A child’s mental growth and development is important, and starts even before they let out their first cry.
As parents, we only want the best for our children, and sometimes can find ourselves having difficulties with our child’s growth and development. After all, it’s one of the toughest yet most rewarding jobs in the world!
Here are some common learning challenges your child may face when learning:
- An inability to focus and pay attention
- Prone to making unnecessary mistakes
- Always struggling with memory retention
- Having difficulty arranging or sequencing their thoughts
These challenges hinder aspects of your child’s growth and development, such as their literacy skills, number sense, and ability to focus for extended periods of time. They can and will eventually affect other parts of your child’s life as well, like their social skills and even their self-confidence.
Most of you may be wondering if it is too late to start now?
No. It is not too late to start.
Brain Training Programmes, such as those offered by ThinkersBox for children from 5 to 12 years old have a whole range of benefits, including improving and helping with those challenges your child may face, as seen earlier on.
The brain training programmes from ThinkersBox offer these benefits for your child:
- Increased confidence and ability for independent learning
- Improved levels of comprehension
- Faster learning speed and task completion
- Stronger problem-solving and visualisation skills
- Enhanced logical processes
We understand that parents can find it difficult when their child struggles with learning challenges or difficulties.
This is why you should entrust this challenge to ThinkersBox. Based on more than 70 years of scientific research and application, our proprietary brain training programmes cater to each child’s unique learning abilities and speed. We believe that every child is different, and our goal is to help them maximise their performance and achieve their fullest potential.
Cognitive Development Training Programme
The ThinkersBox team of trained brain coaches believe in taking full advantage of a child’s potential.
For our Cognitive Development Training Programme, an initial brain profiling evaluation is offered before enrolment, to test for various cognitive skills, such as determining how your child:
- Is able to focus and pay attention
- Can process and grasp new concepts
- Best understands information
- Problem-solves and remembers information
- Receives and takes in visual information
Online Brain Booster Training Programme
Our Online Brain Booster Training Programme has our educators, giving immediate feedback and responses to your child, alongside close supervision to help them think through the challenges curated for them.
Attention Boosting Classes
Additionally, if you’re looking for a course for your child’s development during their school holidays, ThinkersBox has Attention Boosting Classes that are intensive, highly targeted and stimulating training sessions usually conducted during the school holiday periods, and can last from 3 days to 3 weeks long.
The current classes we offer are:
- Intensive Attention Booster Class (5-12 years old)
- Fast Thinking Booster Class (5-12 years old)
- Visual Thinking Booster Class (5-12 years old)
- PSLE – Boost My Brain Performance Intensive Class (11-12 years old)
- Brain Boost Play Camp (5-8 years old)
All programmes are carefully organised according to each child’s age and key learning needs.
Here is a quick overview of what ThinkersBox’s brain training programmes focus on by age group:
Kindergarten 1 to 2
(5 to 6 years old)
Children in this age group are naturally curious and physically active. This means they are more vocal in asking questions and moving around to understand the world around them.
Brain training integrates the use of kinesthetic, visual, and auditory senses that strengthen cognitive skills. Our key focus is to build a strong learning foundation for our young learners to have a smooth transition for Primary school.
Primary 1 to 2
(7 to 8 years old)
Brain training for children in this group focuses primarily on effective cognitive development, training memory retention, focus, auditory, visual alertness, speed, agility to adapt, resilience to setbacks, time management abilities and hand-eye coordination.
For these students, training is centred on strengthening cognitive abilities and improving mental stamina to prepare your child for more challenging subjects in the future.
Primary 3 to 6
(9 to 12 years old)
Children at this stage are primarily preparing for examinations and tests, which is why training them to be exam ready and brain smart is a top priority.
Tailored personalised brain training identifies strengths and weaknesses for sharpening key learning skills for better performance (within and beyond the classroom).
Lessons are catered to train for more effective thinking processes, hone higher order processing skills and build stronger mental resilience to take on challenges at higher levels of learning ahead.
Ranging from a span of 3 days to 3 weeks; the Attention Booster Brain Training Programmes, like holiday camps, are lessons that are intensive and targeted towards getting your child ready for a specific brain training goal.
