partners in progressPartner Profile: American Institute of Learning
& Cognitive Development

The Laurus Foundation is proud to introduce our newest Partner In Progress, American Institute of Learning & Cognitive Development (AILCD).

Robert Kauffman and Jack Wright, Senior Partners at the American Institute of Learning & Cognitive Development created and implemented a training plan that successfully improved the effectiveness of a battalion of the United State Marine Corps using cognitive training.
Cognitive training and neurofeedback therapy can also help people who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and head injuries regain functionality.
In neurological functioning, a minor change can make profound differences in our daily experience. When stress, other outside factors or biologically based mechanisms disturb our nervous system’s equilibrium, neurofeedback training can trigger our brains own ability to rebalance and may be experienced as a reversal of the effects of stress.
The importance of performing at our peak potential is clearly evident in our daily activities: when we participate in business, academics, athletics, or other activities requiring high levels of functioning. If we have experienced a physical or emotional trauma, we may have become neurologically imbalanced.


Reclaiming our lost potential through neurofeedback can return us to a world of new possibilities. Neurofeedback works by monitoring and helping us reregulate our brain’s electrical signals.
Currently, Yuriy Zmysly, who suffered an anoxic brain injury, is undergoing neurofeedback therapy at AILCD. After just one session of neurofeedback, Yuriy was able to sleep for 8 hours straight for the very first time and he did that for three nights in a row.
The goals for Yuriy are to trigger his brain’s ability to rebalance itself and to regain equilibrium, recover from stress, improve cognitive functioning and motor control, and, more specifically, improve his vision, motor skills, and speech.
Successful training seems to help our brain and nervous system regain equilibrium to better balance and control itself. The results are indisputable. Visit to learn more about AILCD, neurofeedback and cognitive Training.
