LeanringRx Reduces Academic Difficulties and Behavioral Issues
New Research Shows LearningRx Personal Brain Training Transfers to Real-Life Benefits
The results of a study published in Frontiers in Education highlight the benefits of LearningRx one-on-one cognitive skills training and the LearningRx reading program ReadRx in reducing academic difficulty and behavioral issues.
The study showed statistically significant differences between the two treatment groups and the control group on ratings of paying attention, speed of work, reading skills, remembering facts, visualization skills and problem-solving. Significant improvements in long-term memory, processing speed, auditory processing, fluid reasoning, working memory, and visual processing were also noted in the treatment groups.
“A lot of people ask if cognitive training transfers to real life,” says LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) Chief Research Officer Tanya Mitchell. “This controlled, clinician-delivered study showed that a large group of students saw not only significant gains in the measurements of their brain skills, but also decreases in academic difficulties and behavioral issues. These findings indicate that LearningRx programs might be useful as an intervention for children and teens with learning and behavioral struggles.”
