"BrainWare Safari is a learning game that
provides a well-designed series of fun mental challenges that,
uniquely, are modeled on the specific intellectual tasks measured by
IQ tests. In a world of hype regarding glearning games and
brain development software, BrainWare Safari is the software product
most likely to result in significant real gains in IQ scores, when
used as recommended and complemented by a healthy physical,
emotional, and social environment. Learning software has
finally become worth buying."

"I have been in education for over 30
years and I have seen many 'state-of-the-art' educational programs
that promise to show huge gains only to be proven to be 'acutal
results may vary.' BrainWare Safari is in a class by
itself. I cannot speak to the masses. However, from my
personal experience, this is the the software of the future.
My 12-year-old son has been using BrainWare for about 1.5 months and
I have actually seen improvements in his reading retention and
comprehension. Although he has only been on the program for a
short while, I have noticed his approach to learning has improved
dramatically. Mike is a very good athlete, basketball being
his best sport. We have even noticed a change in his
decision-making on the court as a point guard. BrainWare has
changed the way Mike approches different situations. Mike also
demonstrates a greater degree of confidence while his communication
skills also show improvement. Overall, we are very impressed
by the changes we have seen in our son. Please continue to
promote this wonder (BrainWare) -- it is truly the next step in the
evolution of education."

"Parents are always asking what they can do at
home and BrainWare Safari is something fun they can do to help their
children develop cognitive skills. We train them on the
program, assign BrainWare 'homework,' and do follow-up at The
Center. Through our cognitive training exercises, we can see
when the children using BrainWare Safari reach a turning point, most
often in their reading ability. It's an effective product that
we know ensures results."

"The first time Brendan started to use
BrainWare Safari, he became so thoroughly engaged with the
activities that he did not want to stop. He actually set his
alarm clock for an hour earlier the next morning so he could do more
of the BrainWare activities before leaving for school. When
his parents went to thier parent-teacher conference recently, after
he had been using the program for several weeks, his teacher was
very impressed. She observed that he is more focused in school
and more confident in his ability to independetnly complete his
classroom and homework assignments."
Grandmother of Brendan (age 12)
"When I heard about BrainWare, I immediately
thought of my grandson, Gregory, who has Attention Deficit Disorder
(ADD). BrainWare is helpoing Greg learn strategy, which
is good. If he can't do an exercise becuse he has a problem
with his ADD, he develops a strategy so that he can find a way to do
it. He learns how to use his brain in different ways to help himn
with his speed. We're seeing benefits out of this thing that
we never thought we woud get which are helping us combat his
Grandfather of Gregory (age 11)
"At the end of first grade, my son's teacher
noted that though he did exceptionally well academically, he did
have two major gaps -- his ability to focus and his abstract
thinking skills. Shortly thereafter, I heard about BrainWare
Safari and my wife and I decided to give it a try. At first,
the product frustrated my son, especially the Rhythm Ribbet
exercise. So my wife workd with him, starting with listening to the
beat without trying to replicate it. A few minutes later, he
ran into the kitchen screaming, 'I did it! I did it!'
About two days later, I saw something amazing. My son was
working on BrainWareSafari and he would visibly focus. He
would lean forward in the chair and his entire expression would
change. We had never seen this before from him. He
quickly transferred this skill to other things -- homework, games,
puzzles. We thank you for an amazing product."
Father of a 7-Year-Old with
"BrainWare is a miracle. I would have
paid anything for it, now that I have seen what it can do to help my
son grow his brain right before my eyes. I am confident that
it will transform his academic failure into brilliant success."
"During the 2005-2006 school year, we allowed
students with records of poor discipline and misbehavior from our
Indianapolis Public Schools' Boys Academy to work with BrainWare
Safari. According to the teachers, the rsults were simply
amazing. BrainWare Safari has had a tremendously positive
impact on our boys and enabled them to demonstrate high measurable
achievement through enhanced cognitive skills, visual awareness,
auditory skills, thinking skills, and memory enhancement. I
urge you to give this software your hightest consideration."

"I am pleased to share this letter of support
of BrainWare Safari software. Edgar Evans School posted
fantastic gains in student achievement after just one year using
this software. The key to BrainWare's success is in its
ability to strengthen children's cognitive skills: visual
processing, auditory skills, logic and memory. I would
recommend BrainWare Safari to my colleagues without
heistation. I hope to be able to provide this invaluable
software to many more generations of children who attend my school."

