It’s possible that different people, such as a parent and teacher, may score this quiz differently.

Part 2: Scoring and Interpreting the Results
0 points

This child has likely completed his lower brain development.


1-4 points 

This child most likely has a good number of highways in place, although it’s also possible that he has a much more underdeveloped lower brain than what his score indicates. How is that possible?


Well, the child may be compensating in ways that are currently effective, especially if he’s young and there aren’t many academic and social expectations at this time. In such case, there will likely be more signs of a possible lower brain connection (he’ll have a higher score) as he ages and those academic and social expectations continually increase.

5-9 points

This child may already be showing signs that there’s some underdevelopment of the lower centers of the brain. Again, as with the point range above, it’s also possible there is more underdevelopment than what is presently showing for the same stated reasons.


In this category, some kids may additionally seem to start out doing a task well, only to have the quality of work or their focus deteriorate quickly. When this happens, the child’s behavior is often misinterpreted as goofing around or not trying hard enough, rather than understanding that the compensations are only effective for a short period of time.


Over 10 points

This child may be showing signs that the lower centers of the brain are significantly underdeveloped. In this category, the child does not have enough highways to rely on effective compensations that (consistently) work well, and so he is often perceived as bothering others and struggling in many arenas.

Count the number of checked boxes. Then look below to read what that total may indicate in terms of lower brain development.

Part 3: Connecting Behaviors with Lower Brain Development
To learn how some behaviors in this screening quiz specifically correlate to incomplete lower brain development, read these explanations:
  • Can I screen myself?
    No. These screenings are facilitated by another person who has learned to not only give the exact directions, but who also has learned what to observe and how that relates to possible problems in our daily life. However, individuals can do our online screening quiz all on their own.
  • Do I need to purchase anything to facilitate the screenings?
    No, the screenings either require nothing extra, or they need a handout related to the screening challenge, which is included in the course.
  • Is Brain Highways staff available to answer individual questions?
    No, the format of this course does not include that kind of interaction.
  • Is it necessary to learn how to do each of the three primary screenings?
    No, the core screening provides a very accurate picture of the lower brain development. The other screenings just provide even more information.
  • How quickly does someone become skilled at facilitating a lower brain screening?
    The brain learns best by experience. The more you practice facilitating a lower brain screening, the more skilled you become. At one point, facilitating a lower brain screening becomes automated and effortless to do.
  • What does the connect module of the program include?
    This part of the program offers simple ways to apply what was learned about a person’s lower brain development as we now set up our class or work or home environment, interact with such people, assign tasks, and more. Not only does this module includes over 100 specific suggestions, but it also explains why we can expect such people (and ourselves) to go into protection mode if no accommodations are ever made.
Part 1: The Checklist
