It is only one week into summer and Brain Potential Institute is experiencing a dramatic influx of students that were struggling academically last year due to learning disabilities. To accept these students, Brain Potential Institute has opened a second session. Most students are enrolling to complete the program online face-to-face with a trainer via Skype.
If college is to be part of a student's future, there is much work to be done to ensure that his brain is ready for higher education.
Unfortunately, nationwide, only 32 percent of high school graduates are college ready.
“Texas, which has lowered its standard test criteria for this year while phasing in a new and harder test, released results that are alarming. Ninth graders scored as follows: 32 percent failed English I reading; 45 percent failed English I writing; 17 percent failed Algebra I.,” said Jane Davis, P.T., M.S.H.P. and CEO, Brain Potential Institute. “The test criteria is set to become much more stringent in 2016. These percentages will increase dramatically to a failure rate of 50 percent across the board.”
This is a huge red flag for parents that expect their student to go to college. Many are flocking to Brain Potential Institute at earlier ages and in larger numbers than ever before, to ensure their child’s brain is maximized and capable to learn.
“Many students are getting pushed through the system without solving their underlying learning disabilities,” said Davis. “Schools are prepared to re-teach information via tutoring, but the reasons students struggle to begin with are inadequately addressed. Brain training is an effective way to make
the brain more capable of learning because it improves memory, retention, focusing, concentration, computational skills, reading comprehension and other cognitive functions.”
Brain training is a new and emerging science. It improves a person’s ability to process information. It is proven to increase a student ‘s IQ by up to 30 points.
“We have seen students who came to us with learning disabilities jump three grade levels in reading and math,” said Davis.
For the process to be permanent, proper sequencing of the treatment is necessary. The series of steps are to test and measure the degree of learning difficulty, repair brain deficits, and re-teach information to the new, stronger brain.
Most students see significant improvement after only 72 hours of brain training treatment. The treatment, which lays new neural pathways, also is known as neurogenesis. Brain training is overtaking traditional tutoring and becoming a leading treatment for students with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, central auditory processing issues and autism.
Brain training involves performing multiple levels of exercises specifically developed to strengthen those sections of the brain that are weak. Once the brain training is complete, those areas of the brain that were strong already, can now communicate and work efficiently with the repaired areas. This is key to eliminating learning disabilities.
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 through cognitive training, the human brain to reach its highest intellectual potential for optimum performance at school and work, and to preserve brain function at all ages. 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.
