How BrainWare Safari Develops Cognitive Skills
When we do something over and over again (like practicing a piano piece, hitting a baseball or tying our shoes), our brains get to the point where the process is automatic. That means that the neural connections in our brains have become strengthened and activate as a network to enable us to do something without thinking about it. That is what BrainWare Safari does with 41 skills in the areas of attention, memory, visual and auditory processing, thinking and sensory integration.
It takes work, and it can be motivating and very rewarding!
Grandparents Say ... We’re Seeing Benefits We Never Thought We Would Get
by Paul A. (Gregory, Age 11)
"When I heard about BrainWare Safari, I immediately thought of my grandson, Gregory, who has Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). BrainWare is helping Greg learn strategy. If he can't do an exercise because he has a problem with his ADD, he develops a strategy so that he can find a way to do it. He learns how to use his brain in dfferent ways to help him with his speed. We're seeing benefits we never thoguht we would get which are helping us combat his deficiency."
Educators Say ... It Was Rewarding to Watch Students Overcome Obstacles to Their Reading Development
by Gaby Chapman, English Teacher, CA
"As an English teacher in a small charter school (6th through 12th grades), I had students with a variety of levels of difficulty with reading and dyslexia. They had challenges with decoding, visual tracking, short-term memory, and/or timing. One was reading six levels below grade. I learned about BrainWare Safari and it seemed to be something we could easily incorporate into our program. The four students who used it were able to make significant progress. One 6th grader who was highly motivated moved from the lowest in the class to a strong reader. The 8th grader improved her reading fluency and also gained a lot of confidence from the program, volunteering to give a speech at 8th grade graduation. It was very rewarding to watch these students overcome some of the obstacles to their reading development and become more engaged in their books."
Homeschooling Parents Say ... Bolstering Their Abillity in Foreign Language Learning
by Darlene B., Mother of 4 Children, Living Abroad
"Since our children have been using BrainWare Safari, I have noticed that their memory and attention abilities were dynamically increased. We live abroad and my children go to school in the host language. I feel that this program is significant in bolstering their ability to understand and problem solve, most particularly in difficult foreign-language learning situations. My children love the program. I can assure you that the activities stimulate their brains and the activities themselves draw them back. I highly recommend this."
Parents Say ... Skills Quickly Transferred to Other Things
by Matt H., Father of a 7-Year-Old with Autism
"At the end of first grade, my son's teacher noted that, though he did exceptionally well academically, he had two major gaps--his ability to focus and his abstract thinking skills. Shortly thereafter, I heard about BrainWare Safari and we decided to give it a try. At first, the product frustrated my son. My wife worked with him on Rhythm Ribbet, just listening to the beat. A few minutes later, he ran into the kitchen screaming, 'I did it! I did it!" About two days later, I saw something amazing. My son was working on BrainWare Safari and he would visibly focus. He would lean forward in the chair and his entire expression would change. We had never seen this before from him. He quickly transferred this skill to other things--homework, games, puzzles. We thank you for an amazing product."
A Homeschooling Parent and Adult User Says ... I Have Much Better Concentration and Memory
by Ramona Baker
"We had an evaluation were recommended for about $14,000 worth of brain work. I bought Brain Safari for my 14 year-old son, my 15 year-old daughter and for myself ( age 55). I am nearly finished with the program. I cant say what it has done for the kids yet, but I know for myself, I have a much better degree of concentration and memory. I am looking forward to seeing improvement in my daughter's logic and my son's processing speed. My children enjoy the program and I have not had to remind them to do it. It cost us less than one hour of brain training. We all wish there were more logic problems in the program."
Parents Say ... Grades Have Improved
by Mary H. (Philip, Age 10)
"Whereas before Philip would come home and want to do other things because homework was too hard or would take too long. Now he comes home and does it. And the best part is his grades have improved."
Educators Say ... Preparing Our Kids for Problems We’ve Never Thought About
by Peter Kline, Author of "The Everyday Genius"
"Information is growing at a pace never before seen in the history of the world. Today we have billions of times more information than we had half a century ago. It is more and more difficult to find people who can do the jobs that need to be done today. Our children and grandchildren are growing up into a world where they'll have to deal with problems we've haven't thought about. BrainWare Safari is one of the tools that can make that experience delightful instead of frightening and threatening."
Parents Say ... A Miracle
by Chana F., Israel
"BrainWare Safari is a miracle. I would have paid anything for it, now that I have seen what it can do to help my son grow his brain right before my eyes. I am confident that it will transform his academic failure into brilliant success."
Educators Say ... The Program Boosted Their Self-Esteem
by Natalie Cordell, Teacher, IN
"I love BrainWare Safari and so do the students. The program is indeed a great way for the students to learn while having fun. Many of them have shown more willingness to work independently. The program definitely has boosted their self-esteem as they have graduated many levels. It is rewarding to watch them solve problems and reach success."
