What is SMART Brain Training
RaiseYourIQ offers a series of educational tools Programs designed to assist students with regular learning and developmental challenges. Our tools can be used by schools who wish to enhance the cognitive ability of children aged approximately 9+ years. Tools include our Classic and scientifically validated SMART training, bonus fun games for SMART training on the move on mobile or other devices, and our new SMART FOR DYSLEXIA training programme based on the the proven SMART methodology.
We are involved with several research initiatives on learning and childhood development in schools and clinics across the world, much of it led by University faculty.
SMART™ (Strengthening Mental Abilities with Relational Training) is a revolutionary cognitive enhancement system developed by our own scientific researchers and company co-founders, Dr. Bryan Roche and Dr. Sarah Cassidy. The founders of RaiseYourIQ are established University-based researchers in the behavioral and cognitive sciences and have had their scientific work on learning and cognition published across a wide range of reputable scientific journals.
SMART is the only system of “brain training”, that has been proven to enhance general intelligence and its components, as well as reading ability, numerical ability and educational aptitude, across several independent peer-reviewed scientific studies from different laboratories, using several different assessment methods. See our Science section for more information.
SMART™ also enhances working memory and so can help with attentional issues and other learning disabilities. A strong working memory is essential as a building block for the acquisition of important skills, such as reading comprehension, problem solving and cognitive flexibility.
Sign Up Your School for Free
Teachers and schools only, school emails preferred. All sign-ups must be verified by our staff before training can begin. We will activate your account usually within 24 hours but may need to contact the account holder in advance.
Schools can chose from two default payment options - 120 credits or 150 credits. Each credit is enough for one user for one full month to access all the training games available to school users. Most children require around 4 months of access to SMART training to get the full benefits (i.e., 4 credits). Thus,120 credits are typically enough for a class of 30 children.

RaiseYourIQ have a dedicated intellectual skills and brain training solution designed for schools and education environments. The SMART system allows teachers to asses and train the school students' cognitive abilities. SMART training was developed across two decades by education leaders and published psychologists specifically to establish the basic skills required for effective learning in the areas of reading, vocabulary and mathematics. The co-founders of RaiseYourIQ - Dr. Sarah Cassidy and Dr. Bryan Roche still work in education research and academia today. All children need to learn the same basic skills sets in order to learn well and thrive in school. At RaiseYourIQ we call these essential skills “relational skills”. In numerous published studies, these relational skills have been implicated in creative problem solving, reading and mathematical ability. But SMART brain training is not just for kids with learning problems. SMART allows every child and student to reach their full intellectual potential.
Yes. Brain training teaches kids and students how to
learn better. Teachers, students and schools can use SMART brain
training cross curriculum to improve IQ and improve a range of
"relational skills" including better vocabulary skills, improved memory
retention and brain processing speed.
Education interventions based on training relational skills have been shown in published research to impact intellectual ability scores (measured using the WISC) and independent research into relational skills have shown that our ability to understand abstract relations corresponds to scores on standard IQ tests (e.g., the WAIS and Kaufman’s brief intelligence test). The identification of relational skills as the basic building blocks of intelligence means that educational efforts will be more effective, so that all children including disadvantaged children can reach their educational potential and adults can reach beyond their assumed intellectual limits.
