    We did this for our daughter who was 6.5 years old at the time.  At fall conferences her teacher said something was amiss, as did her teacher towards the end of last year, attention issues and poor reading comprehension.  However, since she was performing at grade level she did not qualify to be looked at by the school district whose policy is that a child must be two grade levels behind to qualify for services.  
    We began with the initial assessment which is not part of the program cost, it was an additional $99. They use the standard Woodcock Johnson Cognitive Skills Test for this first evaluation.  Based on what we were seeing with our daughter were expecting to see a low processing speed and low short term memory, but instead found that she was at age or a year ahead in all cognitive abilities tested.  Baird, the director, was very honest in saying that given the expense of the program and given that our daughter had no deficits that he recommended waiting on doing the program.  He continued to say that should we decide to do the program that their program does help with attention issues and that they guarantee an increase of at least two years in at least one cognitive skill.  We did decide to do the program, we did not want to wait unlit our daughter slipped below grade level at school.  
    Our daughter was just barley old enough for the program designed for her needs.  The center selected a trainer that they felt would work well with our daughter and we were quite impressed with this young lady's education and prior experience in the field.  Our daughter's program began December 4th.  She started off very excited about the whole thing, the initial exercises to "train the brain" were fun to her and seemed like games.  Our schedule was a bit grueling but what made it so really was how far away from us the center was, we do not live in the metro, so the commute was the killer.  The training is done in a room with others being trained since at school kids will have to be able to perform in a classroom setting with all the noises and distractions.  
    The first third or so went well, then things started to slide.  As the exercises got more difficult and more challenging so did our daughter.  None of us expected her to deteriorate the way she did, but the center had experience with this as having a child go down this path was not new to them.  The trainer that had been chosen for our daughter was newer and had a bit of a struggle in dealing with our daughter's melt downs, but the trainer supervisor was always there to help.  Just before the midterm evaluation the director made the recommendation that if our daughter's sessions did not get back on track we should stop the program and would get a pro-rated refund and we could finish the program at a later date when she was ready.  Things did improve and we stuck with it.  It was not all roses till the end, but it went well enough that she made progress.  There was on session where our daughter was crying under the table and there was no getting her back form that so they sent her home early and scheduled a full length make up session at no extra cost. 
    After the 12 weeks were over the Woodcock Johnson test was re-administered and it showed that she had jumped two years in all cognitive skills but one.  We consulted with both her reading and regular classroom teachers all of whom saw improvements in our daughters performance and attitude in school.  Another big thing our daughter came away from this was a sense of confidence and perseverance.  Before she used to say she couldn't do something, get frustrated, and walk away, but that is not the case anymore.  We also saw a dramatic improvement in her reading skills take place after the program was completed.
    The program was very expensive but please note that we did not shop around.  When you calculate the cost over the number of hours of personal one on one training it comes out to less than $100 per hour, it sounds a little better put that way, but again, we have nothing to compare it to.  Keep in mind too that all materials are included as is the incentive program (Brainy Bucks), the final testing, and the 1 year re-evaluation (they guarantee 90% retention rate of gains made).  The waiting area is clean and comfortable, the bathroom is nice and clean, there is free WiFi and beverages, and all the staff are friendly and helpful.  Communication was always excellent, easy, and timely both with the center and with the our trainer as we were in direct contact with her as well.  There were days when weather was a factor for all involved but everyone was always so on top of things.
    I do recommend this center and this program to anyone who has a child who is struggling.
