Auditory processing, reading and memory programs for adults

It’s never too late to change your brain.

The most amazing and inspiring discovery by neuroscientists in the last three decades is that it is never too late to change your brain – adults can benefit from auditory processing, reading and memory programs just as much as children – as long as the programs are well designed and administered in the right way.

Does it work?
