Our Brain Bridging program co-exists with our academic program. Exercises work to help the brain hemispheres communicate better while meeting students academically exactly where they are and helping them fill in the gaps. Does this produce miracles?
We do produce achievements, miracles are in the eyes of the beholder: saying a word that expresses need rather than constant echolalia is a miracle, being able to problem solve emotional obstacles is a miracle, learning to listen to other people’s perspectives is a miracle.
Academically, however, we have test scores. We tested the first and last weeks of Fall Session and have seen some advances.

One student has improved 3 grade-levels in writing and 1 grade-level in math.
One student has improved 1 grade-level in writing and 1 grade-level in math.
