Too often, students frustrated by learning problems begin to think of themselves as failures and this simply is not true. For the most part, their brains are underdeveloped, which almost always is fixable through brain training.
Conroe, TX (PRWEB) May 21, 2012
Every year, more than 1.2 million students drop out of high school in the U.S, many because of learning problems. But one company has found a way to keep children and teens from increasing this statistic by treating learning problems with brain training.
Brain Potential Institute has developed a brain-training program with national reach and acclaim to treat students with learning problems stemming from ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, central auditory processing issues and autism. This powerful brain-training program was developed over many years and is the most comprehensive brain-training program available. Equally, it remains the only online brain-training program where students ranging from toddler to senior, work face to face with a specialized trainer via SKYPE. The brain-training exercises rewire critical areas of the brain that facilitate learning.
Culling from 30 years of successfully treating students with brain-based learning and movement problems caused by ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, central auditory processing issues and other brain disorders, Brain Potential Institute’s cutting-edge program is now known to increase a person’s IQ by up to 30 points.
“Our next goal is to break the 30-point barrier,” said Jane Davis, P.T., M.S.H.P and CEO, Brain Potential Institute.
Many of its students jump three grade levels in reading, writing and math. They demonstrate a marked improvement in their ability to listen and remember what is heard. Students that have completed brain training process information better and faster and their memory is improved. This new efficient brain makes learning, following multi-step directions and completing tasks much easier in and out of the classroom.
“Optimizing people’s brains has been my plight for all my adult life,” said Davis.
Davis was born with Cerebral Palsy. Her first mission was to understand and repair her brain’s wiring. Determined to overcome her barriers, she began studying brain plasticity, which also is known as neurogenesis. Today, Davis is a member of MENSA and a passionate advocate for people of all ages to maximize their brain potential so they may reach their highest learning ability.
Brain Potential Institute sets the standard for best practices in brain training. Its trainers are thoroughly neurologically screened before entering its trainer program to determine the applicant’s fitness to serve. The trainer program is modeled after pilot training to determine attention, memory and brain speed. Trainers must demonstrate strength in all these areas to ensure the company’s students achieve the highest possible outcomes from brain training.
“Typically only one in 25 applicants are found to be neurologically qualified for joining our team,” said Davis. “We are the only company with these stringent requirements for trainers to serve our students. Many of our trainers are MENSA members with IQs above 130.”
The other feature that gives Brain Potential Institute its leading edge is that parents don’t need to pay large sums to get a screening. In fact, an initial screening to determine whether the student actually has a neurological risk that may be responsible for learning problems in school is free. This is one of the largest issues parents face today. Furthermore, according to a recent Los Angeles Times article, many parents are not even told of the options they have within the schools and when they are, it is difficult to convince school administrators to test for learning problems.
Only students that are failing and being considered for special education qualify for a full evaluation of learning disabilities from a qualified educational diagnostician. Even then parents have to fight for it.
At best, if the student is diagnosed with a learning disability, the focus is on behavioral changes and ways to compensate for his learning problems rather than treating it.
“We don’t mask or compensate for learning problems, we treat them and permanently repair the brain,” said Davis. “There are thousands of kids that are struggling just to keep their grades at the basic level, that had they completed only 72 hours of brain training with us, would find learning a much easier task. Untreated learning problems become a lifelong problem.”
Jane Davis, P.T., M.S.H.P founded Brain Potential Institute in 2002 as Kid Potential Inc. The company expanded its services to provide brain training to teens, adults and seniors, which required rebranding itself as Brain Potential Institute. Brain Potential Institute is dedicated to optimizing the human brain at any age through cognitive training to reach its highest potential and preserve brain function for optimum performance at school and work. Brain Potential Institute accepts students ages 3 through 90. Screenings are free. Please visit http://www.brainpotentialinstitute.com, or call 877.600.6565 for more information.
