“It is as close to the fountain of youth…”

I believe it is as close to the fountain of youth that I am going to get. I have been using it for about 5 years and it has added at least 10 years to my life. I am going to be 92 but I feel 82. Keeping my brain healthy I know, has also helped me handle a number of medical issues.

Mark, Parent

“She can feel how much ACTIVATE changed her”

J says she can feel ACTIVATE working and how much it has changed her. She’s more observant, plans her schedule two weeks ahead rather than reacting at the last moment, is more goal oriented and a better listener. It’s like she matured 5-8 years’ worth since last June.

Dale, Parent

“She’s making much better decisions”

My daughter is 24, and says the training is making a big difference. She is more perceptive, better at noticing things and better at categorizing. She is tremendously different from 6 months ago and making much better decisions.


“An increase of 2.1 years spelling age in less than four months”

Testing at school showed an increase of 2.1 years spelling age in less than four months. This appears to have come about primarily because of the extra ability to focus. Now that B is reading regularly, I imagine there will be further improvements in his writing, spelling and achievements across the board.

Vice Principal, Urban School

“An increase in self-control and critical thinking”

Teachers report that this year’s first grade class – with a year of Activate from Kindergarten – demonstrate an increase in self-control and critical thinking. I can note this as I supervised first grade classes over the last two school years.

Lorenzo, Principal

“They’re happy. They have such positive energy.”

They are dedicated to this and they are getting something from it. They’re happy. They have such positive energy. They’re laughing. They’re proud of themselves. They’re following directions. They’re helping one another. Our kids enjoy this, and they look forward to it every day.

Regina, Parent

“Their reading and math scores have improved”

My boys love the program and their math and reading scores have improved! The program has helped them focus and improve areas like chess, piano and pitching in baseball.

Lori, Parent

“The format is engaging and appealing”

ACTIVATE uses a manageable amount of time to incorporate into a regular routine – just 20 minutes. The format is engaging and appealing and I don’t have to tie my son to the computer. It reinforces the idea that he needs to be a proactive participant. Thanks very much!

Vice Principal, Urban School

“There is a marked improvement in student behavior”

Teachers see an increase in student performance and concentration on classroom activities and improvement on classroom tests. Holistically, there is a marked improvement in student behavior of our first-grade class this year compared to last year’s which did not have the Activate program.

John, Coordinator for gifted program

“A change in their ability to sit, listen and do the task”

After several weeks, I noticed a change in their ability to sit, listen to our directions and do the task. They’re learning to focus, recognize patterns, strengthen their memory, and develop specific motor functions… all important parts of learning.

Amanda, Parent

“The assessment results finally convinced his school”

The assessment results finally convinced his school that S really can rise to the occasion when appropriately challenged. He needs to learn to focus on repetitive tasks and overcome frustration and fear of failure, and it’s great to have the training program to help with this.

Assistant Principal

“ACTIVATE…. One year to a level playing field! “

…what happens when low performing students are involved and ACTIVATED!


“It supports what we have been saying for quite some time”
