Education is broken for many children. In spite of dedicated teachers, vast amounts of money spent in schools, and hundreds of thousands of hours each year spent instructing and tutoring students, there are still far too many children who do not fulfil their true potential.

As a passionate educator and school leader with 14 years of UK and international experience, I felt unsatisfied with the current educational practices that left too many learners on the sidelines.  To understand and address the root causes of academic difficulties for many learners, I decided to undertake a Masters degree in Mind, Brain and Education at Harvard University during 2009-2010.

By establishing The Brain & Learning, I hope to bring the latest cognitive and neuroscientific research to transform the lives of many learners for the first time in the UAE.  We offer Brain Training programs that go beyond symptoms and address the source of both learning problems and untapped learning potential.

 

About Us

Cognitive Skills Survey
About the Founder:  Dr. Ken Gibson
Dr Ken Gibson

Dr. Ken Gibson, has been shaped by his life experiences to bring the power of brain training and the passion of professionals and educators together into what has become leading cognitive skills training network in North America.

Dr. Ken Gibson’s Testimonial:
I struggled to read all through my school years. Back then, so little was known about the causes behind learning and reading struggles that I was essentially on my own.

Today, I would be labeled dyslexic. Many of my other cognitive skills were strong. I could (and often did) study 5 minutes before spelling tests and score 100%, but then would misspell those same words later on my written assignments.

I had an undiagnosed cognitive skill weakness that made it difficult for me to distinguish sounds and sound out words. These weaknesses made school far more difficult than it needed to be, but I compensated for my weaknesses, worked excessively hard, and persevered through to a professional graduate program.

When I began my professional career I learned that I wasn’t unique in my reading struggles. Thousands of others struggled to learn and read. That motivated me to co-create the cognitive skills programs that form the foundation of our brain training programs today.

Each positive result fuelled our team’s motivation to help more children achieve or surpass the academic level of their peers. This passion burns in me as strong today as ever! The excitement I experience seeing our brain training programs impact lives every day continues to fuel that passion.

With the continuing advancements in research and new training available from our centers all across the country and the world, enduring the struggles that I endured as a child, accepting labels like dyslexic or ADHD, settling for low learning potential, or compensating for learning weaknesses is simply no longer necessary. Parents now have options that work.

I invite you to take a look at what The Brain & Learning offers and contact us.  I am excited, and certain that we can help.

To your learning success,

Ken Gibson

Managing Director of The Brain & Learning

With years of experience across a range of global industries I decided it was time to turn my skills and experience to use in the field of education to make a greater impact across the community.

I added an education focus to my MBA at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2010 through cross registering at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education.  I returned to Dubai to establish  The Brain and Learning, a sustainable company, that can have real and lasting impact on the lives of struggling learners across the Middle East.

One of our goals is to help learners of all ages across every country in the Gulf region.
