Parents and educators are reading reports regarding brain fitness/training research and programs designed to improve children's "weak cognitive skills", working memory, academic skills, and even increase I.Q.  How can parents and schools evaluate the claims made by the vendors of these programs?  This website will examine current research findings regarding brain training and working memory programs.  Parents and educators will learn the questions to ask and information needed to evaluate the merits of these programs as well as treatments not yet available.
