Unlock your students’ potential and enhance their focus, self-control, and memory!

ACTIVATE™ improves focus, self-control, and memory skills through a combination of computer and physical exercises based on the latest neuroscience research from Yale.

  • Measures and Improves Executive Function Skills
  • Delivers Real-time Cognitive Data
  • Greatly Improves Academic Outcomes
  • More Cost-effective Than One-on-One Tutoring

Assesses Needs and Abilities

ACTIVATE™ provides an early assessment of a student’s special needs and abilities. Conventional assessment processes are time-consuming and very expensive, and so they are reserved for children who demonstrate clear signs of cognitive or emotional issues. Most kids just sink or swim until a problem is noticed. By then they have already fallen behind.

Think how valuable it would be to have a simple, immediate, low-cost assessment. Think how many kids could be put on a success trajectory at the beginning of their formative years. Think how many kids could be saved from high-cost, disruptive traditional education intervention programs.

Scientifically Designed Tools

Assessing cognitive growth requires scientifically designed tools. In order to combat the lack of uniformity and the questionable validity of assessment tools available to educators, parents, and clinicians, the National Institutes of Health has developed a “Toolbox” of cognitive assessments.

Upon a careful review of the assessments available from the NIH Toolbox, the C8 Sciences™ Scientific Advisory Board has recommended a battery of four core assessments that are especially appropriate for measuring the executive functioning skills of young children.

Activate-circle-education

Every student who uses ACTIVATE™ takes the NIH assessments at the beginning and end of their cognitive  training course.

This allows us to report:

Measurable Growth

The cognitive assessments show measurable growth for all students enrolled in the program.

Return On Investment

Allows you to see results in increased attention and focus that reduces behavior and discipline events.

Individualized Results

Individual student data is provided to classroom teachers and district administrators.

The Brain Behind the Brain-Training

 

BWheadBruce E. Wexler, M.D.

Bruce E. Wexler, M.D. is professor emeritus of psychiatry and senior research scientist at Yale School of Medicine and director of the Neurocognitive Research Laboratory at the Connecticut Mental Health Center. In 35 years plus of neuroscience research, he has advanced the understanding of brain plasticity and been an international leader in developing computer-presented brain exercises to treat cognitive deficits in people with psychiatric illnesses. His patent-pending innovations led to the development of the ACTIVATE™ cognition cross-training program for children and adults. Dr. Wexler graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University, studied psychiatry at Anna Freud’s Hampstead Clinic and Neurology at the Institute of Neurology, Queen’s Square, London. He received his Doctor of Medicine from Albert Einstein College of Medicine and training in psychiatry at Yale. He has received multiple highly prestigious research grants from the National Institute of Health and private foundations, including a Career Scientist Award and a grant for “paradigm changing medical research” from the Director of the NIH. Professor Wexler has published more than 100 scientific papers and articles. His book, Brain and Culture: Neurobiology, Ideology, and Social Change (MIT Press), has received international attention. Dr. Wexler has given invited and keynote lectures throughout North America as well as in Europe and Asia.
