"We found that our one-on-one online brain training is equally as successful as our in-center brain training program," said Jane Davis, Owner, Brain Potential Institute.
Montgomery, Texas (PRWEB) October 01, 2011
Brain Potential Institute announced today conclusive evidence that its highly popular online brain-training program is proving to be equally as successful in increasing IQs whether provided in person or online. VOLT, also known as Virtual Online Training, launched eighteen months ago as a global extension of its services. The online brain-training program followed thirty years of helping children and teens with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, central auditory processing problems, learning disabilities, focusing and attention issues at its Texas-based centers. VOLT is highly effective because skilled brain trainers work one-on-one with students via Skype. This allows the brain training team to engineer brain repair and administer each level of the program individually. VOLT allows the team to literally reach around the globe.
Brain Potential Institute’s brain training program is based on the plasticity of the brain and its ability to create new neuropathways—also known as neurogenesis. Recent studies have proven that if provided by a skilled trainer, brain training is much more effective than originally thought. Brain training is often a critical missing link before tutoring can be effective.
Brain Potential Institute, a leader in brain training, has known this all along. Today, it is recognized as one of the few companies able to claim that many of its students experience up to a 30-point IQ increase and jump three grade levels in reading. Now it has recorded the same results with students taking its brain training program online, working one-on-one with a trainer and using manipulatives that make it possible for students to respond verbally or in writing.
“You cannot optimally repair a brain by pushing a space bar,” said Jane Davis P.T., MSHP and CEO, Brain Potential Institute. “Developing new neuropathways requires repeating highly specific brain exercises that target various areas of the brain in relation to the students’ deficiencies. Next, the brain trainer facilitates wiring the new neuropathways together with those of the brain that were already well developed so its systems work optimally together.”
Brain Potential Institute has helped many students with learning problems in reading, writing and math,” said Davis. “We’ve made significant improvements for students experiencing difficulties in focusing or retaining what the teacher says, following instructions, or getting off task easily. The majority of our students have gone from failing in school to earning Bs or better. Additionally, with their newly rewired brain, students are able to pick up on social cues, making it possible for them to make better choices. They are often less exhausted and frustrated, improving their behavior and flexibility at home and school. Their motivation to learn also increases.“
The company’s decision to offer the program online, which follows the same step-by-step exercises initiated in person at the institute, has proven a giant leap in the brain-training field. By breaking down borders and allowing people from all parts of the world to enter the Brain Potential Institute’s highly effective VOLT brain training program, the company is experiencing a huge increase in clients from Australia, England and other English-speaking countries.
Because the program also incorporates its brain training with follow-up tutoring to bring students up to par academically, Brain Potential Institute’s program produces permanent results for most. Standardized IQ & Achievement testing validates and verifies the incredible success students experience at completion of the Brain Potential Institute’s brain training program. Whether online or at the facility, the program takes an average of 72 hours to reach maximum results.
Brain Potential Institute is based in Montgomery County, Texas, approximately 30 miles north of Houston. Many students that attend locally live within the communities of the Conroe, Magnolia, Montgomery, Willis, Woodlands, Champions, Cy-Fair, Tomball and Spring areas.
