Fairfield County, Connecticut
Science Behind Concussions
Brain Gain offers support to Fairfield County families through screenings and training to enhance cognitive recovery and growth.
Research-based screenings pinpoint essential skills that are not functioning at their full capabilities. Following screenings, if selected, our training offers opportunities to strengthen cognitive performance. This training has helped those with learning struggles including ADHD, struggles with reading, slower workers, traumatic brain injury and dyslexia. Our program focuses on identifying the source of the challenge, strengthening areas with room for growth and looking at the whole child. Instead of the common labeling, accepting and treating symptoms at surface level.
Brain Gain concentrates on developing the foundational and fundamental skills needed for learning; known as cognitive skills, processing, and executive functions.
The brain, and these skills, can change throughout a person's life, for many different reasons. These skills can be negatively impacted by concussions and traumatic brain injuries. Which results in impaired performance on field and in the classroom.
Introduction to the Gibson Cognitive Skills Assessment
Get Started in 3 Easy Steps
This screening is the first step toward identifying the root cause of the struggle. Unlike other tests, like IQ, individual skills are equally taken into consideration. Instead of providing a single composite score. This process outlines an understanding of functioning of various important processes throughout a scope of increasingly challenging mental games. The screening aids in the development of an individualized program that targets weaker skills in order to strengthen them.
12-14 week program focused on strengthening weaker cognitive skills that are the cause of learning difficulties. PACE works by providing fast and visible changes in academics and beyond.
Paired with our PACE program Master the Code helps students struggling with Auditory and Visual based issues. This program is unique, it ensures the student completely understands the sound before learning its varying spelling codes during this 24 week program (including PACE).
Joined by the student's guardians we discuss the results of the screening. Diving into the student's strengths, areas of improvement, and the impact current skill functioning has in daily life. If one or more of the cognitive skills are weak the client may be selected as a candidate for cognitive and processing enhancement.
