Brain Training

Our specialized programs, many of which are not available anywhere else in Montreal, are effective because they are based on the most current research about how students learn. Our brain training programs are designed to improve language and listening ability, reading and comprehension, attention and focus, and problem-solving skills.

Programs for Brain Training

Fast ForWord® for language and reading

These programs are ideal for students, ages five to adult, who have difficulty with sound awareness, language ability, and/or the processing of auditory information. Research has shown that only four to six weeks of Fast ForWord® training produces language gains of up to two years and improves a student’s ability to hear the individual sounds in words. This gives students the foundation to be able to acquire basic reading and spelling skills.

Cellfield Reading Intervention Program

Cellfield is a computer-based intervention that addresses the inefficient neural wiring underlying reading problems, including dyslexia. Cellfield uses acoustically modified sound to rewire the brain so that children can hear the differences between words. Cellfield also uses brain plasticity principles to improve the ability to visually process text. On average, the reading skills of Cellfield participants improve between one and two grade levels in just ten days.

Interactive Metronome® for focus and attention

Interactive Metronome® is a drug-free approach to improving the processing abilities that affect attention, motor planning and sequencing. This improvement, in turn, strengthens motor skills, including mobility and gross motor function, and many fundamental cognitive capacities such as planning, organizing and language. Gains from this program in motor planning and sequencing can lead to improvements in the following areas: attention and concentration, language processing, behavior (impulsiveness), motor control and coordination, and academic performance.

Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment for cognitive training

Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment is an intervention program designed to enhance the cognitive skills necessary for independent thinking and academic success. Through these learning experiences, students learn “how to learn” which can lead to increased academic performance. FIE consists of fourteen “instruments of learning” which help learners develop the tools and habits of thinking allowing them to process information, see connections, visualize spatial and temporal relationships, reason deductively and inductively, and communicate in precise ways.
