There has been a significant trend toward brain games among the American public over the last few years. It started primarily among the Baby Boomer generation in an effort to stave off the deterioration of the mind that can accompany aging. But Kabongo has applied similar methods of this contemporary cognitive neuroscience in their new online kids games at GoGo Kabongo.

Kabongo applies the approach of the renowned cognitive neuroscientists J.P. Das, PhD, and Dr. Jack Naglieri, Professor at George Mason University, an expert in cognitive assessment. The cognitive psychologist and game design team at Kabongo created their online kids games to build attention and focus, planning, and processing skills, all essential to learning to read.
