Our team includes brain and neuroplasticity (brain change) specialists. 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 blocks of 50-minute BrainExTM Program brain exercises and have one 45-minute physical activity block. They also participate in 20-minute meditation periods and bi-monthly clinical counselling. These cognitive and physical blocks are tailored to each individual based on his or her abilities.

Part-Time

In addition to our half-day program, WCSBH also offers a part-time program. Like the half-day 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, meditation, and clinical counselling, but is condensed to run six hours per week for three to six months depending on the need of the client.

Part-time program: Monday and Wednesday OR Tuesdays and Thursdays (1:00pm to 4:00pm).
