    Comprehensive Cognitive Skills Assessment

    The first thing we do when you come to The Brain Workshop for help is have you, your child or your employee do a comprehensive Cognitive Skills Assessment.

    The Gibson Test takes less than an hour to complete, and includes subtests in working and long-term memory, processing speed, logic and reasoning, visual and auditory processing, reading skills, and attention.

    The Gibson Test is based on Gibson’s Learning Model
    which is grounded in the Cattell-Horn-Carrol (CHC) theory of intelligence. The CHC Theory is a model of intelligence that describes thinking as a combined set of multiple cognitive abilities including skills such as logic and reasoning, long-term and short-term memory, visual and auditory processing, and processing speed.

    The Gibson Test meets the highest scientific standards, and has been administered more than 92,000 times since 1999 by professions including psychologists, educators, neurologists, audiologists, speech & language professionals, and brain training specialists around the world. It has been validated and normed twice by experts in the fields of learning and cognition, and has strong psychometric properties that meet or exceed the standards for educational tests.

    The Gibson Test is available in more than 20 languages, including English, Arabic, French, Hindi, Cantonese, Indonesian, Mandarin, Hungarian, Malay, Russian, Vietnamese, Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish, Filipino, Lithuanian, Polish, and Taiwanese Hokkien.

    We focus our testing and analysis on specific areas that are strongly related to learning and performance whether at school, university, on the job, or in other areas of life. These skills include:

    • Memory Skills
      The ability to retrieve and retain information
    • Attention
      The ability to attend to and stay on task
    • Processing Speed
      The ability to handle information with ease and speed
    • Logic and Reasoning
      The ability to apply skills related to planning, thinking and reasoning
    • Auditory Processing
      The ability to blend, segment, and analyze sounds
    • Visual Processing
      The ability to create and manipulate pictures in your mind

    The report you will receive following the completion of the test will give you a detailed look at individual cognitive strengths and weaknesses in each of these areas. It also measures IQ.

    Cognitive scores are represented in three forms:

    Age Equivalent Scores

    These can be used up to the age of about 16 and indicate how one individual’s scores compare with the average scores of other age groups.

    Standard Scores

    Which indicate how far above or below average an individual score falls,

    Percentile Scores

    Indicate where an individual would rank in a group of 100 clients. Percentile scores, the scores we focus on the most, show how someone ranks in performance when compared to 100 of their peers. If someone ranked in the 38th percentile before The Brain Workshop brain training, and in the 59th percentile six months later, he or she has “moved up in line” by 21 places. In other words, they have improved by 21 percentile points. When gains are measured in percentiles, through a post training Cognitive skills assessment you can see what has been accomplished, get a clear picture of how that client is performing in relation to their peers, and make informed decisions about what interventions may still be needed.

    Whether you are the parent of a struggling student, a parent or adult looking for a baseline test of current skills levels, an adult seeking help for yourself, a clinician seeking to help a client or patient, or an educator or school looking for answers for one or more students, The Gibson Test will give you invaluable information about brain performance as you determine the next best step for yourself or your child, student, or client.

    What Difference Can Cognitive Testing Make for You or Your Child?

    Many families and individuals describe experiencing an “Aha!” moment when they see the results of their test. In fact, we often hear comments like “Now everything makes sense!” as families see the performance of weak skills responsible for some of their most frustrating daily struggles. The reason to complete a cognitive test to identify weak skills is simple: Once identified, weak skills can be strengthened through brain training. Strengthening these skills typically addresses the root cause of the problem, and removes frustrating obstacles to learning.

    Identifying weak skills can:

    • Give professionals and families the answers they need to make informed decisions regarding the best intervention for a child or adult
    • Save time and money that might have been spent pursuing interventions that don’t address the root cause of the problem
