NEW TESTING OPTIONS!
Do you need documentation to show your child is eligible for special services?
Do you have a high academic performer who would benefit from an IQ test to demonstrate eligibility for gifted classes or scholarship opportunities?
New testing options are now available in house for students. Achievement testing, IQ testing, Auditory processing testing, and testing to evaluate presentations of ADD and ADHD are now available individually or as a package.
Standardized Achievement Testing helps to identify which of 22 areas are at, below, or above grade level.
IQ testing can identify 20 areas where strengths, weaknesses, or average performance exist as a predictor of whether certain school and work tasks are likely to be easy or difficult. Evaluations in the Standardized Cognitive Test Battery include underlying brain function such as short term memory, long term memory, brain processing speed, visual perception, listening comprehension, and symbol coding. We use this test to help plan out an optimal brain training program and to measure its effectiveness. Addressing areas that test low, with brain exercises, can take a struggling student and turn them into a class room or workplace powerhouse.
Dyslexia, a fancy way to describe difficulty reading, spelling and or comprehension, often correlates with low performance on the Test of Auditory Processing Skills. It is not a case of whether one hears, but how the brain interprets what it hears and reads. This is critical since our language is a sound based writing and spelling system.
ADD and ADHD are common concerns of many. Our T.O.V.A. (Test of Variable Attentions) evaluations both those who don't stay on task as well as those who are impulsive. This testing is regularly used by physicians, who are the ones who diagnose ADD and ADHD, to help them determine if medication or supplementation is appropriate. Follow up testing may help to evaluate a need to increase or decrease a dose for maximum efficacy.
T.O.V.A - $200.00
TAPS - $200.00
Standardized Achievement Test (full battery) - $400.00
Standardized Cognitive Test (AKA IQ test- full battery) - $400.00
Full complement of tests (all 4 tests run on the same individual) - $1000.00 at a $200.00 discount!
Testing includes free consultation to discuss test results and help with a plan of action.
Additional services include a complete cognitive training program as well as accompanying the family to physician and school appointments as needed.

Cognitive Skills Trainer
Owner and Operator of
The Brain Trainers and
Brain Trainers Connection
Cognitive skills training protocols designed and developed by Brain Potential Institute are available in my training center as well as via Skype.
I have had the opportunity to become fully versed in the unique and advanced cognitive skills training program system designed and developed by Jane Davis of Brain Potential Institute (BPI).
I exclusively use BBB's “Building Better Brains” protocols. With a new screening test battery, The Brain Trainers now can evaluate learning skill deficits in individuals as young as 3 years old while providing detailed analysis of the strengths and weakness of the skills.
Brain Potential Institute’s cognitive skills training programs are tailored to the specific needs of the student taking into account age, medical indications, cognitive deficits, as well as sensory issues, fine and gross motor components as well as speech and social components in need of enhancement.
Designed and developed by Jane Davis, PT, M.S.H.P, the training programs now available through The Brain Trainers come with a unique approach. As a pediatric physical therapist, who herself has Cerebral Palsy and underwent years of therapy herself, Jane has developed and designed her programs to work cognitive training with overlays of PT,OT, Speech and other therapies. Recognizing the need for therapy to have rapid results and to be fun for the recipient, the program is individually tailored to the needs of the student with a focus on their weakness, resulting in rapid improvements without wasted time on skills that are adequately intact.
The programs available through The Brain Trainers now include:
QTπ (pronounced “cutie pie”) – a program designed for the 3 years to 5 year old
Genius In Training (G.I.T.) – comprehensive cognitive skills training offering over 46 potential skill activities from which to develop a student driven training protocol
CLUES- Cognitive skills training with a specific focus on auditory sound analysis development. Introduction of 26 sounds and codes provides a sound neurological repair of the auditory sound analysis system.
LABS – Language Arts Blueprint System introduces the rest of the sounds (there are 44) and all the possible codes used to represent these sounds in the English language. In addition to completing the full English language sound code neurological pathways, this protocol addresses reading comprehension, reading fluency, vocabulary skills, and written expression, to name a few.
Grey Matters – A cognitive skills training program specifically designed to address difficulties associated with memory loss, stroke and other medical conditions more frequently seen in a more senior population.
QTπ, G.I.T, and Grey Matters may be worked in concert with CLUES and LABS for a complete neurological overhaul.
For those who are not local to the Fort Myers, Florida area, Brain Potential Institute offers their one-on-one cognitive skills training program utilizing Skype for video teleconferencing for one on one training remotely without compromising the training results. VOLT (Virtual On-Line Training) may be the approach that is best for you.
