What is SMART Brain Training

People looking to improve their mental performance ask us what is SMART brain training and what does it mean?. Well SMART brain training was developed by the RaiseYourIQ team (psychologists, education psychologists, learning experts and teachers) to help any person or child improve their intellectual learning skills and improve thier IQ levels. The science, research and intellectual capital behind our course is exclusive to RaiseYourIQ.

SMART STANDS FOR; Strengthening – Mental Abilities with – Relational Training. SMART Brain Training has been developed by RaiseYourIQ from over 10 years education and training research. The founders of RaiseYourIQ; Dr. Bryan Roche and Dr. Sarah Cassidy are education leaders, psychologists and published authors in the field of “Relational Frame Theory”. They continue their work and research in this field today. RaiseYourIQ have not borrowed the SMART science from some experts or university. We ARE the experts and have the scientific evidence to prove the superior results our users enjoy.

So what does this mean to someone looking to improve their learning ability. SMART brain training helps the learner to become expert in critical cognitive skills, called Relational Skills. These cognitive skills underlie just about everything any of us do in business, in education, work and in everyday decision making and problem-solving. Simply put “SMART brain training teaches people how to learn faster and easier”.

The online SMART brain training course is like any other education or self-improvement course, it involves just 30 minutes of effort a few times per week with the end result of improving a range of intellectual skills, higher IQ and a fitter brain. RaiseYourIQ is the only Brain Training company offering online relational skills training based on the tried and tested methods of applied behavior analysis (ABA). This learning system was developed over decades in a research tradition started by the psychologist B.F Skinner. Skinner was not a brain scientist but an expert in the science of learning and teaching. Skinner’s ideas eventually led to the development of supremely successful treatments for a whole range of educational and intellectual deficits including autism spectrum disorders, and his approach taught us how to help individuals reach and surpass their intellectual potential. RaiseYourIQ have built on this science to create a truly unique and life rewarding learning system to improve IQ and brain health.  SMART brain training is suitable for children,adults and anyone seeking to reach their potential in school,business or life.

SMART brain training for intellectual improvement

The SMART brain training course teaches core relational skills across modules that will improve the user’s skills in;- Using vocabulary
– Understanding word meaning
– Grasping basic and advanced logic
– Remembering information
– Using numbers for mathematics

 

Will I be learning maths or reading if I sign up for SMART?

No! SMART brain training is a problem solving course involving a series of games – the problems are short and logical. What SMART does is teach you how to learn and how to think clearly and logically. We don’t actually teach you any information about maths or anything else!. But SMART makes learning and understanding everything much easier.

 

Can my gifted child benefit from SMART?

Gifted children often present with as many difficulties as children with lower than average IQ’s because typical education systems are targeted at the average range individual. So while a gifted child may already have a very high level of intellectual skills, they may not be expert at organizing their knowledge, at sequencing information or at sustaining attention for long periods of time. Thus they may be able to provide accurate answers, but they may not always be able to provide these answers quickly and succinctly. SMART trains the user in a range of key intellectual skills to a very high level of precision and speed, thus making even a gifted child more fluent at responding to the challenges in their environment.

Why increase my intelligence or IQ?

Intelligence is defined at the ability to learn, understand and make judgments or have opinions that are based on reason. Being intelligent means having the ability to acquire and use knowledge for solving problems and adapting to the world. IQ is simply the unit of measure for expressing the results of intelligence tests. Specifically, IQ is the ratio of a subject’s mental age (as determined by their performance on an intelligence scale) and chronological age. There are many types of intelligence, but only standard IQ predicts your success at school and in work. In fact people with higher IQ scores complete more years in school and have higher status jobs. Recent research has also found that people with higher IQs are also happier and healthier. While you do not need to have a high IQ for its own sake, improving your intellectual ability will help you deal more effectively with school and work challenges, as well as make decisions and solve everyday problems more easily.

 

Why do you ask profile questions?

It is very important that we ask our customers to provide certain information that will help us to provide the best possible training service. Remember, the SMART Brain Training course is tailored to each user, so without your profile information we cannot deliver the most effective training for you, and we cannot improve our services and products for other users. You can alter your profile at any stage by choosing from the drop down menu under the Account link at the top of the RaiseYourIQ home page.

 

Is it really possible to increase intelligence?

