Our team includes brain and neuroplasticity (brain change) experts. We work with each of our participants to better understand their learning profiles and to develop plans that work to meet their learning needs. Our team adopts
components of the BrainExTM Program in order to increase function in specific areas of the brain that may be damaged or underperforming.

Participants work on four different 35-minute BrainExTM Program brain exercises and have one 35-minute physical activity block. They also participate in a 10-15 minute guided meditation period.
These cognitive and physical blocks are tailored to each individual based on his or her abilities.

Full Time participants have a choice of enrolling in morning or afternoon sessions.

Part Time

In addition to our full time program, WCSBH also offers a part time program. Like the full time program, the part time program is custom tailored to each individual’s health goals after a full cognitive assessment. In addition to the cognitive remediation exercises based on the BrainExTM Program, the part time
program also offers aerobic exercise, mindfulness meditation, and clinical counselling, but is condensed to run five hours per week for nine months on Tuesdays and Thursdays (12:45pm to 3:45pm).
