What is the Brain Lab?
Parents who enroll their child into the BRAIN Lab can expect a systematic approach to developing language and literacy skills. By systematic it is meant that we use a formula to determine the best plan first intervention that is individualized and personalized. FIRST, we begin with an educational assessment to determine the present level of functioning and skills. This is important because we have researched based programs that can address the needs of students ages K-12th grade. SECOND, we review the results of the assessment with the parents and recommend a personalized plan for improved literacy abilities. This plan will include a clear start and finish that includes a post test to measure program effectiveness. THIRD, while implementing the educational service plan, our team constantly monitors the child's progress for program effectiveness..

A program cycle will take anywhere from 4 - 16 weeks, depending upon the students learning style and needs.
