ALPHA PROGRAMME FOR SCHOOLS
They trust our method
HARMONY OF THE BRAIN & HEART
Alpha is a science-based educational initiative, driven by the latest discoveries in the field of cognitive neuroscience.
This training provides students with cognitive and sensory enhancement, using a method that strengthens key competencies such as concentration, observation, comprehension, memory, intuition, empathy and confidence. Created by researchers, this method has been developed to ensure that all children are intellectually and emotionally balanced and ready to face life with confidence.
In today's environment, schools and families are now more open to the insights of neuroscience and activities that provide children the tools to improve mental health and well-being. Our programmes support teachers and educators to facilitate positive change, to navigate successfully through current and longer term challenges.
Alarming yet common concerns are reported by education professionals: problems with attention, motivation, concentration, loss of confidence, fatigue, anxiety and depression. The mental health of students has deteriorated significantly. There is a decrease in cognitive abilities due to excessive use of screens, lack of sports and contact with nature.The Alpha programme is the solution that contributes to good mental health, reduces stress and its harmful consequences. The activities increase self-confidence and emotional intelligence in a respectful and caring environment to facilitate learning, for students who will excel in all aspects of their lives.
AN ACCELERATOR OF CHANGE
Researchers in India have studied the possibility of improving cognitive development in children, as part of a general study of the effects of different brain training programmes. 2500 students in 12 schools experienced the Brighter Minds Alpha programme.Several hundred participated in the study.
External researchers were hired to evaluate the effectiveness of the programme.
A multidisciplinary team of public health, assessment, psychiatry and psychology specialists developed tools and conducted the surveys.
Promising and positive results were observed in the children within a very short period of time of 8 weeks.
The teachers observed that the children were calmer, more assertive and more participative in class, showed better attention and concentration, were less distracted, were less reluctant to talk to teachers in class, reflecting improved self-confidence, memory and self-discipline.
They also said that the programme should have started at the beginning of the school year so that students would benefit more.
The study found that Brighter Minds Alpha training had a positive impact on the following cognitive processes: attention, observation and memory.
It was reported that there were improvements in the children's self-confidence, expression and comprehension.
Today there is a growing awareness that the intelligence quotient (IQ) alone is not sufficient, but must be complemented by the emotional quotient (EQ).
Parents and teachers are looking for simple and effective solutions.Brighter Minds appears to be the "high potential" option to consider.
Its simple design allows school administrators to integrate it smoothly into the existing curriculum.
Today's world needs excellence, with leaders who are intellectually rich, emotionally rich, with a capacity for introspection. It is time to think and act in this direction now.
