Mixed Methods Study on LearningRx Results for Students with Dyslexia...

Aug 30, 2016 by

Abstract: To assess the real-life changes following training, we surveyed parents of former clients who had been previously diagnosed with dyslexia and later completed a LearningRx training program. The survey results from the 109 respondents indicated that a large percentage of clients saw classroom improvements such as faster reading, reading comprehension, and memory for details. Almost 50% reported achieving better grades after training, and more than 50% reported increased confidence for school. Clients also reported more positive relationships with others, more independence in completing homework, and increased participation and performance in sports. Reference: Ledbetter, C., Moore, A.

Cognitive Training with Supplemental Digital Delivery for Soldiers with TBI...

A Feasibility Study of One-On-One Cognitive Training with Supplemental Digital Delivery for Soldiers with Traumatic Brain Injury   Abstract: In this quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest feasibility study, 11 soldiers between 3 and 36 months post traumatic brain injury completed half of ThinkRx through one-on-one cognitive training at an occupational therapy clinic and half through computer-based cognitive training sessions at home. Participants achieved statistically significant gains in short term memory, associative memory, executive processing, auditory processing, and fluid reasoning with very large effect sizes; and selfreported improvements in attention, memory, and organization. Further, they achieved significant clinical changes, restoring function to normal levels in nearly all cognitive skills. Examples of clinically significant changes in memory are shown in the box plots. Reference: Ledbetter, C., Moore, A. L. , & Mitchell, T. (2016).

State Achievement Test Results for ReadRx Clients

Aug 29, 2016 by

Abstract: In 2010, LearningRx collected state reading achievement test records from 65 ReadRx graduates. Prior to training, the mean percentile for this group was 33. After training, the group had jumped to the 47th percentile in reading—nearly average for their age. Further, 91% of students who completed the ReadRx program (59 of 65) showed improvement on state reading achievement tests after the intervention. Reference: Moore, A. (2015).

Analysis of Math and Reading Achievement Before and After Cognitive Training...

Achievement Outcomes for LearningRx Students: A Differential Effects Analysis of Math and Reading Achievement Before and After Cognitive Training Abstract: To assess the outcomes of the ReadRx and MathRx programs for 2,096 students in 2008 to 2014, pre-intervention reading and math achievement scores were compared to postintervention scores on the Woodcock Johnson III Tests of Achievement. To add a measure of control, we conducted a differential effects analysis of performance on achievement tests measuring the opposite skills from which the students were trained. MathRx students made nearly twice the gains in math than the ReadRx students, and ReadRx students made nearly twice the gains in reading as the MathRx students. The results indicate that the reading and math interventions are indeed targeting the skills they are intended to remediate. Reference: Moore, A. (2015).

One-Year Retention Results for LearningRx Clients

Aug 29, 2016 by

Abstract: To assess retention of training gains for LearningRx clients, we analyzed the results for 516 clients who opted to return for a one-year follow-up assessment on the Woodcock Johnson III – Tests of Cognitive Abilities. The average age of clients who completed the follow-up testing was 10.8. Retention rates ranged from 96% to 99%, with the greatest retention of skills in visual processing, auditory processing, and logic and reasoning. Client Satisfaction Ratings Abstract: To assess client satisfaction with LearningRx training programs, parents and adult clients complete an exit survey at the end of training. From 2005-2015, over 19,000 of our 21,836 clients rated the training a 9 or a 10. 71% rated LearningRx a 10, and another 24% rated LearningRx an 8 or a 9. And in 2015, the average score across all LearningRx centers was a 9.6 out of 10! The full results can be found in LearningRx’s 48-page 2016 edition of “Client Outcomes and Research Results.”...
