3 Parts of the ACTIVATE™ Program

Cognitive Software

Cognitive Software

6 computer games improve 8 cognitive skills necessary for Executive Function.

Our sophisticated software has been developed to teach basic skills, while the child is having fun. Our games enhance the child’s ability to easily switch tasks, memorize sequences, categorize items, and develop thinking strategies.

The program recognizes a child’s strengths and weaknesses and can detect when a child makes an error. The program provides coaching and independent thinking prompts to aid the child in correcting his error. The beginning sessions are short and easy to master and combined with the structured physical activity component to maintain interest and enthusiasm. The difficulty level is adjusted up or down every 10-15 seconds, according to the child’s abilities.

Physical Exercise

Physical Exercise

Over a hundred physical exercises stimulate the same brain systems in the context of whole body and social activity.

Physical Exercise is a vital component of the C8 Sciences ACTIVATE™ program. The program consists of individual athletic activities as well as group or team games and athletic challenges with varying degrees of difficulty.

The games start out simple, and as the participants learn the athletic skills required to achieve success, the activities get more challenging and complex. Games such as soccer, volleyball and basketball teach team cooperation and social skills, while developing physical stamina and athletic skills. The program comes with a detailed handbook with instructions for implementing the program into your physical education curriculum. Jumping rope, martial arts, throwing and catching a ball and juggling are individual activities included in the physical exercise component for the child who might not be ready for participation in a group activity or group sport.

Nih Assessments

NIH Assessments

NIH Assessments

Built-in cognitive assessments, including the NIH Toolbox, are used for pretest, post-test, and progress monitoring.

The National Institutes of Health has developed a “toolbox” of cognitive assessments designed to measure cognitive growth. ACTIVATE™ utilizes three of the key assessments recommended by the National Institutes of Health.

These assessments are administered to each ACTIVATE™ participant at the beginning and the end of their ACTIVATE™ cognitive training program. The three assessments, the Flanker Task, the Working Memory Test, and the Go/ No-Go Test reveal each participant’s measurable growth, individualized results, and the return on your investment. ACTIVATE™ encourages these assessments so educators can analyze the success of the program with the real-time data to back up every step of the way. These cognitive assessments focused on executive skills tell us what children are capable of learning in the future – and what we can do to help.

3 Versions of the ACTIVATE™ Program

 

There are three unique versions of the ACTIVATE™ program. Whether you’re a parent, healthcare professional, school administrator or teacher, there is a program available to meet your needs. Each program consists of the brain-training cognitive exercise component, and the physical exercises and activities to complement and enhance the comprehensive cognition training.

 

Activate-circle-education

ACTIVATE™ for Schools

C8 Sciences is the only company to offer integrated computer and physical exercises – “cognition cross-training.” ACTIVATE™ for Schools is a comprehensive, advanced learning system designed to enrich the learning capabilities of every student enrolled. The program is especially beneficial for students with ADHD, autism, or other learning deficits. Teachers report improvements in classroom behavior, attention to detail, and classroom participation just weeks after the introduction of the ACTIVATE™ program to their students. Children adapt quickly to the computer based games and activities, and eagerly look forward to each day’s lesson plan. Educators love the Teacher Dashboard feature! Every student who uses ACTIVATE™ takes the NIH assessments at the beginning and end of their cognitive training course. Real time data is displayed for each student and reveals individual progress and gives comparisons between participating students and their peers. The schedule is flexible and can be fine-tuned to fit perfectly into your curriculum. The physical exercise program is well-researched and meets most state physical education requirements. The program provides students with a challenging and engaging way to learn the skills they need to be successful in school, and in life!

 

Activate-circle-healthcare

ACTIVATE™ for Healthcare

ACTIVATE Health is a complete and sophisticated cognitive training program that addresses the challenges that children with ADHD, autism and other cognitive issues such as inability to concentrate and focus, working memory deficits and overall frustration when it comes to learning. Children with these conditions often display inappropriate behavior at home and in the classroom setting. Parents seek therapy in an effort to help their child learn to behave more appropriately and to “fit in” without causing classroom disruptions. ACTIVATE health is a break through assessment tool for therapists, and other healthcare professionals who work with children who struggle with these concerns. The program will enhance your ability to treat your patients on a personal level, and help you create a treatment program based on the data and assessments that are a part of the ACTIVATE program. Cognitive strengths and weaknesses are identified quickly, and updated continuously. Healthcare professionals can partner with parents to discuss the assessments and address the immediate needs of the child. Clinicians have reported that the ACTIVATE Program is not only more affordable than other cognitive training programs, but that ACTIVATE provides more reliable data and assessments than other programs on the market.

 

ACTIVATE home

ACTIVATE™ at Home

The ACTIVATE™ Home program is designed for kids with ADHD and other attention deficit disorders and their parents. The program is flexible and easy to navigate, and can help you enhance your child’s ability to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment both at home and in the classroom. ACTIVATE™ can be used on your electronic device or home computer. The program consists of a series of brain training games and activities that are challenging, educational, and fun! Kids love to play the games that are fine-tuned to help them learn things like sequencing and categorizing. The program recognizes when the child makes an error, and coaches him until he successfully corrects the error and moves on to the next level. The games have delightful characters and graphics, just like other video games, but our games are designed to build your child’s confidence and self-esteem. The physical exercise component can be enjoyed by the whole family. Playing games, exercising, and building athletic skills contribute to the success of the program, and to the well-being of everyone in the family! You will see improvements in your child’s ability to concentrate, complete tasks, and follow directions soon after you sign him up for the program.
