His teacher, Ms. Mattson, says “His biggest challenge before was staying on task and completing work.” After Hardy Brain Camp she noticed a 50% improvement in his ability to pay attention, focus and work independently. His mom has noticed a 50% improvement in his ability to manage frustration during homework time and he is completing his work much more independently. On his post-test for thinking speed, attention and concentration, he raised his score from the 33rd percentile 99th percentile.
“I can actually do what I always wanted to do – multiply!”
“Hardy Brain helped me do my homework faster and learn faster. It really will help anybody and it’s really fun. I did good on the STAR (California State Achievement) test and I got a medal (at the school award ceremony). I was a top student in the school. It felt really cool. It was really different… I can’t describe it. “
“Language is easier. Last time it was hard but now it’s getting easier.”
He made 76 months’ of growth in reading, 31 months’ of growth in math, 72 months’ growth in processing speed. His parents saw a 50% increase in his ability to focus as well as 75% academic improvement. They noted a 50% increase in both his ability to organize ideas and communicate, and his ability to focus on work. He also achieved a 50% increase in his ability to listen and follow directions and a 50% decrease in his frustration levels.
“Hardy Brain helped me understand much better and do things much faster. I can read the words and do the multiplying much better.”
“Before, she lost focus easily. Now she is able to complete assignments on time.” Her parents add, “Better in reading and language arts. Better!” She made 8 months’ growth in reading, 38 months’ growth in math, and 15 months’ growth in processing speed. Gabriel’s parents saw a 50% academic improvement, a 50% improvement in the ability to focus, as well as a 50% increase in finishing work on time.
“I can focus on math. It helped me know my multiplications. Math was kind of hard. Now I know all my multiplications. When I finished Hardy Brain I started doing really good on my sentences and reading log too.”
Her parents say, “Her math is more exact.” And her teacher commented, “Her biggest challenge was academic skills in all subjects. She has increased patience and is much more confident.” She made 2 months’ of growth in reading and 4 months’ of growth in math. Her parents saw a 50% increase in her ability to pay attention, a 50% increase in her ability to complete work independently and to finish work on time. They also saw a 50% decrease in Natalie’s frustration levels.
It was really difficult for him to block out the noises and distractions of the other students. At his BGC clubhouse, staff had to help him every day to take out his homework and make an effort to get it done. Once he trained with Hardy Brain, many of these issues began to disappear. His teacher reports that he is “able to work through distractions more easily now. [He is] more confidant and takes initiative.” The BGC staff is seeing similar progress. He has shown a 50% improvement in his focus and his ability to complete work independently. His mom was happy to say, “He’s able to actually absorb the information he’s learning in class.” His post-test for thinking speed, attention and concentration jumped from the 42nd percentile to the 68th percentile.
He happily tells us that “Now I know how to read a chapter book. That makes me feel smart. Right now in class I was doing a 6 page math packet and I finished in like 10 minutes – and it was all multiplication!” His teacher, Mr. La, says that he “can repeat the skills and complete a task now. He has the ability to work for longer periods of time.” When asked to rate him on a variety of skills necessary to succeed in school, Mr. La reported that before training, he was very low on all the skills. After training, he evaluated that he had progressed to average on almost every skill. His parents also see those gains. They have seen him improve 50% in areas like: academics, listening and following directions, managing frustration, completing work independently and working with others. BGC staff comments, “He listens a lot more. He gets started on his homework easier.”
“(Before Hardy Brain) it used to be hard for me to read paragraphs. (After Hardy Brain) I read fast and I understand. I do it all by myself and I get a good grade. It feels happy.”
