BrainWare Safari Study OutcomesBrainWare Safari Study Outcomes
34 students in First through Seventh Grades at the Christian
Heritage Academy in Northfield, Illinois, participated in a study of
BrainWare Safari in early 2005. Half of the students used BrainWare
Safari at home for 11 weeks. The other half of the students served
as a control and simply fullowed their normal routines.
Outcomes, as measured by pre- and post-testing with the
Woodcock-Johnson III Cognitive Battery, showed significant growth
for the group using BrainWare Safari:
- 4 years and 2 months average improvement in
cognitive skills, compared to 4 months improvement for the control group.
- 1 year and 11 months average improvement in
tests of achievement (reading and math) compared to 1
month for the control group.
These results were consistent with earlier clinical experience
with previous paper-and-pencil or partly computerized delivery of
the methodology in BrainWare in a program called ACHIEVE. In the
earlier clinical setting in Lisle, Illinois in 2001 and 2002, 30
students with case histories of learning and/or attention problems
were provided with the ACHIEVE Processing Program.
Individual student progress was measured by pre- and post-test
using selected tests from the Woodcock Johnson III Cognitive Battery
and Tests of Achievement. The students experienced:
- Average improvement in cognitive skills was 4 years
and 8 months, following 11 weeks of the program.
- The students’ improvement in IQ averaged 18
points and ranged from 10 to 27 points.
