Want the best for your kids?? Want to give them an edge? Help them Train thier Memory!

"Research* shows that using memory training to challenge the minds of young learners has a direct impact on attainment and concentration at school, and that working Memory is a more powerful predictor of academic success than IQ. Training the Memory also leads to an increase in problem-solving ability - or fluid intelligence, as it is sometimes known – and the gain in intelligence is proportionate to the amount of training.
