Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- What is Brain Training?
Brain Training is a one on one cognitive development program that works on identifying the main cause of learning difficulties, and retrains the brain. Brain training consists of many different drills and games that are played in sequence to challenge the student eliminating frustration or boredom. After a student passes a task they are then able to complete the next level which is more challenging. Students receive points for passing each level and for participating. Each student is provided with their own training kit including manual, game cards, and a metronome.
- Who can benefit from Brain Training?
Our program benefits many different people such as people with a traumatic brain injury, seniors, professionals, preschoolers, high school students, struggling students, and people with ADD/ADHD, LD, Autism, and Dyslexia. Brain training can benefit anyone between the ages 4 to 94.
- What is the difference between Brain Training and tutoring?
While tutoring is great for reteaching information, Brain Training identifies the main causes of learning difficulties which then allows us to change the way the brain thinks and learns for a life time. This stimulates and strengthens your brain allowing neural pathways to be retrained or the creation of new neural pathways. These mental skills are transferrable to a child’s entire school year, their working career as well as improving daily tasks, driving ability and athletics. Brain training is proven to be seven times more effective than tutoring.
- How many sessions do I have to attend?
Brain Training sessions typically occur 3 times a week for the duration of 8 to 12 weeks.
- What results are achieved by P.A.C.E?

These skills improve reading, spelling, problem solving, comprehension, sport, and much more.
- Will my funding cover the cost of Brain Training?
