Sister Mary Ellen Schroeder coaches a third grade student as she does her BrainSkills™ program. The students spend a half hour daily at the Center on the program. This consistent practice of the skills will result in the development of skills in memory, attention, processing speed, visual and auditory processing and logic and reasoning. Coaching is essential to the program because students can get discouraged if they cannot achieve success immediately. Our motto is “When it gets tough, that is when the brain is growing, so stick to it!”
In addition to the students in our after school program, we also travel to a middle school where we coach sixth and seventh grade boys in the BrainPower™ Program. We are training the teacher who will continue the program after we leave.
