Frequently Asked Questions

We've compiled a list of the questions we get asked the most.

What are the benefits of right brain education?

Your left brain is more logical, analytical and sequential and operates slower compared with your right brain which can give you the capability of speed reading, learning, higher IQ, the ability to master multiple languages, greater concentration and focus as well as the ability to achieve excellence in music and sports. Right Brain students have high levels of intuition and emotional intelligence and excel in problem-solving. They also possess photographic and linking memory skills and creative genius.

My Child is only 3, why is it important to start right brain training early?

Younger minds are like sponges and tend to absorb everything that they learn, so in their foundation years their learning possibilities endless. Right Brain training allows children as well as babies to build a large library of information in their subconscious mind that they retain for their whole lives. Our ability to learn decreases and if your child doesn’t learn how to use their whole brain during that rapid rate of learning decreases and your child’s innate right brain abilities becomes dormant beyond the age of six. Furthermore, since most modern primary and high school education programs favour left brain learning styles your child’s left brain development gains momentum.

How does the program benefit the child?

The brain is like a muscle and the more you exercise, the stronger it gets. Regular right brain training will enable a child to form much more neuro connections within the right brain as compared to children who do not attend right brain training. These extra neuro connections will increase the capacity of the brain as well as increase the speed at which children can absorb information and form linkages to solve problems. That explains why a right brain trained child is usually able to concentrate better, focus for longer periods of time and possess superior comprehension ability. They will also be able to articulate their thoughts better and will be more confident. With all these valuable skills they have developed, they are able to absorb concepts faster and that would lessen the time they would need to spend on studying and attain school-life balance.
