Brain Training for Kids with ADHD – It Works But Does it Last?

Hi, I’m Arnie – the Maxi Mind Learning guy.

One of the most common questions I get is what happens when a Maxi Mind Brain Training Course is over? Do we need booster courses? Do we need to come back every year?

The short answer is, No. The improvements you get are generally maintained and typically continue to grow long after the course is over.

How is that? You may ask: If I stop exercising my body, I’ll get weak and flabby again. Why doesn’t that happen when I exercise my brain?

The short answer is Neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change itself. When specific activities are done with the right frequency and intensity, the brain will actually grow, and connectivity will improve. The result is better mental performance.

The American Automobile Association covers brain training for its customers because of studies that have shown that the risk of an active senior crashing a car is slashed by 50% in the 10 years following a brain training course.

The Journal Pediatrics has published research showing that ADHD kids who did brain training with neurofeedback do better at home and at school and with lower doses of medication, even six months post-intervention.

And what neurofeedback protocols were done in that study? Exactly the same ones used in every Maxi Mind Brain Training course!

When Maxi Mind Learning launched its brain training service in 2010, we gave it away in schools. At one school we had pre and post measures of focus, learning and behaviour. 19 of 20 kids substantially improved and those improvements are still retained over 5 years later.

But if good is good, better is better. Some clients do return to us after a year or so to get another brain training course to take them to an even higher level.

At Maxi Mind Learning we are never satisfied with how well we’ve done, so why not join us on the road to continual improvement. Down the road, you will thank us even more.
