You have many products to choose from. This discussion is intended to help you choose the solution that is best for you.The primary factors to consider in choosing a program include:

  1. Need
  2. Affordability
  3. Delivery
  4. Accountability
  5. Administrative system
  6. Research and clinical background
  7. Intensity and depth of the training


What is your goal to accomplish with the training?  Does the student have significantly weak core cognitive skills, moderately weak skills, or are you looking to just fine tune skills?  Is the issue weak core skills or do you need a reading program?


How much can you afford to invest in the training?  There is a wide range of costs, but also a wide range of value in what you get for that cost.


Is the program only available at a clinic, a center, or is it available online?  If online, is there accountability to get the work done?


What is the degree of accountability?  It is one thing to buy a gym membership or home exercise equipment vs. hiring a personal trainer.  The training won’t help unless you do the work.  Clinical programs where students are accountable to a professional trainer generally deliver the best results.

Administrative system

For schools, does the training program have an administrative system that facilitates supervising many students? Or do they have someone they can partner with to manage this administration?

Research and Clinical Background

How much research and clinical background does the program have?

Intensity and Depth of Training

Many programs look good on the surface, but do not address a broad range of skills.  Some focus on skills or reading, but not both.  Does the training address your needs?

Choose the best

Proven clinical training with a professional trainer offers the best solution to help a student with relatively weak cognitive skills.
