SMART brain training works in special education alongside students, parents and teachers to help address a range of learning difficulties. SMART brain training has been used in schools to help children with intellectual challenges and to improve learning across a range of subjects, including reading, writing, mathematics and verbal comprehension. Our intellectual skills intervention is called SMART training (Strengthening Mental Abilities with Relational Training). SMART teaches children the foundational reasoning skills crucial to vocabulary acquisition and mathematical reasoning. In effect, we give students the tools to learn more effectively. Moreover brain training re-mediates deficits in these skills bases that not only cannot be taught at school efficiently without extensive one-to-one assistance, and can even help children to catch up to and even surpass the population average in intellectual ability.