"I love BrainWare Safari and so do the
students. The program is indeed a great way for the students
to learn while having fun. Many of them have shown more
willingness to work independently. The program
definitely has boosted their self-esteem as they have graduated
many levels. It is rewarding to watch them problem solve and
Teacher, James A. Garfield
"I have been a teacher for fourteen
years. It is sad, as an educator, to see many students who
come into my class lacking the confidence they feel they don't have
to be successful in school. I feel that it just takes that
special teachable moment to reassure them that success is
posible. It is imperative that students are given the
opportunities to excel. They must then take advantage of the
chances they are given. BrainWare Safari was that opportunity
and the students definitely took advantage. I could see
changes in their ability to think logically and to solve
problems. The students looked forward to practicing the skills
on BrainWare Safari at their schedule times. While they were
working on the particular skill or skills, they just wanted to keep
going! I am excited at the thought that all children in the
Indianpolis Public School system could be using BrainWare
Safari. They would all benefit so much from it."
Teacher, Charity Dye
"It's been a phenomenal experience to watch
both children go through the BrainWare program, especially
Brianna. Brianna was having some challenges in school, and
after she completed BrainWare, she made the honor roll, which has
been exciting and a very proud moment for me as a father."
Father of Brianna (age 8) and Angela
"Before, Philip would come home and want to do
other things because homework was too hard or it would take too
long. Now, since using BrainWare Safari, he comes home and
does it. And the best part is his grades have improved! "
Mother of Philip (age 10)
"We've definitely seen some improvement with
our children. Parents will do pretty much anything to help
their kids and equip them for life later on. This is
definitely a tool to do that."
Father of Kendall (age 11) and Clay
"I think that all kids have strengths and
weaknesses and they feel much better about their weaknesses
when they know their strengths. And BrainWare did that for
Matt. I had a hard time believing the results because he
showed such a huge amount of improvement. I took him to a
psychologist for 6 hours of testing. The results were all
validated. I was just the happiest Mom in town."
Mother of Matt (age 9)
"BrainWare Safari is like calisthenics for the
brain. The exercises "tone" mental faculties just like
physical exercise helps tone muscles. The brain like a muscle
responds to graduated exercises that are designed to stretch but not
overwhelm it. While muscles gain in strength, agility, and
endurance as they are conditioned, methodical use of brain-toning
activities leads to stronger concentration, faster thinking speed,
keener reasoning, and greater mental stamina. BrainWare Safari
is toning for the intelligent brain."
—Jean-Claude Dutes, Ph.D.
"When I started using BrainWare Safari, I was a
laborer with a mid-size construction company. After using
BrainWare Safari for a period of time, I had the opportunity
to interview with the largest construction company in the
state. I took an aptitude test to see what position I was best
suited for. I was amazed how similar the test was to the
exercises in BrainWare Safari. I received one of the highest test
scores ever given at the testing site, and was offered a position as
a field engineer. In this role, I operate sophisticated
instrumentation and deal with complex structural drawings. I
have often felt that BrainWare has given me the tools needed to
begin the learning process through such difficult subject
matter. To me, BrainWare breaks down the basic building blocks
of thinking and learning. It is a fundamental approach to
being sharper both in the classroom and in real life."

"Information is growing at a pace never before
seen in the history of the world. Today, we have billions of
times more information than we had half a century ago. The
challenge of dealing with all that information is enormous. It
is more and more difficult to find people who can do the jobs that
need to be done today. Our children and grandchildren are
growing up into this world. They're going to have to deal with
problems we haven't thought about. BrainWare Safari is one of
the tools that can make that experience delightful instead of
frightening and threatening."

"I'm happy with BrainWare. I've seen some
definite improvement, I think in his temperament more than
anything. His attention is better, and his memory, but what I
really notice is that I don't have to repeat myself 20 times to get
him to do something."
Mother of Nicholas (age 9)
"BrainWare Safari is not reading or math.
Rather it teaches the skills necessary to learn. My daughter,
who spent 4 1/2 years in an institution in Russia, has completed 73
levels so far and is thrilled. She has even completed some
areas with memory and sequencing, areas she was very weak in and
thought she could not do. I see my daughter making gains on
this versus other computer games she plays. This is unique!"
Mother of Kristi (age 8)
"BrainWare is a vital addition to the tool
chest of the home schooler who wants to excel… it increases the
potential of every child, whether learning disabled, typically
developing, or gifted. Every home schooler should have a copy."
Homeschooling Parent, Minnesota
"Today kids don't get enough challenges in
school. BrainWare provides a game-type environment, but with
challenges to improve their concentration, logic and thinking,
step-by-step. I didn't need to push Joy to do BrainWare
Safari. Children beg to play it. They don't realize
they're learning new things, improving their skills; they just enjoy
it. Parents love to have software at home which benefits the
kids but also which kids enjoy."
Mother of Joy (age 7)
"I have been using BrainWare Safari in my
clinic for a year. After children use BrainWare Safari for 8
weeks, I can show that they have gained many standard scores.
With BrainWare Safari, children increase their attention and memory
skills. And their brains are able to read faster, remember
more, and reason more. I was amazed when I started to use this
program in my clinic. Patients come in and say, 'Let's do
BrainWare!' BrainWare Safari is truly unique."

"I noticed a change in Katelyn's willingness to
work independently. She seems a lot more willing to take on a
task and work through it on her own. It also seems like her
reading comprehension and engagement in reading has improved."

