What is Brain Fitness?

 

What is brain fitness and why are we so passionate about it, you may ask.

 

“Brain fitness” is really another term for cognitive or learning skills like memory and attention. We prefer the term “brain fitness” because it implies that we can improve it, much like physical fitness. Indeed, recent discoveries from brain research have shown that our brains can improve, at whatever age we may be. This awesome potential of our brain to improve, known as “neuroplasticity” is the basisbehindour work here in BrainFit Studio. Using a combination of programmes from the USA and Australia as well as our own proprietary programmes, we aim to enhance and strengthen your child’s brain fitness (and indeed your own!) for learning.

 

 

 

CognitiveMAP™ Assessment

 
CognitiveMAP™ is BrainFit®’s proprietary neuroscientific tool which measures the brain fitness level of an individual. Besides helping us to understand one’s unique brain fitness profile, it also allows us to objectively measure improvement in cognitive skills after brain fitness training.
 
 
What does a CognitiveMAP™ evaluate?
 
CognitiveMAP™ evaluates a student’s cognitive skills in the 5 brain fitness systems of:

1)    Visual processing

2)    Auditory processing

3)    Sensory-Motor processing

4)    Attention and Memory

5)    Social-Emotional functioning

 
These 5 systems are important because whether you are learning to play golf, play the piano or solve a Math problem, they form the foundation of our “engine for learning”. Figure 1.1 on the next page demonstrates how the 5 cognitive systems form the foundation of our learning.
 
 
What kind of tests are we using?

At Brainfit Studio, we use internationally recognised standardised tests to build each student’s cognitive profile. Standardised tests are universally conducted and scored in a consistent manner, allowing a wealth of statistical data to be collected. CognitiveMAP™ thus enables us to determine the “fitness level” of a student’s cognitive abilities by comparing his standardised tests scores against data of his peers.

We can then identify the strengths and weaknesses of the 5 brain fitness systems,personalize the programme to their abilities, and measure their cognitive improvements.

 

 

 

Programme

 

Scholar 

BRAINFit® Scholar SMART Programme (6 to 18 years old)

 

This fully personalized brain fitness training programme aims to give school-going children a learning advantage through “mentalwork-outs”. To achieve rapid, enduring results, we use the following programmes to build key mental “muscles” intensively over a 4-month term (1-hour session, twice a week):

 

 

SMART™ Moves

SMART™ Moves aims to strengthen a student’s sensory-motor brain fitness and accelerate learning speed using a proven and personalised gym-based program.

 

Sensory-motor brain fitness is critical in the classroom whenever a child needs to put pen to paper (e.g. for drawing, colouring and writing), participate in activities with other children or execute any response with a movement element.

 

See improvements in:
  • Focus and organisation
  • Rhythm and timing
  • Learning speed
  • Body and spatial awareness
  • Advance visual skills
  • Gross and fine motor skills
  • Confidence

SMART™ Vision aims to rapidly improve a student’s visual brain fitness by using a proven and personalised program comprising gym-based exercises, table-top as well as computer-based visual activities.

 

smart vision

Our visual brain fitness helps us to quickly and accurately interpret the information received through our eyes, especially important in the classroom. Having strong visual brain fitness helps students to excel in “visual” subjects such as Math, geometry and have neat, effortless handwriting.

 

During each SMART™ Vision session, your child will participate in a series of movement activities, as well as table-top and computer-based activities that strengthen visual spatial perception, directionality, eye control and eye-hand coordination.
 

See improvements in:

  • Handwriting & copying
  • Learning speed and abilities
  • Focus and attention
  • Visual perception and memory
  • Accuracy in detailed work
  • Visual spatial awareness and organization
  
 
SMART Listening™
 

SMART Listening™ utilises the Fast ForWord® family of products (computer-based), proven for its effectiveness at MIT, Stanford and Harvard Universities. The result of more than 30 years of neuroscientific research, this software has helped over 2 million students boost their auditory, reading and language skills for improved scholastic performance, as well as increased their self-esteem.

 

Auditory brain fitness is a vital foundation for almost every learning task. Children that is able to process sounds rapidly and accurately allows them to not only become proficient with their oral language, but also achieve excellence in decoding and reading comprehension, the very keys to learning and academic success.

 smartlistening

During each Smart Listening session, your child will be trained using the Fast ForWord® software. It accelerates learning by developing Learning MAPS™, key cognitive skills comprising Memory, Attention, Processing, and Sequencing.
 

See improvements in:

  • Auditory processing
  • Ability to follow instructions
  • Auditory memory
  • Receptive and expressive language skills
  • Reading and comprehension
  • Learning speed
  • Attention and focus
  • Communication and social skills
  • Confidence
 
 
SMART™ Focus
 

SMART™ Focus aims to build on children’s attention and working memory brain fitness utilizing computer-based working memory activities and a scientifically proven computer-based software, emWave Pro that uses a real-time heart rate variability monitor to teach children on appropriate breathing and relaxation techniques.

