Is there an age limit when brain training is most effective?
Not at all. The science of brain training is based on neuroplasticity, which refers to the brain’s lifelong ability to grow and change. At every age and stage in life, your brain can increase existing neural pathways and even create new ones. This means the way you think and learn—even your IQ!—is never set in stone. It can always be changed and improved.
How do your programs work?
Our research-based programs consist of customized mental exercises, done one-on-one with a personal brain trainer over 16 to 32 weeks. The “personal training” aspect of what we do is key. This is because, for brain training to be effective, it must incorporate five key ingredients—practice, intensity, sequencing, loading and immediate feedback—and the absolute best way to accomplish these elements is by working with a Personal Brain Trainer.
Can’t I improve my brain by myself, using puzzles and online games?
Online games and puzzles are always great things. Think of them like eating an apple instead of chips, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. But when you’re looking for dramatic changes, you need something more. When you’re serious about changing your body, you hire a personal fitness trainer. In the same way, when you’re serious about changing your brain, you hire a Personal Brain Trainer.
What differences can I expect after brain training?
Students in the United States gain an average of 15 to 20 points in IQ, and move up an average of 30 percentile points. But we don’t just change brains; we change lives. Kids, adults, athletes, senior adults—as well as people with ADHD, dyslexia, autism, even traumatic brain injury—who have gone through our programs say the differences in their lives are dramatic! They say they can think, learn and remember better than ever! A faster, stronger brain improves performance at school, at work, in sports—even behind the wheel of a car!

What are typical signs of students who are struggling in school?
Learning difficulties may manifest in many ways. Typical signs of students who are struggling are those who fail to understand or comprehend what was taught in class. These students who struggle to pay attention or complete a task usually feel discouraged when studying or completing homework. As a consequence of their lack of confidence, they may begin to avoid work that seems complicated or challenging. Learning, reading, or attention difficulties rarely go away with time. If you sense that your child is struggling, you must take action. You could accommodate his or her problem by changing the environment, creating lower expectations, or focusing only on strengths; however, these choices limit your child's future potential. Only through professional testing and training can you identify and overcome the exact cause of a learning struggle and create a strategy that will produce both immediate and lifelong change.
Why should I feel confident about my child’s performance in school?
Your child may be struggling to keep up with school. Or your child may already getting good grades but needs better achievement in today’s extremely competitive environment. Brain science proves that differences in individual cognitive skills are often the reason one excels in school without much effort and another struggles. BrainRx brain training program can identify and correct learning problems quickly. Targeting underlying cognitive skills helps your child enhance processing skills and memory, making dramatic improvements in school. This takes the pressure off you and your child.
How do I know whether the Personal Brain Trainers are qualified?
We conduct a rigorous review and screening process before offering an interview to potential Personal Brain Trainers. At the interview, we shortlist candidates based on behavioral and cognitive skills assessments. Candidates who are eventually recruited have to attend a compulsory training and undergo an assessment before they are certified as Personal Brain Trainers.
What is the difference between brain training and tuition classes?
You send your child for tuition classes to relearn material that had already been taught in class. This is effective if your child missed out on class content in school. However, if one is unable to keep up or learn material the first time that it is presented, then there could be an underlying cognitive weakness that needs to be addressed. Cognitive testing benchmarks students against individuals in the same age category to reveal cognitive strengths and weaknesses. Individualized brain training strengthens key mental skills that are essential for easy learning in school.
