This results in learning difficulties that children experience during the first school semester.

The Brain Workshop in Dubai is well-known for being the ideal place to improve your brain development at any age. Specialising in developing learning and cognitive skills, The Brain Workshop experts enhance children’s cognitive skills through research-based programs that train the brain. The Brain Workshop devoted team can accurately identify the real reasons behind the learning disability and help create successful strategies to boost cognitive skills.

During The Summer Brain Camp, kids will take part in various fun yet challenging and enriching activities like:

  • Brain Booster Sessions
  • Rubik's cube
  • Chess
  • Arabic Fluency Games
  • Communication and Comprehension
  • EQ sessions
  • Cognitive Games
  • Mandala Art

Hurry up to secure a spot at The Summer Brain Camp to keep those little curious minds cognitively stimulated.
