What is SOI®?
SOI stands for Structure of Intellect, which is a theory of the functions and products of human intelligence. It is a system of tests and training materials to develop intellectual abilities. The SOI® is based on the work of J. P. Guilford whose search for intellectual abilities began in 1940 and lasted until 1959.
Structure of Intellects System® (SOI) is the basis of academic/educational assessment. Based on J. P. Guilfords theory of multiple intelligences and developed by Dr. Mary Meeker for use in schools, SOI tests a range of intelligence abilities which are needed for success with academic studies or career placement. Mary Meeker found that intelligence is not fixed. Intelligence can be developed.
Upon diagnosing strengths and weaknesses, uses SOIs follow-up program of activities to build potential abilities to enable success in school or in life. This program has wide-ranging applications in reading readiness, academic assessment and remediation, and career counseling.
The MindMenders Program makes the brain more efficient.
•We test to identify 27 abilities required for learning reading, arithmetic, math or

The MindMenders Program makes learning easy and fun!
"I know my child is intelligent, so why can't my child learn and do well in school?"
Schools should be in the business of training intelligence, not just imparting knowledge.
Knowledge, the acquisition and recall of information, is important,
but knowledge is only one of the five major kinds of intelligence.
SOI® is a system of tests and activities used for developing
90 kinds of intelligence.
