Fit Brains for Kids: Sparky's Adventures
Fit Brains is designed by Dr. Paul Nussbaum, an award-winning neuroscientist. Fit Brains apps have more than 3 million mobile users, have been rated #1 in education in over 80 countries and are regularly used by a variety of public schools, universities, health institutions and top-tier organizations.
Fit Brains: Sparky's Adventures is the best child brain development program for the iPhone & iPad on the market today!
A UNIQUE COGNITIVE APPROACH TO DEVELOPMENT
Cognitive abilities are an important foundation for early childhood education. There is a strong connection between the development a child undergoes early in life and the level of success that the child will experience later in life. Early childhood is a period when the brain has its highest levels of plasticity, which is the brain's ability to form new pathways and structures.
“The [U.S.] Education Department said it would change tests used for admission to public school kindergarten and first-grade classes in order to focus more on cognitive ability and less on school readiness.” – New York Times (Feb, 2013)
Cognitive development begins at birth, so one is never too young to begin challenging and strengthening the brain. This app was designed to be a tool for children, while they are at home or on the go, to play and have fun, while also developing critical skills they will use throughout their lives.
A LIBRARY OF ADAPTIVE BRAIN GAMES
The app's entire library of fun kid's brain games begins at a basic level and adapts in difficulty to match the appropriate level of each child. This allows children to just pick up the app and play, while the app seamlessly adjusts to their optimal skill level. In this way, the app is able to provide both novel and complex stimulation, which is crucial to brain health at any age. This is particularly true for a young brain, because of the rapidly developing brain cells that can assemble into neural networks and provide a foundation for learning.
PARENTS CORNER PERFORMANCE TOOLS
The app contains a unique "Parents Corner" that offers a variety of tools & charts to view the progress of your child. See how your child is doing in the five major brain areas: Memory, Concentration (Attention), Problem Solving, Speed & Visual. Detailed charts are provided for each brain area, as well as an overall Fit Brains Age Index, which is the age group that your child is currently performing the closest to.
THE SCIENCE OF FIT BRAINS
Fit Brains is a scientifically-designed brain fitness program developed by Dr. Paul Nussbaum, one of the top clinical neuropsychologists in the U.S. with more than 50 peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Nussbaum is an Adjunct Professor of Neurological Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
IN THE NEWS
New York Times:
"There is a gradual growing awareness that challenging your brain can have positive effects," Dr. Cohen said... "Every time you challenge your brain it will actually modify the brain," he said. "We can indeed form new brain cells, despite a century of being told it is impossible."
"I logged on during a break at work and got so hooked I ended up playing their brain games for an hour."
"What's unique: Complex, richly illustrated and thought out brain games with different levels and storylines. Summed up: Very dynamic."
"It's a game playing product but the twist here is that all of the games help exercise and train your brain!"
