Your Brain's Blueprint
"Cognitive skills are a more reliable predictor of success than social-emotional skills or past performance.
Scientists have consistently demonstrated for over 50 years that cognitive skills are the key driver of academic achievement".
(eg. Cattell, 1971 & 1987; Woodcock & McArdle, 1998; Ferrer & McArdle, 2004)

Developed by neuroscientists at UPenn Medicine and the National Institute of Health, and used by NASA, students take our online Learning Profile Assessment to discover THEIR specific learning superpowers and how to maximize THEIR strengths.
Students will walk away with a comprehensive learning profile as well as an online toolkit that aligns with their strengths and needs.
This is a fantastic resource to share with their learning team (teachers, coaches, tutors, and more) to increase understanding of the student's strengths and needs, with tangible strategies to support their ongoing learning journey.
