The adolescent's program focuses on the process of learning, moving adolescents from passive recipients of information to active generators of ideas. The exercises teach new ways of processing information which can then be applied in school as well as every aspect of their lives.

Students gain better problem solving abilities and alternative strategies for decision making, and they learn logical thinking and organizational skills. These skills all lead to better study habits, test-taking abilities, and improved grades. The program helps provide insight and competence in difficult school subjects and helps students identify their analytical strengths and weaknesses. In addition, the successes they achieve in this program increases their self-esteem and confidence.


Individuals in this program work on basic exercises involving:

  • Comparisons/Contrasts

  • Analogies

  • Analytical perception (part/whole relationships)

  • Progressions

  • Functions
