When we learn, incoming information is processed through the key core skills the brain uses.
The skills the brain uses include: attention, processing speed, working memory, logic & reasoning, long-term memory, auditory processing and visual processing.
Like cogwheels in a machine, these skills have to work together to move information into stored knowledge. That means even one weak skill can keep information from being processed well, no matter how many times it’s explained by teachers, tutors, employers, friends, or family.
At ALP Brain, we strengthen the weak cognitive skills, and the results can be life-changing!
ALP Brain cognitive training programme targets seven primary cognitive skills the brain uses through repeated engagement in game-like mental exercises, delivered one-on-one by a brain trainer. The exercises emphasise visual or auditory processes that require attention and reasoning throughout each 60 minute training session. Using a synergistic “drill for skill” and metacognitive approach to developing cognitive skills, the program provides varying levels of intensity, multiple-task loading, and instant feedback from the trainer. Each brain training session is extremely focused, intense, and demanding and the trainer will push each student to just above their current cognitive skill levels. Built in distractions are used throughout some sessions to tax the brain’s capacity for sorting and evaluating the importance of incoming information. This ability to correctly handle distracting information and interruptions is the foundation for focus and attention skills.
