Combining neuroscience with well-researched training programs to provide a lifetime of results

We use neuroscience and well-researched brain training programs to address the core of learning challenges children and adults face to provide a lifetime of results. Rather than focusing on the symptoms, we strengthen the areas that support learning so that everyone can achieve their maximum potential and beyond.

The Lyon Learning Process:

  • Assessment

    Each child/adult performs a comprehensive cognitive assessment so that our “brain trainers” can identify their specific learning difficulties.

  • Design

    We design an individualized program of “mental workouts” that build on itselves over time, focusing on the child or adult’s underlying processing skills.

  • Implementation

    We work closely with our students to engage in their specific program and ensure that the strategies are applicable and effective.

Brain Science

Higher level success in academics is dependent upon strengthening the attention-core learning skills and brain  processing skills.  When this is done, we are able to marshal the attributes necessary to  build the executive functioning skills that support reading, writing,  math and learning.

A Scientific Approach to Learning

Our programs enhance and focus attention on the underlying brain functions people have with attention, memory and other cognitive skills, which results in increased performance in math, reading, writing, and other executive skills by an average of 2.5 to 3 years (after approximately 300 hours of brain training).

Experience of the Team

Our “brain trainers” are, energetic, motivated, enthusiastic, and dedicated experts who are continually upgrading their skills to improve our services. We use research-based, clinically proven programs and techniques to develop a successful system that our clients can use in every aspect of their lives.

Making learning fun

Our clients love and look forward to their one-on-one sessions with their “brain trainers!” They love the rapport that is developed and are thrilled by the success they experience as they grow in learning, especially as they work on the areas that are challenging. The exercises we employ are fun “mental workouts” that kids look forward to engaging in.

Customized Learning Plan

Our services are unlike any other in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each program is designed specifically for the client based on their assessment results. We draw on a variety of science-based assessments to identify the strengths and weaknesses of our students learning abilities and design custom plans to make the needed changes in the quickest and most efficient way possible. The training exercises we employ are established learning programs, founded in cognitive research with well-established results.

  • “Professionally, I'm now able to recall names the first time I hear them, as well as use interesting facts more regularly during meetings, networking or new business conversations. This brain coaching has me impressing people and better positioning myself as more of an expert.”
