What’s LearningRx? Watch the video!

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:...

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).
