ENDORSEMENT BY JOHN STOCKTON
“As a professional athlete for nineteen years and a father of six, I have come to understand the importance of motor skills as they relate to learning. The most positive program I have seen that integrates intellectual and motor skills development is the work done by Pat Rosenbury at BrainLinking, Inc.
A chain is only as strong as the weakest link, likewise, a child, as a teen, or even as an adult is only as strong or as intelligent as their weakest trait. For example, if a child seems ‘bright,’ even gifted, but has trouble reading because of an undetected eye coordination problem, or because they cannot seem to concentrate, they will show poorly in school. He or she will sooner than later feel inadequate, maybe even ‘stupid’ when the opposite is true. Being labeled as such can add to the frustration.
Pat Rosenbury of BrainLinking identifies those weak links and sets up a program designed specifically for the individual’s needs. The exercises are designed to encourage the hemispheres of the brain to work together in order to synchronize movement and make sense of all the input a person receives constantly. Without this sensory integration it is difficult to concentrate or focus. It is difficult to remember things. It is difficult to even ‘calm down’.
Perhaps the quickest, most noticeable difference will be a person’s confidence level. As soon as the individual understands the reason for their difficulties, and that they are correctable, they will realize that they are smart. Their entire outlook will change immediately.
The improvements are tangible and measurable. I have personally witnessed some very impressive results, firsthand, with my own children, my friends’ children, and even with professional athletes. I am so convinced of its benefits that I am personally recommending and endorsing this educational breakthrough.
I receive nothing for this endorsement. I am simply thrilled by the results and excited by the possibility of others benefiting from this program the way my family has. It is tremendously challenging, successful, and believe it or not, fun!”
OTHER SUCCESS STORIES
RECOMMENDED by PROFESSIONALS
GREATER PEACE & CONFIDENCE IN SCHOOL WORK & ATHLETIC ABILITY
“My son worked with Pat on the balance board. Using her techniques produced a noticeable difference in the way my son concentrates, his physical and mental balance, and his outlook on life. In fact, I saw a greater peace and confidence in his school work and athletic ability.
Pat has truly unique and progressive teaching abilities, and she builds trust with her students. I highly recommend her to anyone searching for further assistance with a child struggling with school or looking to improve upon academic skills and concentration.”
TOOLS TO HELP OUR KIDS LEARN
“The information that Pat is bringing will give us valuable tools to help our kids be strong and efficient learners. If our brains are fundamentally ready to learn, we can do amazing things.”
FINE ART OF FOCUSING & SUSTAINED CONCENTRATION
“It sounds so simple, even obvious. . . ‘Getting ready to learn.’ But not until now, after decades of teaching, have I witnessed an approach yielding such success. Just a few minutes a day sets the stage, maximizing the learning process by actively teaching children the fine art of focus and sustained concentration. This is a must for educators and parents alike.”
BALANCE & CONCENTRATION LEAD TO IMPROVED MATH, WORK COMPLETION & BEHAVIOR
“I have been using the balance board activities and concentration drills with my 12-14 year old students on a daily basis. The results? Math understanding has increased measurably and assignments are completed in less time with greater accuracy. Inappropriate behaviors have decreased. Now class time is actually fun and enjoyable for all.”
“I’ve noticed with my own daughter that by stimulating the gross and fine motor systems, developmental leaps take place. Pat is a very dynamic instructor and presenter who is bringing us cutting-edge information.”
PRE-K – 4th Graders
DYSLEXIA HAS BEEN MITIGATED – CONFIDENT & HAPPY NOW
“As a quadruplet, Lily has an especially easy time comparing herself to others. Teachers told us to stop comparing her to her brothers. They said she was “normal” and the boys were advanced, but over time it was evident to me that she was not quite normal.
Her brothers had taught themselves to read before they began kindergarten. At the end of second grade Lily was still struggling. When she asked Santa to make her smarter, I knew it was time to take more drastic measures. We pulled her out of public school and began homeschooling, but that wasn’t enough.
That’s when I was introduced to Pat Rosenbury and BrainLinking. Everything Pat said in her class at the Utah Homeschooling Convention was exactly what Lily seemed to be. We signed her up for the BrainLinking program, and in no time at all she was gaining confidence that I only dreamed of before. Now, a few months later, she has advanced two reading levels and is getting better reading scores than her brothers. She loves to read! She offers her ideas and help to her brothers. She walks with happy confidence instead of sulky anxiety that she had before. Not only did we find a “cure” to her dyslexia issues, we found a way for her to be happy. Thank You!”
