Listen to short audios with lots of information.
Each audio addresses an Onsite Family Program theme.
Upcoming Pons Session: July 5th-September 28th
*There's ordinarily a two-week course preparation time just for parents, where they spend a little more than one hour (total) during each of those weeks to review materials. However, for this upcoming session, parents will have those precourse materials for three instead of two weeks since all Brain Highways will be on vacation from July 20-July 26. That also means the kids join the course on July 28.
How do we help participants in the onsite Family Program?
We teach parents and their kids how to organize their brain.
We do this in a 11-week pons course and a separate 9-week midbrain course.
We give families weekly multimedia materials.
That’s how we present comprehensive information about the brain, as well as teach families how to create a well-organized one. The videos, audios, and articles appearing throughout this site give a good sense of the kind of content and humor we include in our pons and midbrain multimedia materials.
We offer classes at the Brain Highways Center.
In addition to the multimedia materials, onsite families also interact with other parents and kids, participate in contests and games, and use cool brain toys and apparatus in weekly classes.
We personalize the program in many ways.
We assess each parent’s and child’s lower brain development—both as a baseline and as they progress. We also give feedback on assignments and answer specific questions that are not answered in the curriculum materials.
We teach parents how to eliminate out-of-bounds behaviors and distorted fears.
We assume that most parents have already tried traditional approaches and discovered they weren’t effective—which is often the case when kids have retained primitive reflexes and underdeveloped lower centers of the brain.
We honor parents who organize their own brain.
We give parents who complete the minimum brain organization work during the pons and midbrain courses free access to 25 audio clips from the adult program (these are not part of the family program). Such audios reflect specific adult themes, such as how incomplete lower brain development may affect the workplace, relationships, insomnia, addictions, driving, depression, chronic physical problems, and more. When combining these audios with all the information parents already received in the family program, such parents will have then also “completed” the adult program—but without ever officially enrolling in that course or paying an extra dime.
We offer hope.
Probably the best part of learning about the brain is . . . it ignites hope—and the brain needs to be hopeful in order to move forward.
