Video Games for Brain Training

When your child isn’t ‘getting it’ at school –  they can’t keep up with the pace, can’t take good notes, aren’t understanding what they’re reading – it can be disheartening and stressful for not just your child, but you too. Once you’ve decided to commit brain training with a professional, you’ll have access to top-notch, cutting-edge brain knowledge and tools. One tool that is having amazing success in transforming kids’ thinking process is (this may be surprising) a video game based cognitive training program called Brain Ware Safari.

Based on sound cognitive skills training research, Brain Ware Safari is built to develop students’ processing skills. An engaging video game that’s actually fun, children enjoy playing Brain Ware Safari games and don’t even know they’re learning! As children advance through levels of the game, growth is difficult to discern at first, but over time, you’ll notice signs including increased focus, attention to details, speedier processing of information, faster reading. Testing shows that students using Brain Ware Safari can actually achieve an average of four years of cognitive growth in just three months (“A Study of the Effectiveness of Cognitive Skill Therapy Delivered in a Video-Game Format” by D. Helms and Sara Sawtelle, Optometry & Vision Development, 2007, vol. 381, pages 19-26).

Watching your child achieve a new sense of mastery and the resulting confidence boost is an amazing gift. At EmpowerKidz, we’re pleased to offer Brain Ware Safari to our clients.
