Train the Brain Intervention Guidelines

·         At Train the Brain we focus on individual tuition as we have made a conscious decision to offer remedial teaching and therapy one-on-one to provide high quality intervention that meets the individual needs of each student.

·         Train the Brain does not provide behavioural therapy. Should a child have behavioural difficulties, the services of excellent therapists could be recommended.

·         To build new pathways in the brain, repetition is needed. It is not viable to remediate learning difficulties effectively during one tuition session per week only. It is therefore expected that students should practice reinforcement work on what they are taught at Train the Brain regularly at home at least 10 minutes per day, preferably not less than 4 days a week

Financial support is available for these specialized interventions and  tuition. Contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
