All of our programs cover the required age appropriate academic skills practiced for specific age groups/grade levels in and out of school, as well as a majority of math and language state and core standards. Our approach to academic learning is through a multi-sensory, real world approach that will help children see the value in the information we are offering.
Of the many compelling reasons for providing students with instruction to build vocabulary, none is more important than the contribution of vocabulary knowledge to reading comprehension. Indeed, one of the most enduring findings in reading research is the extent to which students’ vocabulary knowledge relates to the mind images created through cognitive learning and real world experience. Without a personal vocabulary stored in the brain, children cannot and will not read to their needed ability.

Academics are the foundation of early learning, elementary school and beyond. However, Cognitive Development and Critical thinking are equally important to a child’s learning ability. The learning programs provided by Accelerating Young Minds develop cognitive and critical thinking skills through real world simulation. The brain thinks in terms of reality. Example: here is the word “Apple”, think about an apple. Did you think of it in a real world setting or a cartoon setting? Many of our activities offer real world pictures, human voice over and instruction.
Accelerating Young Minds assesses your students’ understanding as they practice each learning activity and generates detailed performance reports based on their progress. With a single click of your mouse, you can view any of AYM’s multiple comprehensive reports in real time, which includes everything from cognitive development data to progress toward meeting State and Core Standards. Each report is delivered to teachers and parents in real time, and offers data driven action plans that are simple to interpret and drive individual instruction.
All of our programs and data can be accessed by students, teachers and parents from anywhere there is internet access on any compatible device. Additionally, students have the ability to resume their studies from where they left off previously, so their learning journey is seamless and easy.
That is why our programs are scientifically based around the development of the brain. Each activity provides a multi-sensory approach, building connections through virtual, real world simulation while developing critical thinking skills. AYM’s quantifiable learning goals are:
