Declaration of Independence

Thursday, July 4th, 2013 by admin

As we celebrate the July 4th holiday in this country, we emphasize freedom, independence and the right to so many opportunities that other countries do not provide. We experience these freedoms due to the persistence and determination of many others before us.

Children with learning disabilities and other neurological disorders face many obstacles, as do the parents and caregivers who support them. The challenges are numerous with each new day, but the children persevere! They go to school; they face those teachers; they engage with their friends; and they participate in sports and other extracurricular activities! They are strong through their challenges.

Researchers have found that kids who exhibit certain characteristics are more likely to succeed in life. Some of these characteristics include self-awareness, proactivity, perseverance, goal setting and using support systems and emotional coping strategies. These characteristics can be taught and nurtured over the summer. Allow your child to spend time alone in nature to become aware of their surroundings, their thoughts, and the way their bodies work (walking, running, biking, climbing trees). Think ahead by making grocery lists or packing lists for outings. Learn how to do something new and keep at it until it becomes natural. Set some personal goals – or make a Summer Bucket List – to accomplish by the time school begins. Continue seeing your support personnel, like the therapist, the psychiatrist or the pediatrician to check on physical growth and other changes taking place during the summertime! All these activities support growth in the area of Independence!

The best way to motivate your child is to help him/her experience success – a great way to do that is through Brainjogging! Declare Independence from tutors, tantrums, and the torture of watching your child struggle! Give the office a call or drop us an email! Make it a better summer for everyone!

Brainjoggers Burst Into Summer!

Brainjog daily and prepare your mind for the academic year ahead!

Brainjoggers, you are the key to your own success!

Brainjogging twice daily will keep you on your cognitive toes. The 2013-2014 school year is your year to shine! You will be more than capable of excelling; you must believe in yourselves, just as we, at Brainjogging, believe in you! You are so very smart – and by Brainjogging two times daily over the summer, you will be very prepared to excel this school year! Your hard work, combined with Brainjogging, primes you to be on top of your academic game. Keep up the good work!

Remember to continue Brainjogging twice daily; it is imperative that you stick with your routine. Generate word lists from the books you read over the summer. If possible, look on line at the requirements for your grade next year. Then, make word lists to use for eye movements to familiarize yourself with materials before work is assigned. Generating word lists and staying on top of your academics will allow you to stay a step ahead of your peers!

Brainjogging wants you to be aware of information even before your teacher explains it to you; this way, all of the information has a “home” in your brain and will fit nicely with all of the other wonderful things you know.

We at Brainjogging are so very proud of you and all your success! You will continue to thrive this next school year – keep doing what you’re doing, and the sky’s the limit!

All the best for a great Summer,
Shirley Pennebaker and the Brainjogging Team
