Train the Brain. Accelerate Learning. Improve

A classic example of a deficit in visual perception is the child who confuses letters such as b, d, p and q. Many adults find their reading speed to be inadequate as a result of underlying perceptual deficits.
Memory is probably the most important of all cognitive functions. Short-term memory, or working memory, lasts from a few seconds to a minute or so. When you are trying to recall a telephone number that was heard a few seconds earlier, the name of a person who has just been introduced, or the substance of the remarks just made by a teacher in class, you are calling on short-term memory, or working memory.
A poor short-term memory may lead to difficulties in processing, understanding and organization.
Long-term memory is the ability to store information and later retrieve it, and lasts from a minute or so to weeks or even years. From long-term memory you can recall general information about the world that you learned on previous occasions, memory for specific past experiences, specific rules previously learned, and the like.
Visual memory is a person's ability to remember what he has seen, while auditory memory is a person's ability to remember what he has heard. While visual memory deficiencies are inclined to affect reading and spelling, students with auditory memory deficiencies will often experience difficulty developing a good understanding of words, remembering terms and information that have been presented orally, for example, in history or science classes.
Logical thinking is a learned process in which one uses reasoning consistently to arrive at a conclusion.
Benefits of Compublox
Improving the ability to concentrate allows a person to avoid the problems, embarrassment, and difficulties that occur when the mind wanders. Better concentration makes studying easier and speeds up comprehension. It enables one to take advantage of the social and business opportunities that arise when individuals are fully attuned to the world around them. It helps one to focus on one's goals and achieve them more easily.
By improving accuracy and speed of perception, one is able to absorb and process information accurately and quickly. Reading speed will also improve and reading problems can be overcome.
Short-term memory can be compared to the control tower of a major airport, responsible for scheduling and coordinating all incoming and outgoing flights. By improving one's short-term memory, one is better able to process, understand and organize incoming information.
By improving long-term memory schoolchildren and students are able to store and retrieve information more effectively.
Various researchers have stated that as much as eighty percent of all learning takes place through the eye. Needless to say, improving visual memory will have a tremendous effect on a person's learning ability. The same is true of improving auditory memory.
The ability to think logically allows a person to reject quick and easy answers, such as "I don't know," or "this is too difficult," by empowering him to delve deeper into his thinking processes and understand better the methods used to arrive at a solution. It has been shown that training in logical thinking processes makes a person brighter.
In the later years of life, lack of concentration, the inability to focus, and memory loss are common problems that accompany us. Compublox helps to recapture the ability to process, retain and analyze information.
What Users Say
Compublox is an excellent computer program through which various skills, that are indispensable for the learning process, can be practiced and mastered. I use the program for a young boy whom I homeschool and the improvement in his concentration, as well as his short and long-term memory is astounding! He thoroughly enjoys the program and can scarcely wait to start his daily practice session. He also finds it very interesting and challenging because the level of difficult is continually adjusted in accordance with his progress. I would like to recommend Compublox to any learner. Both strong and weak learners benefit equally because the exercise material is presented in a differentiated way. — Louis Swart, teacher.
Compublox improved my son's attention, memory, and logic skills. I also noticed a leap in his ability to read larger words, which I attributed to the Flashing exercise. However, all the exercises in the program are useful for anyone who wants to improve their brainpower. — Cindy, parent.
My observation of old people over a period of many years has convinced me of the importance of keeping one's mind active and fit. For that reason I do mental exercises every day. Compublox is a very important part of my exercise program. I have no doubt that Compublox will help me to remain clear-headed and retain a reliable and good memory to a ripe old age. — J.S., 64 years.
Jacques (11) is in Grade 5/6 at Anchor Christian Academy. Thanks to Compublox, Jacques' progress is simply phenomenal, attaining an average of 95.47%, despite the standard at Anchor being extremely high. We are so convinced of Compublox helping to improve learning that our younger son Theo (7) is also utilizing the program with excellent results. — Theuns Erasmus, parent.
