Brain Launch Your Child To Success

Programs Overview

 

BRAIN LAUNCH currently offers three developmental programs. The programs strengthen what we call the foundational processing systems of the brain; the brain systems that form the foundation for physical coordination and self-regulation, attention and concentration, listening and reading comprehension, learning and everyday life performance.

Explanations of the processing systems that form Dr. Helms’ “Foundational Processing System” can be found on our website by selecting this link.

Dr. Helms’ main goal in creating the new LAUNCH programs was to make them as effective as a clinical program, at a cost that most everyone could afford. Dr. Helms has accomplished this goal. The delivery system he has designed is so user-friendly that most any high school student or adult can administer the programs while maintaining optimal effectiveness.

If you as a busy parent feel you don’t have the time to administer a program to your child, hire a high school student or friend to administer the program.

 Tips for Finding a Coach

  • Mention your interest in hiring a coach to family members, friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
  • Contact the family resource center at your child’s school or the local high school.
  • Most high schools require students to do so many hours of volunteer community service to graduate. Contact the director of community service at your local high school and get coaching hours approved for the Brain Launch Programs. The student would have to do it for FREE to get credit for community service hours. You can have the director contact us if you need help getting hours approved.

For a limited time our Pre-LAUNCH Program is FREE! Try it now!

Our LAUNCH Program 1  has a current limited time introductory price of only $39.

Our more comprehensive LAUNCH Program 2 has a current limited time introductory price of only $69.

The LAUNCH programs administered in a clinical setting would cost thousands of dollars.

Our programs are based on proven developmental concepts. Instructions guide you through the programs in a scripted step-by-step manner, which make them easy to administer. Instructions are received through our website, one section at a time. Once the child passes all of the exercises in a section, the next section becomes available. There are 6 sections (104 Exercises) in the Pre-LAUNCH Program, 9 sections (169 Exercises) in the LAUNCH Program 1 and 16 sections (304 Exercises) in the LAUNCH Program 2.

We recommend doing a minimum of 30-minute exercise sessions, 3 or 4 times per week until the program is completed. Most children enjoy doing the exercises and some will want to do longer sessions. But, try not to exceed 60 minutes. The time length required to complete a program will also depend upon the child’s developmental level and cooperation, and the coach’s efficiency in delivering the program.

What makes the Brain Launch programs unique? 

Our programs are the only developmental programs that accomplish ALL of the following:

    • Effective in improving a child’s learning ability
    • Exercises develop the Foundational Processing Systems in a face-to-face, one-on-one manner, like in a clinical setting
    • Only programs that develop the Foundational Processing Systems from the ground up (lower level basic processing systems to higher level more complex processing systems)
    • User Friendly (scripted in a step-by-step manner)
    • Affordable

The BRAIN LAUNCH Processing Programs take a major commitment from parents and the student, but it may be the most important commitment and gift you ever give your child. A gift that will help assure your child gets off to their best start in school and will benefit them the rest of their life.

The programs are not just for children who are struggling in school. Strengthening the foundational processing systems will improve a child’s performance in all areas of life, even if they are advanced for their age.

 

Pre-LAUNCH Program

All Five and Six year olds should start with the FREE Pre-LAUNCH Program

The Pre-LAUNCH Program is designed to strengthen the lower foundational processing systems. It will prepare 5 and 6 year olds to tackle the more difficult and comprehensive LAUNCH Program 1. The Free program will also let parents experience delivering the program before purchasing the more comprehensive programs.

 Following is a list of the lower level foundational processing systems that are strengthened in the Pre-LAUNCH Program:

 Sensory Motor Systems:
Gross Motor Development
Ocular Motor Development
Fine Motor Development
Physical Self-Regulation Development

Phase 2
Spatial Awareness Systems:
Laterality Development
Spatial Recall Development 

All exercises strengthen Attention, Concentration and Listening Comprehension

LAUNCH Program 1

Most Seven and Eight year olds should start with LAUNCH Program 1.
Five and Six year olds who have completed the PRE-LAUNCH Program will be ready to begin LAUNCH Program 1.

LAUNCH Program 1 is designed to strengthen the lower and mid-level foundational processing systems. This program will make sure a young child has a solid foundational base before attempting to tackle the more advanced and comprehensive LAUNCH Program 2.

Following is a list of the lower level foundational information processing systems that are strengthened in the LAUNCH Program 1:

Phase 1
Sensory Motor Systems:
Gross Motor Development
Ocular Motor Development
Fine Motor Development

Physical Self-Regulation Development

Phase 2
Spatial Awareness Systems:
Laterality Development
Directionality Development
Spatial Recall Development

Phase 3
Perceptual Processing Systems:
Visual Processing Development
Auditory Processing Development

All exercises strengthen Attention, Concentration and Listening Comprehension


LAUNCH Program 2

Most Nine, Ten and Eleven year olds should start with LAUNCH Program 2.
Seven and Eight year olds who have completed the LAUNCH Program 1 will be ready to begin LAUNCH Program 2.

Following is a list of the “Foundational Processing Systems” that are strengthened in LAUNCH Program 2:

Phase 1
Sensory Motor Systems:
Gross Motor Development
Ocular Motor Development
Fine Motor Development
Physical Self-Regulation Development

Phase 2
Spatial Awareness Systems:
Laterality Development
Directionality Development
Spatial Recall Development

Phase 3
Perceptual Processing Systems:
Visual Processing Development
Auditory Processing Development
Visual-Auditory Integration Development

Phase 4
Higher Order Processing Systems:
Working Memory Development
Divided Attention Development
Visualization Development

Phase 5
Selective Attention Systems:
Visual Selective Attention Development
Auditory Selective Attention Development
Sustained Attention Development

All exercises strengthen Attention, Concentration and Listening Comprehension

 

Overview of Future Programs


LAUNCH ADVANCED Program

Most students twelve and up should start with the LAUNCH ADVANCED Program.
Students who have completed Launch Program 2 will be ready to begin the LAUNCH ADVANCED Program.

We expect the LAUNCH Advanced Program to be available in December of 2018.

The LAUNCH ADVANCED Program develops the processing and thinking systems required for the type of personal growth needed to develop a higher level of Optimal Intellect.    

Following is a list of the Higher Order Processing & Thinking Systems that are strengthened in the LAUNCH ADVANCED Program.

Phase 1
Higher Order Processing Systems:
Working Memory Development
Divided Attention Development
Visualization Development

Explanations of the life skills that form Dr. Helms’ “Construct of Optimal Intellect” can be found on our website by selecting this link.

Note: No one only uses just their right or left brain for a task, but I believe certain tasks are headquartered in the right or left brain, and some tasks require the right and left brain to work in a more integrated synergistic manner.

Phase 2
Left Brain Thinking Systems:
Sequential Thinking Development
Spatial Thinking Development

Phase 3
Right Brain Thinking Systems:
Spatial Thinking Development
Divergent Thinking Development

Phase 4
Integrated Brain Thinking Systems:
Conceptual Thinking Development
Critical Thinking Development
Strategic Thinking Development

All exercises strengthen Attention, Concentration and Listening Comprehension
