Cognitive Skills & Memory Training Through Brain Training in Idaho

Brain Works gets the parents involved in the one-on-one individualized training sessions. We offer cognitive skills training that target core learning processes and deficiencies. The mental exercises we offer help improve memory, reading ability, and concentration and can participate in at any of our nine training centers in Idaho and Utah. Rather than focus on a particular topic or subject matter, like traditional private tutoring, brain training offers cognitive skills training that targets core learning processes.

A Cognitive Training Program Focused on the Learning Process

We use cognitive skills like sustained, selective, and divided attention. Then, we utilize those skills to help with thinking, remembering, learning, reading, paying attention, and cooperating with others. Long-term and working memory, logic and reasoning, auditory and visual processing, and processing speed are also individual cognitive skills a child needs to acquire and practice.

Our senses pick up sights, sounds, and sensations. Brain training targets all these in helping a person to learn and think more efficiently based on neurological processes. We help your perception become clear to assist with transferring all the electrical impulses to the brain.

Learn to Think with Our Cognitive Skill Learning Center

Cognitive training helps students choose the best way to process what they’re learning, by increasing awareness of how the brain receives, processes, and stores information. Our services enable Idaho parents to be engaged in these sessions that strengthen their child’s cognitive memory skill learning. Somewhat comparable to physical therapy and sensory activities stimulate neurological pathways.

Brain Works’ techniques are suited for anyone trying to improve their learning skills, or who have learning difficulties. We focus on getting to the root of the problem, instead of getting the students to repeat information that they were told that day in school. We have helped many students correct their cognitive weaknesses so that they can improve on their learning disabilities.

A Clear Path to Cognitive Skills Training

Many Idaho parents are trying to get their children the proper help for their learning disabilities. Brain Works does more than help with memorization, we help with their cognitive skills:


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.


It has long been known that certain kinds of information may become trapped in various areas of the brain by ineffective processing.

Directional Awareness

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.

Eye Tracking

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.

Figure Ground

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.

Motor Match

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.

Visual Memory

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.

Size Perception

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.

These are all essential skills. A student may be intelligent but still show signs of learning difficulties. If they’re lacking any in a series of important cognitive skills, that can be the reason why. Brain Works employs programs that have had measurable results and profound impacts on the learning ability of children in Utah and Idaho.
