Intelligence or IQ is not set for life. Anyone can increase their intelligence levels and IQ scores by training the brain to better learn regardless of age. Working the brain to improve memory processing speed, problem solving and reasoning skills all contribute to increasing intelligence levels. The acquisition of intellectual skills alongside the ability to read and comprehend, is known as crystallized intelligence, and with practise or interventions like brain training will improve with age. Research has shown that online cognitive training designed to improve attention, working memory, and brain control has shown enormous gains in improving intellectual performance, especially in fluid intelligence. So Yes, any child or adult can increase intelligence with training.