Our attention system is closely associated with our working memory system. Working memory is used to remember and manipulate important information, and it requires the simultaneous storage and processing of information using our visual and auditory brain fitness systems. Without paying adequate attention, it is impossible to acquire information accurately or execute without error. So, our attention brain fitness is vital to helps us remain focused on task-relevant information, ignoring distractions and control our impulses, without which success in school and learning becomes impossible.

During each Smart Focus session, your child will practice on 4 computer-based activities that boosts their working memory:

1)    Dancing Patterns

smartfocus

2)    Rainbow Sounds

3)    Twinkle Numbers

4)    Re-N-Counters (Brain Workshop)

Your child will also be trained to learn stress reduction and emotional management skills using the emWave Pro software. Children will learn to control their physiology through breathing along with heart rhythms and focusing on positive emotions to create coherence, which is critical to improving resilience, wellness and facilitating personal growth.
 

See improvements in:

  • Attention and concentration
  • Ability to stay on task
  • Working memory
  • Attention stamina
  • Impulse control
  • Over-activity
 
 
 BRAINFit® Baby Programme (9 months to 2 years 11 months)

 

- Baby Da Vinci (9 months - 16 months)

- Baby Newton (17 months - 24 months)

- Baby Einstein (25 months - 35 months)

 

Baby Brainfit

Build a strong brain foundation starting at 9 months

Designed specially for infants and toddlers, BrainFit® Baby builds critical brain fitness and intelligence foundations. Parents and carers will learn how to optimise home environments and interact with their child to support this critical stage. Our unique BrainFit® Baby app records your Babies' milestones and ensures on-track development.

 

Your baby will gain a learning advantage through this brain-based programme that stimulates holistic development of critical mental “muscles”. In each 50-minute session, children (and carers) participate in gross and fine motor activities to build sensory-motor mental fitness. Visualization activities will help to sharpen visual and spatial intelligence. Structured listening and language stimulation will be used to enhance receptive and expressive language development. Memory and recall activities will help to strengthen memory and focus. Lastly and just as important, pretend play and emotional vocabulary will lay the foundation for social-emotional intelligence. 

 

 

Be at the starting line with SMART Workout

 

For BrainFit' Babies, the SMART Workout emphasises on enriching cognitive development. In each 50-minute session, Babies, together with their carers, participate in a complete range of activities:

 

Build control, strength and balance

Gross and fine motor exercises to strengthen sensory-motor skills.

 

Communicate effectively across various settings

Structured listening, music and language stimulation exercises to enhance receptive and expressive language development.

 

Strengthen memory and focus

Memory and recall activities protect and strengthen the "memory maker" in the brain — the sea horse-shaped structure called the hippocampus, as well as other brain sites.

 

Pick up Mathematical or abstract concepts easily later on

Exercises to sharpen spatial-temporal reasoning and visualisation — that is, the ability to imagine and manipulate the interaction of objects in their minds.

 

Nurture social skills and emotional intelligence

Activities like pretend-play not only increases Babies' creativity but also develop self-regulation, the foundation of social skills and emotional intelligence.
 
 
 

BRAINFit® Junior Programme (3 to 6 years old)

 

Junior Brainfit

Nursery and Kindergarten Level

- Junior Da Vinci (3 years old - 4 years old)

- Junior Newton (5 years old - 6 years old)

 

 

Put your best foot forward

 

While BrainFit® Baby establishes vital intelligence foundations, BrainFit® Junior further consolidates and accelerates these pathways. The goal is for our preschoolers to have a solid and sturdy set of cognitive skills (these are absolutely critical to keeping those learning engines well-oiled!) as they enter Primary One.

 

For example, to master reading and comprehension, a solid foundation in both phonological processing and eye tracking speed is essential. To be a top learner, it is vital to be able to follow multiple-step instructions sequentially. To excel in Math, a strong development of spatial sense and visualization is critical. To write and copy effortlessly, sensory-motor control must be in the tip-top state. To focus well in class, make friends successfully and thrive in school, the ability to manage one’s emotions, especially negative ones, is critical.

 
In each 90-minute class, children will participate in activities that enhance their holistic development in these key areas to maximize their potential for school success.

 

 

Get a headstart with SMART Workout

 

For BrainFit' Juniors, the SMART Workout emphasises fortifying cognitive development. This sets a sturdy foundation for life-long learning.

Frena Tan, Mother of 6-year-old Ashley Low rates this listing with

After joining 64 sessions in scholar program, Ashley’s attention span is getting longer and she is more focus on the things that she does. For example, she can read storybook by herself.

Moreover, in terms of handwriting, she used to be confused with certain numbers and letter like ‘b’ and ‘d’ but now she does not write letters or number in opposite direction anymore.

I also see improvement in her motor skill as she is less clumsy now.
She is much better in memory and getting faster in learning new concepts. In addition, she is able to speak in longer sentences and there is less pause in between her sentences when having conversations with her friends.

Overall I’m very satisfied with my child’s progress and literally BrainFit Studio helped to solve Ashley’s problem on image reversal and can read much faster and for longer time.
