Cognitive Skills Training

One on one

Each student works one on one with his / her therapist/trainer for one hour. In this way, every student has the opportunity to be closely evaluated and trained with a lot of immediate feedback and positive reinforcement.

Startling

There is a quick transition between exercises during the session. The student can never anticipate which exercise will come next because the flow of the exercises change at arapid speed in each session.

Pushes Limits

The session content is based on cognitive skill exercises with increasing levels of difficulty, and the exercises push the student to their own limit by keeping the student at his/her own peak performance at all times.

Non-academic

The aim of the training is not to teach knowledge but to strengthen the underlying cognitive skills needed to process information. Thus, the exercises and games are not academic like reading writing or solving math problems.

Dynamic and Fun

The pulse of the session is always upbeat. The program content has been enriched with box games that work different cognitive skills one after the other. It can never be boring!

Personalized

The sessions are designed according to the level of the student at each session.

Provides Immediate Feedback

The work is performed one-to-one. Errors are corrected instantly, and there is always lots of positive reinforcement as well!
