6 Key Ingredients of Effective Brain Training
Not all brain workouts are the same. While board games and brain games may work some cognitive skills, and tutoring helps with specific academic content that was missed the first time, 1-on-1 brain training is quite different. At LearningRx, we start with a Brain Skills Assessment to find out which brain skills—such as memory, attention, logic & reasoning, visual and auditory processing, and processing speed—need to be strengthened. Then we use the results of that assessment to create a tailored program for the client. Over decades of research, we've found that for optimal results, brain training:
1. Must be practiced regularly
2. Should be done in a 1-on-1 setting
3. Needs to be intense
4. Needs to be focused and targeted
5. Needs to be done in a particular sequence
6. Requires immediate and accurate feedback
