2 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 2 Introduction to Brain Facts The primary task of the brain to help maintain homeostasis – making sure everything is working well and in balance. The brain receives a constant stream of data as electrical impulses from the senses (eyes, ears, hands, etc) neurons. Neurons

3 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 3 Key Features of the Brain Processing Information that comes in from your senses via the specialized 10 % of your 100 billion plus cells known as neurons. There are more potential connections between neurons than atoms in our universe (Carter 2009). Neurons will send signals to each other information through electrical format by way of chemical transportation. The mode of transporting the signals is chemical through neurotransmitters.

4 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 4 Key Features of the Brain Synapses are the communication sites where the neurons pass the impulses across the chemical neurotransmitters to reach a receiving cell.

5 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 5 Theory of Neuroplasticity Your brains neurons are always creating new pathways for communication and rearranging/strengthening existing disabilities. Up until about 10 years ago, scientists thought our brain was hard wired and could not be changed.

7 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 7 Theory of Neuroplasticity Brain activity, associated with a given function, can move to a different location as a consequence of normal experience or brain injury/recovery. Changes occur in the brains functional and physical anatomy as a result of experience.

8 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 8 Theory of Neuroplasticity Change can occur only when the brain is paying attention and engaged. Behavioral circumstances help the brain to release neurochemical transmitters than enable change. If you are not paying attention, not motivated, etc. you will not achieve change.

9 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 9 How the Brain Learns

10 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 10 Steps Involved in Learning First, the brain requires attention and memory skills when attempting to receive information. As additional input is received, other cognitive skills are activated to assist in processing the data. Next, visual processing is needed for discerning and analyzing input. Additionally, auditory processing is used to review process and discriminate sounds. We cannot leave out logic and reasoning skills to focus on problem solving requests as in Math.

12 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 12 Steps Involved in Learning Reading comprehension skills are integrated to deal with listening and reading activities. Finally, each skill will play a part in processing almost every input. Therefore, the degree of strength in these individual learning skills will impact the ability of your childs brain to learn. If your childs skills show some or several weak areas, then the overall learning process will not be accurate, fast or efficient. This is often the case with a diagnosed learning disability.

13 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 13 Steps Involved in Learning

14 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 14 Cognitive Skills Needed for Reading Memory (ability to remember the sound-symbol relationship) Sound Segmenting (ability to separate or unglue sounds) Sound Blending (ability to put together sounds to form words) Auditory Analysis (ability to manipulate or analyze small changes in groups of sounds) Processing Speed (ability to process information quickly) Working Memory (ability to retain incoming information and process it quickly and properly) Attention (ability to stay on the given task in spite of distraction) Visualization (ability to create and use mental images) Reading Fluidity (ability to read smoothly) Logic and Reasoning (ability to nonverbally reason and solve problems)

15 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 15 Cognitive Skills Needed for Math Memory (ability to remember the sound-symbol relationship) Sequential Processing: to process chunks of information that are received one after another Simultaneous Processing: to process chunks of information that are received all at once Sustained Attention: to be able to stay on task. Visual Discrimination: to see differences in size, color, shape, distance, and orientation of objects. Visual Processing: to process and make use of visual images. Visual Manipulation: to flip, rotate, move, change color, etc. objects and images in one's mind Auditory Analysis (ability to manipulate or analyze small changes in groups of sounds) Processing Speed (ability to process information quickly) Working Memory (ability to retain incoming information and process it quickly and properly) Attention (ability to stay on the given task in spite of distraction) Visualization (ability to create and use mental images) Logic and Reasoning (ability to nonverbally reason and solve problems)

16 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 16 How to Measure Cognitive Skills What you really need is a direct cognitive based assessment tool that will measure the necessary cognitive skills for learning. Once you discover which cognitive skills are causing the learning difficulties, you need to strengthen these skills. For example, the assessment will outline in what cognitive areas your child is performing at the level of similar aged students. The assessment will also identify where your child is performing above or below similar aged students. Here is an example of the type of output you receive.

17 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 17 Cognitive Skills Screening

18 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 18 Strengthening Cognitive Skills Studies prove intense; challenging procedures completed one-on-one will strengthen weak cognitive skills without any regression. As a child progresses through a procedure, tasks are added requiring greater attention and forcing new skills to become automatic. Research studies have shown a child will gain an average over 3.6 years improvement in deficient cognitive skills within 12 -24 weeks! This type of training requires working with a certified brain trainer for 12 – 24 weeks. This is where you can TRAIN the brain to strengthen skills, create and use new neuropathways.

19 Brain Training for Kids 101 © Copyright 2010 Enhanced Learning Skills for Kids, LLC – All Rights Reserved www.els4kids.com 19 Processing & Cognitive Enhancement PACE is based on the best scientific research available and is continually modified to incorporate new scientific data. PACE targets and trains those skills that are most likely to have a meaningful impact on learning performance and academic abilities. PACE is provided individually to achieve significant results quickly. PACE consists of sequenced procedures to challenge - not bore or frustrate - the student. PACE is provided on a one-on-one basis to allow immediate feedback (error correction and positive reinforcement). PACE improves the student's self-esteem by allowing him or her to actually see the difference in his or her own performance. PACE drives new skills to the subconscious so that they become habitual and automatic. PACE procedures are non-academic so that they are different from the schoolwork with which the student may have had negative experiences.
