Why a study methods & techniques workshop?

A study methods & techniques workshop can benefit us in many ways!

Analyse and evaluate strategies for effective learning.
Maintain positive thinking during learning.
Organise time and set realistic and smart goals.
Improve communication and teamwork.
Understand how our brains work when acquiring new skills.
Improve your children school performance.

At Neurovida we know the importance of providing each child with the right tools for them.

That is why when it came to designing our Study Methods & Techniques Program and our Back To School Booster Program, we worked closely with several teachers, our educational team and therapists to make sure we produced something unique and adaptable to needs of each individual child/adolescent.

We found that being able to incorporate the vast experience and expertise of this team allowed us to make sure we achieve the necessary balance between the academic needs and the benifits of brain training that is specific to our institution.

But what makes this workshop truly unique?

Created by a team of pedagogues, teachers and learning specialists.

At Neurolearning we have a team made up of educational psychologists, teachers and pedagogues with extensive experience in the field.

A workshop prepared for each child's needs.

As all of our programs are known for being tailored to the needs of each individual child, we felt the same policy had to be applied here. In order to ensure this, we will not only teach children the various strategies they can use but also create the opportunity for them to apply it to their own work by encouraging them to bring in textbooks and work they have been finding difficult or challenging.

Could my child benefit from this workshop?

If you are not sure, don’t worry, our specialists have put together a free screening test that consists of some simple multiple choice questions to help you identify difficulties your child may be encountering academically
