What does brain training have to do with Social Skills?

Posted on: October 23, 2015

For a person diagnosed on the high level of the Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) scale, intelligence is very often not in question. Cognitive skills are typically at or above normal rankings for these individuals. So, why are things so tough academically? The answer is that it isn't about skill or intelligence; it's about the ability to discern what is being asked!

Cognitive (brain) training helps to activate the areas of the brain affected by ASD. Communication is stimulated by rapid, repetitive exercises, which allows for the individual to catch the subtle (or often, not so subtle) nuances of instruction. Interaction with a brain trainer encourages the "give and take" of discussion that is often lacking for a person with ASD. The results can be amazing!
