fund provides support to Catholic schools in the neediest areas of inner-city Chicago.  Student growth and outcomes were tracked over time using the ACT Aspire Interim assessments, with some significant growth for students who used the program most consistently with the recommended frequency and intensity.
