We're OPEN!  Cognitive Testing and 1-on-1 Training via Zoom & Skype for New and Existing Clients.


Get the advantage of stronger Memory, Learning, Reading and Attention Skills

Better Brain. Better Life. Better Future.

BrainAbility works with kids and adults (age 6 - 96), training and strengthening the cognitive skills the brain uses to think, read, learn, remember, and pay attention.


Our individualized, one-on-one cognitive development programs are helping them remember better, focus more and think faster.

Whether you're average, advanced or struggling, with a faster, smarter brain, life (and learning) is so much easier!


The science of cognitive development training (brain training) is based on Cognitive Plasticity, the brain's lifelong ability to grow and change.  Your brain can increase existing neural pathways and create new ones, no matter how old you are.


This means the way you think, learn, read, pay attention - even your IQ - is not set in stone, but can be changed and improved.

All it takes, is 3 easy steps: 

Step 1 

We begin with a baseline Cognitive Test to identify which of your cognitive skills may be showing signs of weakness. During the COVID-19 period, the test can be done online from your home or office. The test is used in more than 46 countries around the world and available in 23 languages, including English and Afrikaans.


The Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills scientifically measures the performance of the following key cognitive skills:

• Long-term Memory

• Working Memory

• Processing Speed

• Auditory Processing

• Visual Processing

• Logic & Reasoning

• Attention 

• Word Attack skills (not a cognitive skill but essential for fluent reading)

Step 2 

Your test includes a detailed feedback consultation to provide you with your test results and options.

The report you will receive following the completion of the test will give you a detailed look at individual cognitive strengths and weaknesses in each of the cognitive areas. It will also be our guideline for a specific program recommendation.

Step 3 

When you sign up for one of our cognitive development programs, we partner you with a dedicated Cognitive Trainer who guides you through intense but fun brain building exercises. The 1-on-1 training is done remotely during the COVID-19 period, via Skype or Zoom from the comfort of your home or office. 

Take the 1st Step and schedule your baseline Cognitive Test today.

Don't  wait one more day, week or year! A baseline Cognitive Test is the 1st step towards pinpointing strong and weak cognitive skills, and gaining the information we need to help you overcome memory, learning, reading and attention struggles.

Experts predict students could return to school a full grade level behind.

As a parent, you know that spending months away from live classroom instruction can trigger a setback in a child's learning.


If your child was already struggling before lockdown homeschooling began, his/her return to school could be difficult.

You worked hard to help guide your child's learning from home,

but you worry and wonder: "Is he really ready for the rest of this school year?" 

Let us take your worry and wonder away. We help build brain skills that are essential to learning, like Reading, Memory and Attention to make catching up - and keeping up - easier.

Start with this Complimentary Learning Skills Screener to find out, based on your observations, if your child is showing the warning signs of a cognitive weakness.

For real answers though, we recommend a baseline Cognitive Test.  The test will tell us why your child are experiencing certain challenges and show you which cognitive skills may need to be targeted and strengthened to experience real change. The test takes about 45 minutes to an hour and will:

  • Pinpoint specific weaknesses that are holding your child back

  • Reveal the "why" behind struggles you may have been observing for some time

  • Provide a detailed scientific look at your child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses

  • Give you valuable insights into the next-best-step
