About Brain Training
The revolution of the 80s and 90s taught us how important physical exercise is for our overall health and well-being, brain fitness is the next step forward in that revolution. Just like your physical body, it is now scientifically proven that the brain can change its physical form and function throughout a person’s life span. This is known as neuroplasticity.
We apply the principles of neuroplasticity to improve cognitive skills such as memory, processing speed and attention. Success in school, work and in life requires these skills to work quickly and efficiently. When a participant’s cognitive functions are weak, they have trouble focusing their attention, are easily distracted, take a long time to complete a task, have difficulty remembering information and prioritising tasks. Research has now proven that these skills are trainable and can be improved with practice.
Executive Brains uses the latest scientifically validated activities including computertised, non-computertised training, mindfulness, biofeedback and neurofeedback programs that target cognitive weaknesses. During our workshops you will complete in a Brain Health Screener to identify cognitive strengths and weaknesses and engage in a personalized brain training program that will be tailored to your needs.
Not all brain training programs are the same. There are over 100 apps on the market to help improve people's cognitive skills such as memory, attention and brain speed. Some are just games while others are scientifically validated. Over the last eight years, Sheryl has trialed, researched and evaluated several evidence-based programs based on the principles of neuroplasticity that can help people improve their cognitive functions in education, employment and community settings. Sheryl has been trained in neuroplasticity programs in Australia as well as overseas.
She has worked with kids, youth, adults and the elderly including those with disabilities such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and people who have experienced trauma to successfully strengthen their cognitive weaknesses. She is passionate about helping people improve their lives through evidence-based neuroplasticity programs.
Sheryl Batchelor has a Master’s in Education and has presented at a number of conferences across Australia and has appeared on National Radio, ABC TV, in the newspaper discussing the benefits of engaging in neuroplasticity programs.
