We offer them a predictive analyses of people’s learning potential and solutions to optimize learning performance of their students. It ensures their learning practices are aligned with neuroscience research improving the quality of teaching and obtaining even better results.

OVERVIEW OF SERVICES
Neuro-Link serves educational organizations as follows:
1. Assessments for teachers – The LRP™ Advanced+ brain profile assessment is done on teachers/lecturers to understand their own neurodesign and how it will influence the way they teach.

2. Teacher training – based on neuroscience of learning research, the following    themes are covered:

  • learning implications of the brain * impact of people’s neurological design on learning
  • brain ergonomics (humanizing) the classroom
  • brain fitness activities to improve transfer of learning
  • designing educational material according to the learning preferences of the brain
  • aligning subject and career choices with neurodesign. learning strategies for 21st century learners
  • emotional intelligence for the classroom

3. Assessments of students – the LRP™ Toolbox brain profile assessment is done on students to understand how uniquely the student prefers to learn and how their learning performance can be improved.

4. Student debriefing – A group debriefing is held with parents of students to help them understand how the student prefers to learn, how they can assist the student learn better and easier and how to align subject and career choices with the students’ neurodesign.

5. Student training – Students do a study skills course to align their learning strategies with their unique brain profile

APPLICATION VALUE OF OUR BRAIN PROFILES TO PROFESSIONALS IN EDUCATION

You can’t improve what you can’t measure.

Neuro-Link has developed the Learning Receptiveness Profile™ Toolbox for:                          

  • Teacher/lecturer training – educating facilitators of learning to understand how these 13 learning receptiveness factors will influence their style of learning transfer as well as that of their learners and aligning their learning transfer to be inclusive of all learning preferences;
  • Subject and career choices – parents, children, students, educational psychologists, teachers, remedial teachers and career psychologists will be able to make more informed subject and career choices with a predictive analyses, aligning their neurological design with the choices they make;
  • Learning performance optimization – learners will accelerate their learning and obtain better results when identifying their unique learning preferences and aligning their preferences with obtaining appropriate learning strategies and skills.
RECOMMENDATIONS

Getting to know your staff’s unique neurological wiring is one of the most crucial aspects of effective human resource management. As a School Principal it was one of the most important human development sessions our staff has done for years.

Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of teachers as well as where their passions lie, made me understand how every member functions best. Dr Vermeulen’s Neuro-Link brain profiles made my job so much easier.
