What You Need to Know
The Base Family Program: Self-Guided

What You Do in the 11-Week* Family Course

  • Open your new weekly materials link at the start of each week.

  • Click on each day’s link on that corresponding day.

  • Follow the steps appearing on each day’s page, which includes doing (daily) 30-minutes of the lower brain movements** alongside your child. (You decide when during the day you do this.)

  • Learn about the nervous system and brain within that 30-minute period, where you and your child listen (on average) to 2-3 short audio clips while doing the lower brain movements and take short breaks to watch (on average) 2-3 entertaining and informative videos.

  • Spend about another 10 minutes from Sunday to Friday (also at any time you choose) to watch additional videos and audio clips, as well to review infographics and pdf files that summarize and support each day’s content. (This part is just for parents.)

  • Give your brain a chance to integrate what you’ve learned within the first half of the course by reviewing prior materials or just taking a break from learning anything new during Brain Integration Week. (While no new materials are presented that week, you and your child still do the daily lower brain movements.)

  • Answer the questions in the course’s periodic reflection questionnaires (even though you don’t submit them for feedback) since such questions will help you integrate what you have learned.


  * You begin this course with two (parent-only) pre-course weeks. Kids join you in Week 1 for the remaining 9 weeks.

  ** You can opt to change the 30-minute daily commitment to 20 minutes for some (or all) days, while noting that such modifications may delay how quickly you experience changes.

The Realities

It’s a challenge to make reality statements sound cheery, so please know that we’re way nicer than how this might come across.

  • Since we don’t offer refunds, be sure you’re able to do the course as intended before you enroll.

  • Exceptions are if unexpected extenuating circumstances now make it impossible for you to continue with the course. In such a case, we offer a one-time credit for the following session.

  • Since Brain Highways is not a medical program, there is, unfortunately, no way for medical insurance or flex plans to pay for this course.

  • While we always appreciate enthusiasm when learning, you can’t share any of the course materials with those outside of your family, such as forwarding links or duplicating materials or trying to teach parts of the program to others.

  • There is truly no additional support with this self-guided-only option, meaning there is no interaction with staff via email or phone to answer questions about the course; however, there is support if (for whatever reason) you have trouble accessing the weekly materials.

  • While participants can download and save all the course’s infographics and pdf files, they no longer have access to that week’s audio clips and videos once they receive the next week’s link. (Knowing this helps to motivate participants to do the program daily and not fall behind.)

  • In a world where who’s liable is sometimes ambiguous, we want to clarify here that you assume full responsibility and all liability for whatever your family chooses to do related to your participation in the Family Program.

The Best Part

  • You change your brain and nervous system—and have lots of fun while doing so!
