Support for Teachers
BrainBuilder™ and Lumosity™ are two cognitive computer-based activities that target a variety of skills. I really like BrainBuilder™ because I appreciate the data it collects and how it tailors the lesson depending on what their current brain score is, as well as for its simplicity. The tasks are definitely cognitive challenging and some children can become resistant. Usually, I try to lower the intensity, but online programs, such as Lumosity, might be a better option since there are many more games from which to choose that target different areas of the brain. However, I find for my own children, BrainBuilder™ is easier because they know exactly what to expect and I do not have to explain how to play each game, and the session stops on its own. So even my 5 year old and son with limited receptive and expressive language are independent when using it.
