Agility Game

The ability to switch tasks easily is central to intellectual ability.  It is as important to be able to pivot to a new and workable problem-solving strategy. This executive functioning skill is important for a range of organizational tasks at school, work and in everyday life. People who can shift quickly between tasks and prioritize projects tend to be more efficient. The Agility game challenges your brain to switch between different types of relational reasoning tasks, moving from trial to trial and within a set time limit. 

Benefits

  • Improves ability to work faster
  • Multitask with ease
  • Enhances ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking

Memory

Working memory is an extremely important aspect of general intelligence, so much so that measures of working memory are often used as a quick guide to general intelligence levels. While there is more to general intelligence than simply being able to bring up information using short-term memory to solve problems, it is an extremely important skill for many aspects of classroom success. 

Our custom-built SMART reasoning training challenges you to solve problems after the task has been set forth, but is removed from the screen before the player must give the answer. Users can increase the degree of challenge by increasing the length of time they must retain the information in memory before they answer the problem.

Benefits

  • Improves memory
  • Retaining and recalling information

Mindfulness (Helps manage General and School Anxiety)

We are strong supporters of the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach which has over 1000 published, randomized control trials proving its effectiveness as a psychotherapeutic treatment for a whole host of psychological difficulties. We have included some of the more common ACT practices and metaphors that you will come across within ACT literature. We offer some of our favorite practices for each of the ACT processes. Additionally, we have included a few brief discussions on what some of those processes are. Our brain games offer a range of practice levels for all ages, with some practices designed specifically for children and others tailored to teens and adults. 

Finally, we have included some personal practices we have gathered from listening to our friends, who are not only clinicians and academics, but professionals who have made mindfulness part of their daily practice.

You will see in the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science ACBS website that ACT has been successful in treating a wide range of physical and psychological difficulties that are, more often than not, fairly treatment-resistant. ACT is now recognized by the American Psychological Association as a gold standard treatment for coping with chronic pain.

ACT is also being used for working with treatment refractory OCD at Harvard University’s McLean Hospital for inpatient pediatric sufferers. Additionally, ACT has also been shown to be effective for a host of other neurological difficulties. For example, workplace stress, test anxiety, social anxiety disorder, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and psychosis. It has further been used to help treat medical conditions such as chronic pain, substance abuse, and diabetes.