HE LISTED READING AS A STRENGTH
Our younger son, Charlie, was significantly behind in reading. He was on a Kindergarten level getting ready to enter the 2nd grade. Frustrated with the traditional tutoring and reading programs, we were looking for a different approach to learning when we heard about the BrainLinking program. When we started this program, his reading speed could not be calculated and comprehension was a struggle. By the end of the BrainLinking program Charlie was reading nearly 100 words per minute!!! He had jumped 3 grade levels. We were so pleased with his progress! What a relief it was to have him reading on grade level. I never imagined that he would be able to improve so much in a short period of time. Furthermore, when he was tested at the beginning of the school year, he received above average marks on his DIBELS testing in all areas. He even listed reading as a strength at his parent teacher conference. His overall confidence has soared since this program.
“BrainLinking works! It really works!”
BALANCE BOARD ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN LIFE SAVING
“My second grade son is now a different kid at school and home. He’s not as restless. He can sit in his desk at school and complete all his work. His mind is still very active and he is still very busy, but he doesn’t seem as scattered or restless. The balance board activities have been life changing for my son. He can be restless inside his head –and after a while on the Balance Board he calms down and his racing thoughts are cleared. We will continue all the activities and games for a very long time. It’s amazing!”
LOVES TO READ NOW
“Alex couldn’t read and I was at a loss. Typical reading tutoring wasn’t the answer. I knew he was smart and it frustrated me – I learned what was wrong and how I could help Alex learn.Pat knows these kids and how to help them unlock their brains – Alex loves to read now and loves math as well.”
ABLE TO ENJOY READING
“Previously it was such a chore for my daughter to try to read the words on the page. She was struggling in school and could not focus on her school work. After working in this program, she received special recognition from her teacher and school for making tremendous improvement during the year. She is now able to enjoy reading a book. The exercises were fun to do together, and my skills improved too! This program was the answer we needed to help her.”
ON ALL LEVELS, HER SCORES MORE THAN DOUBLED!
“When our daughter started with BrainLinking, she was reading on a 1st grade level. After five months, she is now reading on a 4th grade level. We are so impressed with this program!
We were referred to Pat by a friend. We hadn’t tried anything else other than the reading groups offered through the elementary school and the constant struggle at home. We were a bit leery to try the BrainLinking program just because the concepts were so unfamiliar and didn’t seem to have much to do with picking up a book. We have learned a lot about why our daughter was struggling with reading. BrainLinking fixed the problems!
Before BrainLinking, our daughter would not pick up a chapter book, because it was way too overwhelming for her. She is no longer afraid to open a chapter book and enjoys reading it. She was also easily distracted at school. In years past, staying on task was always one of the goals on her progress reports. This area is no longer a concern for our daughter. Recently, at parent teacher conference, the teacher gave us a report as to her testing before and after BrainLinking. On all levels, her scores have more than doubled!
In that same parent teacher conference, my daughter asked her teacher if she could move up to the next level of reading group! Her teacher was so impressed and gave her a high five. For parents to watch their child improve is one thing, but to see her confidence soar is quite another!
This has been a wonderful experience for our family. It is definitely team work if you want it to be a success. Pat is so easy to work with and lets you sit in and be 100% involved. My husband was a kid who also struggled with reading, and he recently said, ‘If only I could have known about this program when I was younger.’ BrainLinking is definitely worth the investment, time, work, and travel [125 miles round trip each week]!”
ABILITY TO CONCENTRATE & TO CONTROL HER “BOSSINESS”
“It’s truly amazing! After only a few sessions, my daughter’s ability to concentrate and to control her ‘bossiness’ has increased tenfold. Thank You ”
TOP READING GROUP
Our son did very well in the BrainLinking program. He has been moved to the top reading group in school, and his confidence has soared.
5th – 8th Graders
“Pat’s BrainLinking is a parent’s survival kit to raising a strong-willed, independent child! She not only taught me how my son learns but how I learn, so together we became a homework team rather than having an adversarial relationship! This was not tutoring or just reading help. It was a life-changing experience for our entire family!”
“I want to tell you about the improvements I’ve been seeing in Daniel. I’ve seen some good steps along the way, like getting his math set done in 30-40 min instead of 2 hours and actually finishing homework even if I’m not here to keep him on track, but this last week, I feel like a new boy has moved into our home! He is staying up late if he has to finish an assignment, he catches himself quickly when he starts to argue and does what I’ve asked, he even finished a whole math set in class (I think that is a first) instead of drawing in class and procrastinating until he gets home. He is quoting scriptures he has learned at school and said for the first time has made it past 2nd nephi and is reading in mosiah! Thank you could never cover how grateful i am for all you do and who you are.”
MATH & READING SCORES IMPROVED AND HOMEWORK TIME DECREASED!
“Math has been challenging for our daughter since 2nd grade. Over the past few years, she has attended several traditional tutoring centers and we eventually hired a private tutor to try to enhance her math and problem solving skills. Even with the tutoring, she continued to struggle. As she was approaching middle school, we once again researched our options with the hope of finding a program which would truly help her for the long term. We decided to give BrainLinking a try.
