About Elaine Sullivan…
Elaine Sullivan, BSN, is the Owner and Director of The Brain Gym in Yardley, PA. Elaine began her career as a Registered Nurse working in critical care, including attending patients neurologically impaired by stroke and traumatic brain injury.
Elaine became interested in helping children with learning difficulties when her own daughter struggled with language processing issues and an inability to understand the sound codes of the English language. She discovered that there are many different educational approaches to deal with learning disabilities but Elaine’s interest centered in the remediation of the cognitive deficits.
Elaine was trained and certified by The National Institute for Learning Development in Norfolk, VA in 1996 as an Educational Therapist and worked with their program for over ten years helping many children. Then in November of 2007 Elaine became a certified trainer for the Processing and Cognitive Enhancement (PACE) and Master the Code programs in Colorado Springs, CO. For more than a decade Elaine has helped dozens of children overcome all types of learning issues. She says, “There is nothing better than seeing a child reach their potential and enjoy learning again.” Her daughter reached her potential; she recently graduated from University with honors and a double major.
Elaine and her husband have three daughters, two sons-in-law and two beautiful grandsons.
