Transform your classroom.
Transform lives.

With a brain-based classroom, every child can love to learn – and every teacher can make a difference.


Engage Every Student

Love Teaching Again
Make a Difference

In the conventional classroom, 1 in 3 children are automatically set up for failure.


Standardized teaching models leave many children behind


Behavioral issues distract the entire classroom


Teachers feel overwhelmed and stuck

Too many children drop out of school

The school system is often a pipeline to prison

Classrooms are locked into a restrictive teaching model

There’s a better way.

Brain-based classrooms make success possible for every child.

Every child is hard-wired to love learning – they just need the right support.

The Brain-Based Classroom equips teachers with proven methods that help you give students the best chance to achieve their potential.


Each method you’ll learn is simple and easy to implement in any learning environment.


Brain-based solutions are adaptive to each child and encourage intrinsic motivation.


Backed by neuroscience, psychology research, & real-life classroom experiences.

Kieran O’Mahony, PhD, BcID, FRGS

Brain-Based Learning Expert and Author of The Brain-Based Classroom

After a long career in education, I consistently found myself questioning the status quo. While in the faculty room we spoke in forward-looking platitudes and used phrases like “equality of educational opportunity, I realized that neither “equality” nor “opportunity” were associated with the education we were doling out.

I couldn’t help but wonder why our school systems were driving our children into bleak futures? So, I decided to spend my career seeking the solution to one of the biggest problems we face today: how can we give every student an equal opportunity to love learning?

That question led me to develop the cognitive learning model taught in The Brain-Based Classroom and our Brain-Based Solutions training programs. Now, you can develop the same understanding of the brain, and use the same techniques we used, to get incredible results for your child, classroom, or school system.

The Brain-Based Classroom has given me a new perspective on education as a teacher. I now see students, and my own children, through what is going on inside their minds and their thinking rather than feeling frustrated that they aren’t doing things exactly the way that I have told them to.

Finally, the science behind what works in learning! This is training unlike all other professional learning because it is continuously rooted in the ‘WHY.’

Why Create a Brain-Based Classroom? Every child is a hungry learner when they have the right support.

Every child is a hungry learner when they have the right support.

The problem is, most school systems are streamlined instead of supportive. Even the most determined teacher often feels trapped by rigid systems, unable to give each child the unique learning experience they need to be successful.

With Brain-Based Solutions, any teacher can learn how to make their classroom work better for their students and themselves. Educators become part of a bigger movement towards an education system that supports students’ brain development rather than focusing on extrinsic motivation and outdated reward and punishment systems.

The most amazing thing about brain-based classroom solutions is that they work no matter the child. The skills you’ll learn here will help you engage any student, and make teaching a more rewarding experience for you.

Yet, with a child dropping out of school and into uncertainty every 26 seconds, their future is at risk.

As a teacher, administrator, or guardian, you have the power to reverse this trend and guide children to a successful, meaningful life.
