What is BrainyAct?
BrainyAct Natural Abilities Assessment identifies a child’s natural way of solving problems, communicating, and learning most effectively. It’s a scientifically validated hands-on assessment for verbal and nonverbal children age 3+.
BrainyAct was developed by an expert on human instincts, Kathy Kolbe. It incorporates her more than 40 years of rigorous brain research on what factors enable and hinder peak performance.
Most children’s individual needs aren’t met by the education system. Each BrainyAct assessment result includes printable reports dozens of Tips and Tricks – proven to work for reducing stress and overcoming frustrating obstacles at home and in school.
How does it work?
During BrainyAct assessments, children are given the freedom to take action in their own way – free of learned behavior, preferences, and beliefs. By acting purely on creative instincts, the child reveals an ingrained pattern of doing things – their Natural Abilities.
Assessments are given by our certified BrainyAct Provider, Dr. Lindsay Perez. An unopened bag of materials will be given to your child (pictured here) and they will be asked to create a work of art with the supplies given. A typical session lasts about 8-12 minutes and is recorded and sent to Dynamynd, Inc. to generate the comprehensive report. Sessions may be held in person or via Zoom.
Once you receive your results, Dr. Perez will schedule a time to review them with you and ensure all your questions are answered.
"I'm so thankful we did the BrainyAct assessment for my daughter. It gave me great insight into how to help her feel more confident and more successful. The personalized tips and tricks make it simple to understand and are easy for us to implement. I plan on printing the report out for her teacher this year!"

“The BrainyAct has been a great tool to have a s a parent. It helped me better understand why my boys react the way they do, and what I can do to support their conative strengths. Some things I learned include that both of my boys lead with a need for information. They enjoy open-ended exploration and need an opportunity to try things for themselves. They also both need movement and hands-on opportunities to fix, repair, and deconstruct in order to find solutions that are productive. However, they differ in their need for structure and routine. My youngest has a natural tendency to move from one task to another without a need for completion. I needed to simplify processes for him (like cleaning up) and not have too many rules on how he completes a task – just that it needs to be done. My older son needs more organization and is pretty systematic. He follows procedures and sticks to the plan and is thrown off if someone tries to adjust it midway. Although my boys are still young, I am especially impressed with the “tips and tricks” that I can share with them as they encounter difficulties in school.”
