SMART brain training software from RaiseYourIQ is based on established principles of learning that have been proven to underlie intellectual development across a wide range of areas (reading, problem solving, reasoning, and so on). The skills that have been identified as underlying most intellectual abilities, are called “relational skills” and our founders (Doctor Bryan Roche and Doctor Sarah Cassidy) have played a key role identifying how “relational skills training” impacts a persons intellectual ability. We then devised the SMART brain training course to teach people these crucial learning skills.
Dozens of published studies from several independent laboratories have honed in on the development of relational skills as they key to intellectual development. RaiseYourIQ have also published two experiments which show that IQ can be increased by a large amount using our method – something no other brain training company has done.
Decades of published research has now shown that it is our relational skills that help us to understand the relationships between things, such as words and objects in the world around us. For example, any two things can be the same as each other, different, or opposite to each other. One may be more than the other, or less, and so on. Our research and the research of other laboratories has shown that almost all intellectual skills rely in turn on the fluency of these basic relational skills and that when you enhance relational skills, significant IQ increases follow.
SMART teaches some basic relational skills to a very high level of fluency, so that mathematical, logical and verbal concepts make more sense and solutions to problems are arrived at more easily.
