What’s LearningRx? Watch the video!

Nov 23, 2016 by

What is LearningRx personal brain training and why does it work? LearningRx one-on-one brain training focuses on a set of seven cognitive skills that allow us to learn easier, think faster, and perform better: http://www.learningrx.com. This video explains what these skills are and how they affect our ability to perform even the simplest tasks. Hear first-hand what LearningRx graduates and their parents have to say about our program. “If you want to gain physical endurance, you exercise with intensity,” says Christina Ledbetter, PhD, neurologist and research fellow at LSU Health Sciences Center. “If you want to gain brain function, you exercise your brain with intensity. It’s that feature of the LearningRx program that most impresses me. We see these great results because we train intensely.” To read the research and results on thousands of LearningRx clients, visit http://www.learningrx.com/results. Watch the video here:...

LearningRx RCT accepted by Medical News Today

Sep 29, 2016 by

“Much more than ‘brain games”: Clinician-delivered cognitive training improves multiple cognitive skills and general intelligence in children” The results of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) support the efficacy of LearningRx’s ThinkRx personal brain training in improving cognitive skills and IQ scores in students ages 8 to 14. The study showed statistically significant generalized improvements in six cognitive skills – associative memory, working memory, long-term memory, visual and auditory processing, logic and reasoning, and processing speed – as well as a 21-point mean increase in overall General Intelligence Ability (GIA) testing scores, an established measure of IQ....

Cognitive Training with Supplemental Digital Delivery for Soldiers with TBI: Functional Results...

Sep 1, 2016 by

Abstract: As part of the quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest feasibility study with 11 soldiers between 3 and 36 months post traumatic brain injury, researchers collected personal pre-intervention goals from each participant. At the completion of the study, researchers collected self-reported improvements from each participant. The results reveal a variety of improvements beyond the initial training goals.

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. L. , & Mitchell, T. (2016). Mixed Methods Study on LearningRx Results for Students with Dyslexia. Technical report in preparation.

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).