We were once told that intelligence or IQ was fixed for life. However, years of research by doctors and psychologists has lead to the discovery of the importance of relational skills to intelligence and it took several more years to by scientists to figure out how best to teach these skills. Today we know that IQ can in fact be increased by quite a degree. There have also been considerable advances in neuroscience in recent years, that have led psychologists to conclude that the brain itself can be made “fitter” with training and can respond and adapt to improved learning opportunities. Even leading authorities, such as Professor Robert Sternberg, now agree that IQ can be raised.

 

 

Brain Training Questions – Frequently Asked Questions.

SMART Brain Training for Kids

SMART Brain Training from RaiseYourIQ is great for kids and students. The SMART Brain Training course teaches kids how to learn not just improve memory. The brain training is designed to raise IQ levels and form a long lasting method to acquire knowledge.

SMART brain training is based on Relational Training.

 

Each and every day, parents and teachers teach children relational skills routinely without even knowing it. For example, parents inadvertently teach young children the concept of “sameness” in normal language interaction. To be more specific, a parent will not just teach a child one word for a television set, they may in fact use two. On one occasion they may refer to it as the “tv” and on another as “the box”. The child will have to be explicitly told in the early years that given this information, “TV” and “box” refer to the same thing. Any confusion shown by the child is met with assurance from the parent that whenever two words are used for the same thing – those two words have the same meaning as each other. This is just one way in which a child learns to understand what “same” means and how “same” relations can be derived across multiple words and objects in logical ways. This in essence is a skill required for vocabulary expansion. If it were not for this skill, each and every word in the child’s vocabulary would have to be taught individually and related to each other word individually (i.e. billions of individual learning tasks).

SMART training is a tool that can aid in every kids development because it removes barriers to education and the reaching of their potential. RaiseYourIQ leaves the supposed “maximum IQ” in the rear view mirror. Everyday we help not just of children with borderline and mild learning difficulties, but all children to learn reasoning skills and strengthen their mental abilities with relational training.

The brain training methods in both SMART Kids and SMART Adult are the same. However the SMART brain training course for children has backgrounds and animated characters that make it a lot more fun learning experience for children and big kids. Regardless of whether you want to raise your IQ for school,business or personal development, the SMART brain training course should take between 3 and 6 months to complete.

How often should I do Brain training?

 

While every user is different, our research suggests that 2-3 times per week for approximately 30-60 minute sessions appears to be optimal brain training for maximum IQ gains. You should NOT brain train more often than three times per week. Your intellectual skills will improve most when brain training is spaced out evenly across a long period of time (i.e., several months at least). In the same way, you will get more physically fit by training in a gym for an hour per day for 20 days, than you will by training for 20 hours all in one day!

 

Is there a best time of day to do brain training?

 

While there is no set best time of day, we do recommend doing SMART brain training when you are not overly tired or stressed. We suggest you include your brain training course as part of your weekly schedule. Try to include So pick a time of day when you don’t have other things competing for your attention or when you are not overloaded with distractions.

 

My child does not appear to be able to complete his/her stages? Should I help him/her through it?

 

SMART training does require a certain amount of task persistence. If your child does not engage with the programme, they will not benefit from it. So there is no problem with you assisting your child with training, and even sitting with them if necessary. However, it is very important that they are answering the questions and not you. As they will only gain maximum benefit if they are actively engaged with the learning process.

 

My child is not motivated to complete their stages. What should I do?

 

Your child will only benefit from this programme if he or she engages with it. While we have “gamified” this program as much as possible, it is after all an educational intervention and not an a form of entertainment. For some children, parents or guardians may need to use some sort of external reward system for getting a child to engage with the program, in the same manner in which a guardian might use an incentive system to encourage a child to complete their homework. Our advice is to use rewards for effort, not just for success, although you may wish to add small extra rewards for completing stages. These rewards should get bigger as the program progresses as they get progressively more difficult. While we have tried to make this leaning as fun as it can be, parents and guardians can do a lot to make a child look forward to their training and to passing stages.

 

Is it better to use this program during school breaks or during the school year when my child is in academic mode?

 

This largely depends on your own individual set of circumstances and on the preferences of your child. Many users have found it best to use the program during the school year because they can then apply everything they are learning to their school or college work and this will make many classes easier for them. However, research from the field of educational psychology also supports the idea that learning takes time to “consolidate” and so training during relaxed periods free from other pressures also has its advantages.One real consideration is that you or your child may have so many activities and so much homework to do during the school term or college semester that fitting in SMART training seems impossible. If this is the case, it can be treated as a fun leisure activity that is done at weekends, holidays breaks and so on. The training may take longer this will but it will be at least as effective if not more so due to being spaced out over a longer period.