After meeting with Pat for our initial consultation, we were very excited about her approach. Pat’s teaching style and program are different from the standard cookie-cutter curriculum. Pat performs a thorough assessment of each child and develops a learning plan unique to their strengths and areas for improvement. Our daughter was a bit reluctant to try yet another program but as soon as she got started with Pat, she realized the learning would be fun.
The BrainLinking program required commitment and hard work (for us and our daughter), but in the end it was well worth the effort and expense. Our daughter is excelling in 6th grade! Not only have her Math and Reading scores improved tremendously, but her homework takes her far less than it has in the past! We used to spend hours each night trying to get her through her assignments and now she is mostly self-sufficient. What a wonderful success story all around!”
HOMEWORK EFFORTS GO BETTER
For our older son (age 11), we always knew he was a pretty strong reader but thought this program would be beneficial on many other areas. I gained tremendous insight into the way he learns.. I have used many of the BrainLinking tools to help homework efforts go better and to facilitate his learning style. His reading speed increased 3 grade levels, and he performed well above average on his DIBELS testing at the beginning of this year. Incredible! Especially now that he is in 5th grade and must read multiple chapters each night for school work, I feel that the strengthened reading skills will be a huge advantage in standardized testing and in overall classwork. For once I felt that our summer was productive. I highly recommend this program!
We just can’t thank you enough, Pat! We are so very pleased with the progress of both boys! You are a wonderful person and we believe our sons are very fortunate to have worked with you.
HE CAN READ NOW & HE FEELS SMART!
“I couldn’t be more thrilled with the progress Matthew made with Pat. We’ve tried a well-known tutoring service and private tutoring which helped him little to nothing. With Pat, Matthew improved years-worth in 7-8 months! Matthew can read now, and he feels smart! This is a program that works! In the BrainLinking program my son was always willing to do his reading assignments, eye exercises and focusing activities, because of the success he saw and felt.
Pat was able to connect with Matthew and get him excited about the progress he was making. BrainLinking helped Matthew open a world of possibilities! He enjoys reading now and can read for extended periods of time. We will be forever grateful to Pat and BrainLinking for the miracle she performed in our son’s life!”
READING WITH INCREASED CONFIDENCE & COMPREHENSION
increased brain processing activity
“My son’s confidence increased tremendously. His scores have reflected an increase in reading comprehension. Pat is amazing at keeping open the communication between parent and teacher. It was pivotal. I loved the activity portion of the program. It increased brain processing activity, but also gave us some playful bonding time.”
CONFIDENCE LEADS TO FIRST TIME ON HONOR ROLL (3.5 GPA)
“Thank you for that great experience in BrainLinking! In school I feel more successful and am ready to try anything.” This student came to the BrainLinking summer camp, because she was petrified to make the transition from elementary to middle school. She sent us this note, with a copy of her first semester report card – her very first ever Honor Roll standing, 3.5 GPA!
BEHAVIOR, WORK COMPLETION & MEMORY HAVE IMPROVED
“His behavior has improved dramatically. He works smarter. He is able to accomplish more in less time and remember what he’s learned. And it’s obvious he feels better in his own skin. ”
NOTHING LESS THAN A MIRACLE – NOW SHE LOVES TO READ!
“The BrainLinking program was nothing less than a miracle for my daughter! She is ten years old, and before she started this program, she was only at a second grade reading level. She hated reading, because her eyes hurt whenever she tried, and she had a very difficult time focusing on school work in general. Now she loves to read! She is up to a fifth grade reading level. Her eyes never bother her, and she is spelling, writing and even doing math better than ever before.
The improvement is truly amazing! I am so grateful that we found BrainLinking. The principles of teaching balance, generating the ability to focus and strengthening eye/hand coordination are sound. Every one of Pat’s activities – in the gym and on the computer – worked in perfect harmony toward the goal of enabling the brain to do what it was meant to do: LEARN!! AND SUCCEED!!”
CONFIDENCE IN HIS ABILITY TO LEARN
“My son’s learning process was lacking. I was not looking for tutorial aid; I wanted help addressing the learning process in his brain. At BrainLinking, my son’s confidence in his ability to learn increased immeasurably. At a parent-teacher conference, his history teacher stated, ‘We have a new boy, don’t we?’ Thank you, BrainLinking! How can you place a value on your child’s self confidence in his ability to learn?”
IMPROVED READING SCORES ARE RESULT OF BETTER COMPREHENSION & DESIRE TO READ
“I have seen my son’s confidence increase tremendously. His reading scores have reflected an increase in comprehension and desire to read. I have witnessed an increase in his daily vocabulary. Hearing about the right-brain, left-brain integration registered with me. I knew that my son was having this issue – he couldn’t get the two sides to work together.