Educators Say ... I Could See Changes in Their Ability to Think Logically
by Michelle Fisher-Jones, Teacher, IN
"It is sad, as an educator, to see many students who come into my class lacking the confidence they need to be successful in school. It is imperative that students are given the opportunities to excel. BrainWare Safari was that opportunity and the students definitely took advantage of it. I could see changes in their ability to think logically and to solve problems. They looked forward to practicing the skills in BrainWare Safari. They just wanted to keep going."
Parents Say ... This Program Has Been a Gift
"Fourth grade was miserable for my daughter. Even though she did her homework every night and had a reading tutor, she wasn't able to retain facts, read at a second-grade level, and rarely passed tests in class. Her teacher requested holding her back. She started using BrainWare Safari two weeks before fifth grade. After just 3 weeks of practicing 4-5 times per week for 30 minutes each session, she was not only telling me her multiplication facts, but figuring out our her division facts. Her reading comprehension has increased and her ability to write paragraphs. This program has been a gift."
Educators Say ... I Just Want to Say Thank You
by Corinne Lake, Valley Christian Junior High
"Twice a week student groups report to a facility with laptops that have the BrainWare Safari software. They basically play games, but in the meantime are developing a mastery level at paying close attention to details and memory skill development. I just want to say thank you. The students are being helped and are enjoying the process very much. I think many students can benefit from this affordable software and will be recommending it to parents for giving their children some activity in the summer that is fun and educational."
Kids Say ... I Beat It!
by Adam K. (Age 12)
"It was really fun. Some levels were really easy, but others got harder and harder. I didn't think that I could beat the last level of one of the exercises, but I worked on it and beat it!"
Kids Say ... Lots of Stuff is Easier
by Rachel C. (Age 8)
"I can concentrate more and lots of stuff is easier."
Kids Say ... I’ve Gotten Better at Listening
by Drew D. (Age 10)
"I've gotten better at listening. I used to misunderstand stuff because I didn't read the instructions and got right to work, but BrainWare Safari taught me to slow down and double-check my work."
Kids Say ... My Teacher Was Very Impressed
by Rachael H. (Age 7)
"I think it was fun and it helps me with my memory. When I had Chinese class, I got all of them right. The teacher was very impressed."
Kids Say ... From B’s and C’s to A’s and B’s
by Jeremy P. (Age 11)

Kids Say ... Go at the Pace That Is Right for You
by Andrew T. (Age 11)
"BrainWare Safari taught me that if you are rushing in math you can get a lot of questions wrong, but if you go at a certain pace that is right for you, can get the problems right."
Kids Say ... I Think I’m Smarter
by Tim S. (Age 8)
"You learn and you have fun at the same time. I think I'm smarter because I do BrainWare."
Adult Users Say ... I’m Using the Focusing Techniques I Learned
by Leah Petrusiak, Journalist
"When I was a freshman in high school, my teacher told my dad, 'Leah doesn't know how to think.' As time went on, I realized I had trouble piecing together how certain events culminated in larger happenings. I often forgot events in my own history. While I've dealt with my disconnects in a number of ways, I decided to check out BrainWare Safari. Not only can a clinician use it to spot your trouble spots, you'll quickly find them out on your own--and your strengths as well. One unexpected benefit I realized was an improvement in my art-making ability. If found that I was more in tune with how textures, colors and sequences play off each other, having worked on the exercises that force you to from one complete picture in your head from three boards of Tic Tac Toe. I am also using the focusing techniques I learned when I throw my hat on top of my credit card and am able to form a mental picture of where it is."
Adult Users Say ... I Am Very Aware of How Specific Exercises Help Me in My Job
by Sam Kline, Construction Field Engineer
When I interviewed for my current job as a Construction Field Engineer, I was asked to take an aptitude test. I was told that very few people got halfway through the test. I completed 49 out of 50 questions and received one of the highest scores ever. Having used BrainWare Safari, I was able to process and respond quickly. I am very aware of how specific exercises help me in my job role. The directionality and visualization exercises have made it is easy for me to direct a co-worker right or left to set up instrumentation in the field even if I am not facing the same direction. And the scanning exercises help with noticing small details in drawings. To me, BrainWare breaks down the basic building blocks of thinking and learning."
Adult Users Say ... If I’d Had It Earlier, School Would Have Been Much Less Difficult
by Joshua Woodward, MSW, Chicago, IL
"I spent the better part of my years in grammar school in "LD" classes, where I wasn't challenged. I suffered when I made the transition to "Mainstream" classes. My performance was average at best, but I was able to teach myself the necessary skills to be as successful as my peers and did the same at all of the subsequent transitions to junior high, high school, college and graduate school. After having worked through BrainWare Safari, I can attest to its usability as well as playability. Had I been given such a tool in my early stages of learning, I believe my time in school would have been less difficult."
