Brain training, while a very beneficial practice for both children and adults, can be difficult to understand. We have collected some of the best resources for kids on the Internet to help them understand brains and brain training.

Our team of neuropsychologists, school psychologists, and psychology students at South County Child and Family Consultants are committed to searching the Internet and beyond to find reputable, informative, and practical tools to help parents, children, and teens learn more about brain training. We look for the best information online to help kids diagnosed with ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Executive Functioning Difficulties, struggles with Social Emotional Learning (SEL) skills, Autism, Depression, and Anxiety and provide you with information about how neuropsychological evaluations help in targeting concerns regarding brain training. Come back regularly, as the links are updated frequently.