9th – 12th GRADERS
GREAT COMPREHENSIVE READING PROGRAM OF VOCABULARY, COMPREHENSION & SKILLS
“My son’s reading level went up four grades, and he is reading faster with better comprehension. His confidence has also increased. I liked how the reading program integrated vocabulary and comprehension. Showing skills weaknesses was helpful. It is a great comprehensive program.
There is a nice cross-over of computer exercises and activity work. This program links the right and left hemispheres in the brain. I liked the mind busters and map games, and I enjoyed doing the physical activities and extra skills sheets with my son. He liked doing the computer work on his own.”
READING OR MATH HELP
“If you are worried and need help with your child’s reading or math, call Pat at BrainLinking!”
ATTITUDE TOWARDS SCHOOL WORK & ABILITIES HAS DEFINITELY IMPROVED
“My son’s attitude towards doing schoolwork has definitely improved, and he has much more confidence in his abilities. I love how you integrate the physical activities with the intellectual activities – and you make it so fun! At first, getting my son to do anything was a very frustrating thing – we usually ended up fighting. But then something “clicked,” and he has gotten much better about doing the activities – and we have actually had some fun times together. The physical activities are awesome!”
“His confidence has improved greatly – even in social interactions.”
FINDING SUCCESS, BOTH ACADEMICALLY AND PERSONALLY
“My teenager rarely turned in assignments. He consistently failed his tests. He was disruptive in class. We fought all the time. He was angry with himself, angry at me, angry at his teachers.”
After only a few weeks at BrainLinking, she reported, “He was calmer, kinder, and had lost his argumentativeness.” By the end of the school year she concluded, “He has come so far in the last year, he is hardly the same person. He is finding success, both academically and personally, Thank you so much!”
BRAIN INTEGRATION & PARENT INVOLVEMENT ARE KEY
“I appreciated the way you hold students accountable. Loved the connection between cross-patterning activities and training the brain to read. Parent involvement is key.”
COLLEGE STUDENTS AND ADULTS
I LEARNED HOW TO EFFECTIVELY STUDY & ACE TESTS
“My grandma . . . suggested I give it a try. I was hesitant at first but extremely grateful in the end. BrainLinking has given me the confidence and ability to take more advanced college classes knowing I can read the material, study effectively and perform at the level I wanted to achieve but was struggling to reach.
How BrainLinking helped me: Individual time and attention was a key factor in my success. I was given suggestions on places and times to study effectively. I was held responsible for my work and progress, but was continually encouraged to do better and improve. Even in classes where other students complained about the difficult subject matter, I understood it and confidently aced the tests.
I thoroughly enjoyed the savvy computerized reading program. It is clear, straightforward and time efficient. The physical balance board activities and computer work included a good combination of active hands-on and cognitive exercises.
My parents were a great support through the whole program, helping with the physical balance board activities. With Pat and my parents, I truly had a team behind me encouraging, guiding and rejoicing in my step-by-step successes. I’m not afraid of hard classes now, because I know I can learn anything!”
16 WEEKS TO DOUBLE READING RATE & IMPROVE COMPREHENSION
“…In only 16 weeks I have doubled my reading words per minute! When I read now, I am able to cover twice the material and that has improved my comprehension. Since my reading is easier, I am even reading a book that one of my kids just read so I can see what she is interested in. I have gained more confidence when readinnt’ link=” linktext=”]
“…In only 16 weeks I have doubled my reading words per minute! When I read now, I am able to cover twice the material and that has improved my comprehension. Since my reading is easier, I am even reading a book that one of my kids just read so I can see what she is interested in. I have gained more confidence when reading out loud in a public setting, and am also looking into taking some college classes to improve my skills and open up new job opportunities.
My experience with BrainLinking has been thoroughly rewarding. Now that my class has ended I still have some activities that I can work on at home to continue to improve my reading. I will forever be grateful for the reading improvements and study skills I have made with BrainLinking and for the positive encouragement and insightful help Pat Rosenbury gave me all along the way. Thank you, Pat.”
MARKED IMPROVEMENT IN ABILITY TO FOCUS AND CONCENTRATE
“Combining physical activity with the program and giving personal attention made the course effective. Working with other students allows for confidence building . . . even people of my age and older can get help when needed. I was a kid who always showed promise, but lacked initiative and was labeled ‘daydreamer’ and ‘lazy.’ Through BrainLinking, I have showed marked improvement in my ability to focus and concentrate, and recommend this course for anyone needing help with learning more effectively.”
MORE STIMULATED AND INVIGORATED
“My husband thought he was destined to the consequences of aging. But what a difference! He says his brain feels more stimulated and invigorated than it has in years. And he says it’s fun!”
