The recent launch on May 2nd of RaiseYourIQ.com has generated enormous media and public attention in Ireland, where the product was first developed. Our online SMART training product, which is offered as a form of intellectual skills training, has been shown to raise general intelligence as well as help with several intellectual difficulties, as well as improving general school performance.
The launch was been met with enormous public and media attention resulting in appearances on every major TV and radio network in the country, TV and radio news, and many national and regional newspapers. Offers of appearances on flagship prime time TV shows such as RTE's The Late Late Show were made within days of the launch.

At the launch in Rathmore National School in Co. Meath, Dr. Bryan Roche, co-developer of the software said; “Much of what we need to know in order to solve problems cannot be figured out by the brain on its own and involves skills rather than mere brain mass. The skills that make up intelligence - relational skills - must be learned and even a brain that is highly developed has to learn how to solve problems. The SMART system, unlike some ‘brain training’ games, does not work by merely enhancing memory, it improves the ability to reason logically and think clearly, so it also leads to improvements in verbal ability, perceptual reasoning and speed of information processing. The programme we have developed teaches a range of basic “relational skills” that facilitate more intelligent thinking. Relational skills were first discovered by psychologists using a theory known as Relational Frame Theory, which over the past two decades has revolutionised the way we think about learning and intelligence.”
