Is Brain Training Your Most Effective Option?

My Personal Journey

Does your student struggle to learn or read? I understand because I too struggled as a young student. As a child I simply could not read fluently. Back then, little was known about the specifics of learning and reading struggles; I was on my own. By today’s standards, I would be labeled dyslexic. I studied five minutes before spelling tests and scored 100%, but failed the six-week reviews. I couldn’t sound out words, or remember things very well. Despite the difficulty, I compensated for my weaknesses, worked excessively hard, and persevered through a professional graduate program. Over the years I learned that I wasn’t unique in my reading struggles. That motivated me to co-create the cognitive skills programs that form the foundation of LearningRx today. Our brain training programs have succeeded beyond my expectations. On average, we get twice the results in less than half the time of tutoring or other learning or reading programs available to parents today. With advancements in research and new available training, accepting labels like “dyslexic,” settling for low learning potential, or simply compensating for learning problems is no longer necessary. Simple testing can uncover the root cause of almost any student’s struggle. The right personalized training can turn that weakness into a lifetime of strong learning and performance.

Success tomorrow depends on good choices today. Don’t waste time and money on programs that have little or no chance of success. If you compared the cost of tutoring — in time, energy, and money — with our customized one-on-one brain training, which is the better investment? The answer is clear — LearningRx brain training wins hands down. A 2005 study by the Chicago School District measured the results of a year of reading tutoring given to 56,000 students using 30+ tutoring programs. The results after one year: the effort added only one month of reading proficiency on average! Even the six best-performing programs among the 30+ programs tested netted students only four months’ improvement! Contrast those gains to the gains experienced by students who went through LearningRx’s brain training based reading program. ReadRx achieved net gains of over 3.5 years — that’s 3.5 years of reading improvement in 24 weeks of training or less! Nothing else can achieve what brain training can.

o you struggle to read, or know of someone who does? Here is one important fact that can help you experience dramatic improvement quickly. Most struggling readers have a corresponding auditory processing skill weakness. Auditory processing weakness can manifest in several ways: difficulty distinguishing between similar sounds, trouble recognizing simple sound combinations, and struggling to accurately blend sounds together. Any of these cognitive skill weaknesses will hinder fluent reading. Only a reading program that uncovers and strengthens weak auditory processing skills has any chance of producing lasting reading improvement. This is where the power of brain training makes the difference! Brain training leads to increased reading potential Effective reading help begins by identifying any weak underlying skills — like memory or auditory processing. Skill-specific training exercises build strength. Once a strong cognitive foundation is restored, a unique sound-to-code reading system develops new reading techniques and habits in the student. Reading is quickly transformed from a slow, choppy effort into a fast and efficient learning tool. An assessment is the first step. To see if cognitive skill weaknesses are the cause of your or your child’s reading difficulties, contact a LearningRx Brain Training Center today.

oung or old, for your entire life, your brain retains the capacity to reassign unused or little-used neurons (brain cells) and synapses (connections) in response to properly designed mental training exercises. The science built into LearningRx brain training maximizes the brain’s adaptability (neuroplasticity) to expand the specific areas used to process and store information. These newly developed “power centers” generate fresh mental capacity that enhances memory skills, and easily outpaces natural age-related decline in the elderly. This means that brain training can enhance and extend vital memory skills for the student, the career adult, or the senior adult.

Struggling Students: Brain training attacks learning problems at the cause and strengthens weak skills. This makes learning easier and self-esteem and confidence skyrocket. Lifelong struggles can be overcome in only a few weeks of brain training. High-Achieving Students: Brain training uncovers hidden learning potential and maximizes already strong learning skills in advanced students. Enhancing thinking and reasoning speed truly gives advanced students an unmatched competitive edge. Preschool to First-Grade Students: Brain training with LearningRx’s LiftOff program eliminates any hidden skill weaknesses before they have a chance to dampen that enthusiasm, hinder learning, and create frustration. School success is virtually guaranteed.

“Mekyla’s personality has changed since LearningRx. Her self-confidence has increased 200%. Her reading has improved immensely. She no longer stops to sound out words - it’s a continual flow of the words. She sees and understands what she has read. I truly feel this experience has given her the tools to continue through life on any path she chooses. Thank you, LearningRx!“  Melinda G, Lincoln, NE

College-Age Students: Brain training helps students hit their college years in full stride, and avoid the sense of being overwhelmed. Maximize your college investment with brain training. Career Adults: Learning challenges are presented with every new job or potential promotion. Brain training can strengthen weak skills at any age. Faster learning is a significant career advantage and can open otherwise inaccessible doors. Senior Adults: Natural aging does impact memory and reasoning skills, but these declines are not inevitable. Brain training takes advantage of cognitive reserve and the brain’s ability to change — its lifelong ability to build new pathways, memory, and reasoning “power centers” — to reverse or slow down the effects of aging. Accident Victims: Specific brain training exercises quickly rebuild individual cognitive skills lost due to traumatic brain injury. Training rehabilitates the brain and restores lost mental function by allocating new neurons, synapses, and pathways to compensate for any damaged areas and loss of function.
