Karina’s Story

Posted by with - in Read More →

For too many years, I watched my youngest child, Karina, struggle with school. We tried hard to help Karina. Sometimes through carefully planned “homework time” and an organized work space, sometimes through discipline, sometimes through frustration and tears: hers and ours. Too often she gave up, believing the lie she secretly told herself: “I’m not smart.”

I had heard about The Brain Gym for a few years, even suggesting it to a friend whose son struggled with school. So, the training began.  It was easy at first, but the work soon became more challenging.  Karina was mentally exhausted after her Brain Gym sessions…but she was progressing. While we were warned not to expect miracles…I was waiting to see some improvement.  I kept asking Karina if she thought things were getting better, and the answer was always “I don’t know.”  But everything changed one day toward the end of her Brain Gym sessions.

She is now a high school graduate on her way to college.  She still doesn’t love school…but she isn’t afraid of it anymore either. 

My only regret is that we didn’t get her to The Brain Gym sooner.  Brain training may sound funny…but I’m telling you…it works.  When the brain works better, studying becomes much easier.  Karina is proof of that.

Sam’s Story

Posted by with - in Read More →

My 10 year-old, Sam, had trouble reading and could not sit still long enough to pay attention in class. He was in the Title I reading program, and his self esteem was very low because of it. To compensate for this, he became the class clown and avoided his homework. After just 6 months with The Brain Gym, Sam is now a confident learner. He is out of Title I and actually enjoys reading! Sam’s confidence is way up and I no longer have to spend hours every night on his homework with him.

College now a possibility…

College is Now Possible:

The Brain Gym has opened up doors for my daughter that I thought were closed forever. Before doing the program she planned on attending a technical school to avoid four years of college. After her time at The Brain Gym, she has confidence and has learned techniques to help her move through areas of struggle. She now plans on attending college, possibly for teaching! We were very pleased with the program and with our trainer’s ability to implement it.”

Jennifer’s Story

Jennifer’s Story

As a mother of 5, I happily helped 4 of my children succeed in school. But with Jennifer, it was different. She was a diligent student, but continuously struggled in school, especially with reading. It was heartbreaking to see how much harder homework was for her than for her twin brother, who was un-phased by things that were so very difficult for Jennifer. The school was very willing to help, but their programs just didn’t do the trick for my daughter, and she fought to make decent grades, year after year. Finally, we found The Brain Gym. After the six-month program, my daughter is a completely different learner! She reads for fun and is out of the Title I Reading Program at school! She now works independently, and although she still receives extra help for math, the extra help actually helps now!
