May 30, 2012 11:47AM
At Tucson’s inaugural Brain Camp, in just two hours a day, four days a week, over the course of a month this summer, children aged 6 to 16 can experience the benefits of improved focus and attention, improve working memory and auditory processing abilities, integrate sight and sound with physical movement to improve brain timing, and learn to relax his or her body.
Psychotherapist and Neurotherapist Andrea Russell and Speech-Language Pathologist and Neurotherapist Valerie deLar have joined forces to bring an exciting array of cutting-edge brain enhancement tools together for their new summer Brain Camp program. Activities include computer-based cognitive stimulation programs, interactive movement-based activities, biofeedback and neurofeedback training and more.
The Brain Camp is especially suited for a child that is seeking to sharpen his or her test-taking skills or struggling in school because of a learning disability. After determining areas of need through a brief battery of cognitive psycho-educational and performance-based testing, Russell and deLar will design a personalized program for each child.
