Cognitive therapy is a fully integrated system of drills and training exercises that are delivered in an intense, one-on-one environment, and are designed to attack and rapidly correct weak or underdeveloped cognitive learning skills. It is not designed to tutor or teach students academic subjects, rather it will develop the underlying skills required to learn effectively. Cognitive skills – auditory processing, visual processing, working and long term memory, comprehension, logic and reasoning, and attention skills – are fundamental to a person’s ability to receive, process, and retain information. The training program strengthens these skills allowing the student to learn efficiently.

The book “Smart Moves” by Carla Hannaford gives one on one movement exercises that helps integrate the different parts of the brain with the body. Children spend too much time looking at screens as substitution to moving their bodies. She and Dr Paul Dennison have some simple yet powerful body movement exercises that can change the physiology of the nervous system rapidly and effectively for adults & children.
