Working under the guidance of Eminent Prof. (Sir) Richard Faull, this programme will be delivered nationwide, free to all NZ 800,000 school children. This programme is currently partnering with circa 40+ schools, 1,000+ students in research to develop and execute this global first and ground-breaking programme.
This Centre for Brain Research’s programme increases cognitive functions of all (normative, learning impaired and gifted) children, to be available to all schools nationwide free-of-charge. This is a direct Gaze response ‘we can do it ourselves’ to offer evidence-based support that is both affordable and sustainable for our most vulnerable children.
