Here’s a little background on the development of the LearningRx procedures:

In the early 1970s, Dr. Ken Gibson, a pediatric optometrist and specialist in visual processing, became fascinated by the question, “How can we help people learn easier and faster?”

Determined to find the answer, Dr. Gibson began compiling experiences with children and adults. In addition to his own practice, he founded preschools and learning centers and worked with kids in those settings, too. He also began researching the latest developments in any field or science related to the brain, applying those developments to his growing body of work.

Soon he discovered an interesting pattern. He realized that students were paying attention better and recalling important facts more easily after being coached through short but intense periods of mental exercise. The doctor was intrigued. Could these results be replicated? Deciding to test his theory on 35 students who were struggling with reading, Gibson created a three-month program. Unlike any reading remedy that had been attempted before, the program wasn’t based on tutoring or reading instruction; instead, it consisted of mental workouts.

The results were far better than Dr. Gibson had dared hope for.

Eventually, Dr. Gibson compiled a series of specialized exercises that worked on specific cognitive weaknesses. With the help of other educational and psychological specialists, these exercises were tested and refined over an additional 16 years. Ultimately, they became the foundation of the LearningRx brain training system.

Today LearningRx is a pioneer and leader in brain training.
