Your brain doesn't have to diminish with time.
Recent scientific research has shown ways to improve your adult mind, but first you need to know what areas to work on, Daic’s Cognitive Fitness ProfileSM shows the way.

What's more, your temperament changes to suit those new skills, growing more comfortable with ambiguity and less susceptible to frustration or irritation.

"In mid life," says UCLA neurologist George Bartzokis, "you're beginning to maximize the ability to use the entirety of the information in your brain on an everyday, ongoing, second-to-second basis.

|Our testing uncovers your unique strengths & weaknesses.
We show you how to boost your mind power.
At DAIC we're experts at psychological and neuropsychological assessments that uncover a myriad of cognitive strengths and weaknesses in every individual. The full Cognitive Fitness SystemSM starts with a baseline assessment of your cognitive abilities and then compares that to successive testings at 3 year intervals to assure that typical signs of ‘mental’ aging are occurring. But even the first assessment highlights cognitive areas for you to “exercise” or strengthen through various methods we'll recommend.
You have a physical to safeguard your body, now do the same for your brain.
•A baseline Cognitive Fitness SystemSM assessment is administered by one of our experienced NYS licensed psychologists. It is a two and a half hour evaluation using sophisticated, cutting-edge tests to appraise your overall cognitive functioning. Then a full report is compiled including detailed recommendations.
This is not an IQ test.
Our aim is to develop an understanding of how your brain is working and what your strengths and weaknesses are so that we can make pinpoint recommendations to improve your brain power and remediate your specific problem areas.
You will also meet with your caring, NYS licensed psychologist test administrator for an in-depth explanation of the results, plus any recommendations proffered.