"BrainWare is more intensive and strategic in
terms of building connections in the brain. It's
wonderful. Other games don't have the depth of research behind

"BrainWare is a comprehensive learning
enhancement program for developing, enhancing, and maintaining the
fitness of the brain. BrainWare has built-in integrative and
accelerative tools that develop vital cognitive functions. All
of these skills are scientifically and clinically proven to be
critical for academic achievement and professional performance,
while improving self-esteem and behavior for all learners."

"BrainWare works on skills that can benefit
children for their lifetime. Other skills they may forget, but
this is different. It's like Chinese traditional medicine; it
cures your disease at the root."

"I want my name on the list for the adult
version! I actually looked forward to trying some of the
practice mode because I could feel different parts of my brain
Mother of Julie (age 11)
"You don't always know how to address the issue
when your child has a problem. The good thing about BrainWare
is that I can see my child struggling and I know the program is
designed to do something specifically to help the problem, even when
I don't know how."
Mother of Rachel (age 8)
"It's an alternative to taking your child to a
professional. It's like the difference between taking your
child to a music lesson and sitting and waiting, or having the music
teacher come to your house ... It's like you can manage it, and you
can give that gift to your child."
Mother of Drew (age 10)
"It was good quality time together."
Father of Zach (age 6)
"When I saw the BrainWare program, I liked that
it repeated a lot of activities and that they were making
connections in the brain. I studied these strategies for my
pre-school classes and junior high education, and learned that
repetition makes brain connections. From a parent and a
teacher's standpoint, I was just thrilled with this program."
Mother of Michael (age 8)
"BrainWare built Drew's confidence to know that
he could go further even when it was hard. It was interesting
too. He liked the way the characters grew up. I think it
translates to the kids and they feel they're growing."
Mother of Drew (age 11)
"Jeffrey is more patient. It's not easy
for him to concentrate, but he gets frustrated less quickly."
Mother of Jeffrey (age 7)
"BrainWare Safari is revolutionary - for the
first time, the kinds of exercises I have used one-on-one with
patients have been incorporated into a fun and entertaining video
—Gary Vogel, O.D., FAAO
"Jonathan actually requests to play the games
and spend time on the program because BrainWare is fun for
him. As a result of using the program, I have observed an
increase in his confidence in starting new and difficult tasks, and
improved attention span, and an improved desire to cooperate in
completing his school work."
"As a clinician and a parent, I have never seen
a program that offers the intensity and diversity in the different
activities that BrainWare Safari offers. For the price, for
the time involved, for the motivation of the child, there's nothing
out there that even comes close. It should be a staple in
Clinician and Parent
"Before BrainWare Safari, Adam used to drift
away a lot and get distracted when he was doing challenging problems
especially in math. Now he's more focused. We're really
pleased with that. It's a wonderful program. Adam has
two younger borthers who watched him do the program; both want
to get into it very quickly."
Father of Adam (age 12)
"One thing I'm very impressed with is
it's not just the same old approach to learning that we've been
using for years -- teaching our children in the same way we
learned. It was the answer I was looking for, to help Zoie
move into the next generation of learning. I'd be willing to
pay whatever price for this software becuase I thought BrainWare was
really good. I can't wait until we start using it with Drew,
our 5-year old."
Father of Zoie (age 7)
"BrainWare Safari is like exercise for the
brain. Our brains are constantly changing and
developing; the more we exercise them, the faster we learn,
and the better we process the information we receive.
BrainWare Safari encompasses a broad array of 41 cognitive
skills. Working on those skills can help kids perform better,
do tasks more efficiently, remember what they've been studying in
school better, and be able to stay on task longer. The skills
children learn in BrainWare they will apply every day of their
—Russell Osnes, O.D.
"BrainWare Safari has helped Zoie think outside
of the box, learning to solve problems, not just in one set way, but
incorporating different, more creative and visual functions.
It also promotes parent-child bonding. It's not just a
babysitter than you sit your child down in fornt of. You see
the positive emotional changes. I loved to see the big smile
as she passed levels. That excitement is not something I've
seen with other computer products."
Mother of Zoie (age 7)
"I noticed a difference in his schooling.
When I went in to see his teacher, she told me how well he was
maturing, how well he'd done in his classes, and how easy it was for
him to make progress. She now had to keep up with him in his
schoolwork! Before he was slower and afraid to make
decisions. Now he makes decisions for both of us. He
likes it; I love it!"
Mother of Demar (age 10)
"I spent the better part of my years in grammar
school in "LD" classes, where I wasn't challenged. Thus I
suffered when I made the transition from "LD" to "Mainstream"
classes. My performance was average at best, but as I worked
my way through the transition I was able to teach myself the
necessary skills to be as successful as my peers. I did the
same in all of the subsequent transitions to junior high, high
school, college, and graduate school After having worked
through BrainWare, I can attest to its usability as well as
playability. Had I been given such a tool in my early stages
of learning, I believe that my time in school would have been less
difficult. I would recommend this product to anyone who has
children currently in or soon to be starting school. It will
give their children an excellent head start with respect to the
skills they will need to do well, and they will have fun doing it
along the way."
