Children with both general and specific learning difficulties and are too young to read, can use and benefit from the specially designed KidStarter SMART brain training program that is available only under the supervision of a professional who has purchased the professioaml suite of SMART tools . Children with a whole host of developmental difficulties will also benefit from this program.
KidStarter Training is designed to bridge the gap between early language development (age 4+) and the ability to undertake regular SMART brain training.
It prepares younger users (mental age 4-9) for SMART training by accelerating the development of basic relational skills but using non-arbitrary stimuli such as pictures of toys and household objects in the place of the “random” syllables used in SMART training. KidStarter training requires that the child be guided by a professional, teacher or other caregiver, as each task may require reading and explanation. A caregiver should help the user to understand each task and guide them towards the correct answer, short of telling them what to do.
Regular SMART brain training is also useful for older children with language delays or other learning challenges so long as they can read to some extent before commencement. This is so that they can engage with the training withour parental supervision.
