Our Experience with Clients on the Autism Spectrum
Over a nine-year period, 1,049 children and adults came to LearningRx with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. We measured the cognitive skills of these clients before and after brain training.
Here’s what we discovered:
- Among clients who came to us diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, the most dramatic improvements were seen in long-term memory, broad attention, and auditory processing.
- Long-term memory skills improved an average of 3.3 years following LearningRx brain training.
- The average gain in age-equivalent cognitive skills performance was 3.2 years.

How Parents Can Help Their Autistic Children
If you are a parent to a child with autism, here are ways you can provide additional support for them in addition to the services at LearningRx - Colorado Springs.
Find community for your child. Whether it’s programs dedicated to working with autism or a group of parents and children that want to do activities together, get your child involved. It can encourage a habit of trying new things and socializing for your child.
Find community for yourself. You are not alone, and it is incredibly important for you to find parents in similar situations. They can provide insights, information, and support that others cannot. Find a parent group or join your child’s PTA and form relationships with parents of children at the same autism level as your child.
It’s okay to take time and find a babysitter. No matter how challenging your child is, it is important to take time for yourself and get your child to spend some time without you. Look for a babysitter that has experience working with children that have autism and get out of the house, even if it is just for a couple of hours.
Inform friends and family. The saying “it takes a village” is true for any child, especially a child with autism. Inform your friends and family about everything you are learning and how they can also provide support for your child.
Ask questions. If you have enrolled your child in our programs at LearningRx, ask questions about what we are doing and how you can support the progress your child is making. Being actively involved is one of the best things a parent can do for the success of their children.
