Elite In Center

The Brain Sprints Elite system begins with an in-person evaluation at our Brain Sprints Center. The evaluation is designed to pinpoint challenges and provide the highest level of individualized NeuroDevelopmental brain building activities. These Neurodevelopmental activities, implemented by one of our on-site Brain Coaches, greatly reduce or often eliminate the root causes of brain inefficiencies. The Elite system addresses issues with gross motor, fine motor, speech, language, auditory and visual function as well as sensory integration, behavioral and academic concerns.

Who should participate in an Elite System?

NeuroDevelopment (ND) is effective for everyone from birth to 99 years of age. The Elite System is an intensive in-center option for parents that want the professional implementation of program activities, including academic instruction.  This system has proven successful for individuals with these challenges

  • Children with undetermined or unlabeled learning struggles
  •  Children who have been placed in foster care, adopted or traumatized
  • Children who have been labeled:
  • Accelerated or Gifted
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Autism
  • Bipolar
  • Developmentally Delayed
  • Down Syndrome
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
  • Learning Disabled
  • OCD
  • PDD-NOS
  • Sensory Processing Disorder
  • Typically Developing
  • And more…

There is a great need across the DFW metroplex for NeuroDevelopmental brain training programs to help families address these challenges.  Brain Sprints meets that need at our McKinney Center with our Elite, All Stars or Champions systems accomplished by our trained Brain Coaches.

How does it work?

The Elite system is a series of in-person evaluations with a Brain Sprints’ professional that includes a parent consultation to review the extensive client history and determine the family’s goals. The individualized, NeuroDevelopmental program created from the evaluation is implemented by trained Brain Coaches. This system implements unique activities for each four-month cycle that build and strengthen neurological connections.

Each in-person evaluation includes:

  • Academic testing to track progress
  • Review of all documentation by a NeuroDevelopmentalist
  • Customized INP (Individual NeuroDevelopmental Program)
  • Implementation of activities at the center
  • Parent updates
  • Reading and math instruction and materials
  • Also available – content for all academic areas when requested

The first year consists of three 4-month cycles beginning with an in-person evaluation and continuing with daily instruction at the Brain Sprints Center.

Time Commitment:

  • 3 hours a day
  • 5 days each week

Supplies for specific activities are included for the customized intervention. If parents desire to do some of the activities at home, supplies can be purchased separately.

 Basis for success

Brain Sprints’ Coaches believe that all future abilities are determined by what is presented to the individual’s brain, not what a label attempts to dictate. The focus of the Elite system is to further brain pathway development (expandable page?) by addressing the root causes of symptoms associated with labels or learning struggles. The results – accelerated functional and academic abilities!

 All Elite Programs address brain function in 6 areas:

  • gross motor
  • fine motor
  • speech/language
  • auditory
  • visual
  • tactility

Each area of function is addressed on 9 levels of brain development.

 Elite programs can also address concerns with behavioral, metabolic and academic challenges.

How to get started:

  1. History Form: Complete and submit the History Form, digital photo and payment information. 
  2. Schedule your in-person evaluation: After submitting your history form you will select your evaluation time from the schedule.
  3. Schedule your time slot for Program implementation: Choose from available coaching hours. Refer to the Brain Sprints’ calendar for all scheduled days for service at the center. Coaching takes place 46 weeks of the year with designated weeks for vacation and breaks.
  4. Continued Elite service: The Elite system provides in-person evaluations every 4 months. Evaluations for the next cycle are typically scheduled 4 months in advance.
