What Do Our Clients Say About Us?
35+ Years of Research
Since the 1980s, LearningRx founder Dr. Ken Gibson and his colleagues have helped more than 100,000 clients with a unique cognitive training methodology designed to strengthen the core skills the brain uses to think and learn. Dr. Gibson has devoted his entire career to helping children and adults struggling with learning, reading, remembering, paying attention, and more. He began with a visual information processing intervention (improving how the brain creates mental images for better memory and comprehension), but today the program does so much more.
How Does LearningRx Training Work?
Cognitive Skills Assessment
The Cognitive Skills Assessment is foundational to everything we do. We use this assessment to identify your unique cognitive skill strengths and weaknesses. It’s how we customize our program to ensure the best results possible.
For many families, the consultation provides that “Aha!” kind of moment when everything suddenly makes sense. You’ll see exactly how your unique cognitive skill strengths and weaknesses are behind many of the successes—and struggles—you’ve been experiencing.
One-on-One Training
We identified cognitive weaknesses during the assessment; now we target those weak skills with intense mental exercise. You’ll work face to face with a brain trainer about an hour a day for 12 to 32 weeks, depending on the program that’s right for you. Your trainer will make the experience fun while coaching you through the most effective workout possible.

What Is One-on-One Brain Training?
Struggles with reading, memory, attention, and learning are typically caused by weak cognitive skills—a condition common in kids and adults that’s often overlooked. Our unique programs target and strengthen those weak skills.
Backed by Research and Science!
Dr. Ken Gibson developed and perfected a unique cognitive training program that has helped over 100,000 kids and adults. This report provides an overview of client results, as well as major research on our programs.
Struggling? We can help. Our approach to brain training goes beyond basic tutoring by improving attention, math, memory, and reading skills in ways that last.
Brain training strengthens the core skills the brain uses to think, learn, read, remember, reason, pay attention, and solve problems—mental processes we use every day, in every area of life.

Clients of all ages come to us seeking the kinds of life changing improvements that come with faster, better cognitive performance. And while we don’t diagnose or treat medical conditions, our programs have improved the cognitive performance of clients with a variety of diagnoses and struggles, including the following:
Attention and ADHD
Attention struggles make it harder to keep up in class or on the job, complete tasks or assignments, follow instructions, feel confident, juggle the demands of life, and even drive safely. The good news is that attention is a skill that can be trained and strengthened.
Dyslexia Struggles
Studies show that weak cognitive skills are at the root of 85% of all reading struggles! This is why interventions—like one-on-one brain training—that strengthen auditory processing and other cognitive skills get such tremendous results.
Learning Disabilities
The brain uses a core set of skills to think and learn. These skills include attention, memory, auditory processing, visual processing, logic & reasoning, and overall processing speed—and if even one of these skills are weak, it can hinder thinking, learning, reading, remembering, paying attention, and more.
LearningRx programs are particularly great for kids and adults on the spectrum. Why? LearningRx brain training sessions are structured and rewarding. Plus, the one-on-one nature of the coaching relationship allows each mental workout to be customized to the unique needs, abilities, and goals of every client.
Brain Injuries
Many victims of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) experience changes in cognitive performance, leaving victims and their families struggling with what to do next. LearningRx brain training targets and improves cognitive performance regardless of diagnosis, so the impact can be life changing.
Struggling Kids
Let’s face it, when cognitive skills (like attention, memory, and processing speed) are weak, life is harder than it needs to be. When kids struggle in school and life, it’s imperative to find out if weak cognitive skills are at the root of the problem. Because if they are, those weak skills can be strengthened.

What Parents Want to Know!
Q: Won’t my child outgrow his or her learning struggle?

A: Not necessarily. Children and teens who struggle do so for a reason, and the reason is often weak cognitive skills. As your child is maturing, weak cognitive skills don’t necessarily catch up (which is why adults can struggle with learning, memory, or attention, too). Perhaps a better question is, while your child is struggling, how are those struggles impacting his or her self-image? Confidence? Love of learning? Whatever stage of education or life your child is in, it’s never too soon to take action to work on weak cognitive skills.

Q: I have to drag my child kicking and screaming to tutoring sessions and it’s exhausting. Will brain training be as painful—for both of us?

A: At LearningRx, our mental workouts consist of challenging, interactive games. Does training feel hard at times? Absolutely. Does it feel like school, tutoring, or homework? Absolutely not. Of course, we can’t guarantee how your child will react, but we hear over and over from parents how much their kids love coming to training. When a child is struggling, there are plenty of experiences to dread in school and life. We don’t want brain training to be one of them.

Q: What if the brain training exercises are too hard? Will my child be able to keep up?

A: At some point, we guarantee the exercises will be too hard. But not so hard that, with a little effort and some encouraging coaching, they can’t be done. And there’s nothing we love more than the look on the face of a kid who just accomplished something that, five minutes earlier, he believed with all his heart he couldn’t do. Our trainers are experts at taking kids (and adults) to the edge of their comfort zones…and beyond. Confidence isn’t found on this side of the comfort boundary, and that makes finding it all the sweeter.
We often get asked, "Is brain training similar to tutoring?"
Not at all. While both are effective, brain training and tutoring are actually different solutions to different problems.

From kindergarten through grad school, students typically struggle because of one of two problems:

New information wasn’t grasped because it was presented poorly (or missed entirely)
Weak cognitive skills are making it hard to grasp new information (even when it is presented well)
Tutoring works on the first problem; LearningRx brain training works on the second.

There are definitely times to hire a tutor. For example, if your child didn’t learn classroom content because he or she was home with the flu, because a teacher on maternity leave was replaced by a string of substitutes, or because construction workers nearby were operating jackhammers all month long, hire a tutor. In other words, if identifiable circumstances have interfered with the delivery of information to your child, hiring someone to redeliver that information makes sense.

There are also times to hire a one-on-one brain trainer. For example, if your child is struggling in school in general—struggling in more than one class, or struggling over the course of several school years— help from a brain trainer can make a real difference. This is because brain training targets the cognitive weaknesses that are keeping your child from repeatedly grasping new information when it’s presented in class.
We call it brain training. Our clients (and their families) call it life changing.
Find out if cognitive training can make life easier for you or someone you love. The first step is to give us a call and schedule an initial brain skills Assessment. The Assessment takes about an hour and is very reasonably priced (if you mention that you came from this page you'll get $50 off! 

More importantly, it will give you a world of information about cognitive strengths and weaknesses, as well as insights into the next best step. Call us today and get the answers you need!
