What can this programme do for my children?BrainRx™ is a unique brain-training programme developed in the US based on research started by Dr. Ken Gibson in 1985. BrainRx™ aims to change how the brain grasps and uses incoming information, instead of teaching subject content, unlike academic tutoring. The programme advocates and addresses the cause, not just the symptoms. It helps individuals change their lives and unlock the learning potential.
This programme is ideal for kids aged seven and older. Your child can expect to receive a total of 70 hours of training: 40 hours of one-on-one training with a coach, and 30 hours of digital brain training that can be done at home on a computer. Each training session lasts one to two hours, and consists of intense but fun, game-like mental exercises.
They are designed to be short, intense and highly effective in helping your child recall important facts more easily while sharpening his/her thinking, learning, reading, reasoning and attentive skills. Training schedules can be customized according to his/her availability.
