UT Dallas Center for BrainHealth Presents: SMART for Adolescents
akirchhoff@bdcs.org

Center for BrainHealth's Summer Brain Building Boot Camp and Small Group Sessions are filling up!

SMART is based on the cognitive neuroscience of learning and is designed to help students gain insight into thinking and learning and provide hands-on practice with using their brains optimally. They use a step-by-step approach to help students develop and strengthen critical thinking, problem-solving, and reasoning, as well as creative and innovative thought processes. They have several options for students who are going into 6th grade up to 11th grade. The program is called Strategic Memory Advanced Reasoning Training (SMART) and was designed by Dr. Sandi Chapman and Dr. Jacquelyn Gamino, both cognitive neuroscientists, over ten years ago. There are three different options for students:

  1. Our private one-on-one program –the student meets with the cognitive trainer individually ($2,500 for 12, one-hour sessions)
  2. Our after-school small group program – a small group of students works with one of our cognitive trainers ($1,200 for 12, one-hour sessions)
  3. Our summer "Brain Building Bootcamp"- where larger groups of students participate in activities and games that enhance the cognitive processes being learned in the cognitive trainings sessions. For the cognitive training sessions, we break out into smaller, age-appropriate groups, sixth graders, seventh and eighth graders, and high school students have their own separate age-appropriate sessions ($1,400 for 10 days – 9:30-2:30)

Students who participate, report that they are more efficient with homework, score higher on testing, and feel more confident problem solving, using depth of processing, and innovative thinking at school and in life.
