A Specialized Alternative to Traditional Tutoring
Learning Programs for Children with ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, and Other Learning Delays or Disabilities.
Feeling Frustrated with Learning Difficulties?
Many struggles with learning, reading, and attention span can be side-effects of underlying weaknesses in a child’s other cognitive skills. Traditional methods such as repetition and rote memorization target the side effects of these skill weaknesses, but not the cause. It can feel discouraging for both children and parents when traditional tutoring methods don’t help alleviate learning problems.
We know that nothing is more satisfying than watching your child learn to be self confident — and when it comes to building confident learners, personalized lesson plans and skill training can make all the difference! BrainWorks trainers identify and address cognitive skill weaknesses in order to create effective learning and programs.

What Makes Brain Works Different?
By focusing directly on the root cause of learning struggle, which is an underlying weakness in cognitive skills; we help struggling students overcome life-long symptoms of learning disabilities.
What Makes BrainWorks Great
A student's ability to keep the eyes and mind on a task long enough to gather all pertinent information can have a profound effect on how the student learns.
A vital skill in retention. Cross-Patterning is the epicenter of most processing abilities and allows free open communication between the right and left brain hemispheres.
The skill of movement or sequence. Seeing “b” as “d,” or “p” as “q,” reading “was” as “saw,” writing from right to left and not knowing right from left are all symptoms of low directional skills.
One of the major visual skills needed to perform the act of reading is the ability of the eyes to track. During the act of reading, the eyes must accurately follow the lines of the text and move precisely from one word to the next.
The process of Figure Ground is the ability to focus on the “figure” or the important stimuli against a background of competing stimuli. The volume of stimuli coming to the brain at any given time is incredible.
The ability of the brain to respond within a given time frame. A weak motor match is often a problem for students who have difficulty with reading fluency.
Particularly important in the process of reading. The brain treats each word as a shape. Each word creates its own unique shape, which the student must immediately recognize.
This is the skill we use in determining where we are in relation to our physical and emotional world. Frequently, low positioning will cause an inaccurate perception of one’s relationship with others.
The skill of size is the skill we use in understanding volume. When perception is too large, tasks may be seen as overwhelming. When perception is too small, tasks may be left to the last minute when completion is impossible.
Do you have to walk them through homework step by step because they have poor focus? The Brain Works tutors help struggling students overcome life-long symptoms of learning disabilities.
A lack of processing skills makes a student avoid homework; it is difficult, frustrating, they feel disappointed with themselves, and they believe their parents are disappointed as well.
