Brain training rewires the neuropathways of the prefrontal cortex to improve concentration, attention, planning and organization. It is especially effective in treating people with ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, autism and central auditory processing issues.
Magnolia, TX (Vocus/PRWEB) February 22, 2011
Brain Potential Institute, the leading cognitive-training center that provides advanced cutting-edge treatment for people with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, autism and other neurological deficiencies, has announced the launch of its innovative one-on-one online program. This is the first time a one-on-one cognitive training program of this intensity will be offered via the Internet without the use of a pre-packaged computerized software.
VOLT, also known as Virtual Online Training, mirrors the company’s in-center Genius in Training program, which has drawn students from all parts of the country. The program is based upon advances in neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself and form new neural pathways. The Genius in Training program has many modules, each focusing on various sections of the brain that control language, memory, auditory processing, behavior, and speech to name a few. The result in most cases is a well-functioning brain rewired to be highly receptive to learning and a significantly increased IQ.
“Prior to VOLT, cognitive training of this magnitude was limited by location,” said Jane Davis, P.T., M.S.H.P, CEO and founder, Brain Potential Institute. “Now, anyone with a learning problem, focusing and attention issue and diagnosed neurological disability such as ADD, ADHD or dyslexia, can get one-on-one treatment with a trainer and expect the same success as if they were a student at our center. This is a giant stride in helping more people regardless of where they live.”
The process starts with a free screening, even if the person has had a previous evaluation by a neuro-psychologist. Depending on the student’s needs, a program is custom-tailored, taking into account age, medical indications, cognitive deficits, sensory issues, fine and gross motor skills, speech and social function.
“We often find that a student that has been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD either has only a central auditory processing issue or both,” said Davis. “Either way, our program has proven so effective, we have seen young students advance two to three grade levels in reading, math, language and other academic areas. It’s indescribably rewarding to see their newfound self-confidence blossom.”
Brain training isn’t just for children, however. Many adults that experience memory loss may simply be the subject of undiagnosed childhood ADHD or central auditory processing problems. They spent years learning to compensate for their lack of ability to concentrate and focus, and as these compensatory techniques are no longer needed for work, they lose them and mistake this as memory loss.
“Everyone can benefit from brain training,” said Davis.
After an evaluation, Brain Potential Institute trainers develop an individualized plan customized for that person’s needs, whether the goal is to improve focusing, attention and concentration, memory or academic skills.
Brain Potential Institute is based in Montgomery County, Texas. Many of its students that receive on-site services live within the communities of the Conroe, Woodlands, Magnolia, North Huston, Spring and Tomball areas.
Brain Potential Institute was founded by Jane Davis, P.T., M.S.H.P in 2002 as Kid Potential Inc., which expanded its services to include teens, adults and seniors and rebranded itself as Brain Potential Institute. Brain Potential Institute’s mission is to optimize through cognitive training, the human brain to reach its highest intellectual potential for best performance at school and work, and to preserve function at every age. The program accepts students ages 3 through 90. Evaluations are free. For more information, please visit http://www.brainpotentialinstitute.com or call 936.539.4574.
