Brain Wise Learning
Brain Wise Learning
You're worried and frustrated
It can be so difficult at school or in the workplace if you struggle with speech, spelling, reading or writing.
Cognitive research has come a long way in the last 30 years and there is hope. Books like "The Brain That Changes Itself" by Dr Norman Doidge and "Reading in the Brain" by Stanislas Dehaene give good examples.
Whether you're already on a waiting list for speech pathology or not, we may be able to help.
We can help you
With cutting edge research and assistive EDUtech
With evidence based technology that has been used globally since the 1990s by speech therapists and whole school districts with great results.
Designed to improve auditory processing skills conveniently at home, at school or with your speech therapist.
We can improve how the brain processes the sounds of your language. This leads to better receptive and expressive communication.
To learn, grow and thrive
With commitment and effort, you can improve mindset, memory, attention, language, communication, social skills and the ability to learn.
Naturally, without medication, and thanks to the latest evidence based brain research.
Whether you want to improve learning at school, your communication skills at work, or enhance your voice for that performance edge, come on in and start a conversation.
If you have not met me before, my name is Monique Peters and 10 years ago, I was stressed and worried about how well my son was learning in Year 5.
Then I learned about auditory processing disorder from a book called "The Brain That Changes Itself" by Dr Norman Doidge. I found out not only what was causing the problem, but that the latest brain research has worked out how to improve the ABILITY to learn.
Since then, I have dedicated my life to increasing awareness about auditory processing, its role in learning, and how to improve it. By placing the right demand on the brain, we can now improve the brain's pathways in the four critical pillars of learning:
So how can Brain Wise Learning help you?
Book a free info session and find out. Our signature auditory processing programs range between $160 to $60 a week for 6 to 12 weeks, depending on how quickly you'd like results and the support you need to get those results. These evidence based, online programs can be done at home, at school, or even as part of speech therapy and/or tutoring. NDIS self managed or plan managed clients have had their programs approved.
Or, perhaps you're part of a group and would like to hear a presentation on auditory processing and learning from a parent's point of view, or how a growth mindset can help you break free from your comfort zone and live your best life.
What are the signs of an
auditory processing disorder?
developmental language disorder
dyscalculia (difficulty reading numbers)
Other indicators of an auditory processing disorder are:
Let's work together ...
- auditory processing and
it's role in learning
- the hope that brain
research is offering
- developing a growth
mindset for perseverance
The last 30 years of brain research has proven that our brains are more
flexible than we ever believed. We now see the brain more like a muscle!
It means that cognitive weaknesses in functions like memory can be strengthened.
Understanding neuroplasticity is bringing hope to struggling learners and anyone recovering from a brain injury.

Noah was born with just 2% of a brain. But against the odds, his family worked tirelessly on developing what was there. Then at age 4, Noah's brain scans showed something very remarkable and very unexpected - his brain had grown to 80%! Noah is showing doctors in England and around the world the power and potential of neuroplasticity.

This short video gives a simple explanation of neuroplasticity and how the neural pathways in our brain get wired and rewired. The animation also helps to understand it.
Courtesty of Trevor Ragan (Train Ugly) - 1 November 2018
What you believe about learning will govern how you feel and behave. If you believe that learning will always be difficult, you'll be tempted to always take the easy way out. Conversely, if you believe that learning will always be easy, how long can you sustain your effort when challenged? Trevor is amazing and his video gives a good explanation of how important it is.

In just 20 minutes, respected Stanford professor Bruce McCandliss will help you understand how neuroscience is shifting education. Through fMRI imaging, we are now able to measure the effectiveness of different teaching methods safely on children and how this research will soon change outcomes for children who learn differently.
