Cognitive Skills Training for a Lifetime of Benefits
ThinkRx® is a fully-integrated system of drills and training exercises that are delivered in an intense, one-on-one environment and are designed to attack and rapidly correct weak or underdeveloped cognitive learning skills. It is not designed to tutor or teach clients academic subjects; rather it will develop the underlying skills required to learn effectively. Cognitive skills – auditory processing, visual processing, short and long-term memory, comprehension, logic and reasoning, and attention skills – are fundamental to a person’s ability to receive, process, and retain information. The ThinkRx training program strengthens these skills, allowing the student to learn efficiently.
How It Works
Clients begin their journey at LearningRx® with a Brain Skills Assessment of their existing cognitive abilities. This allows experts at LearningRx to identify any weak cognitive skills. A custom training program is then designed to strengthen the weak skills and integrate and enhance the entire cognitive skill set.
LearningRx does not teach academic subject matter; rather, it trains the underlying cognitive skills required to learn efficiently and effectively. The drills are structured in a non-academic manner, using exercises not tied to an academic discipline. This enables us to counteract any frustrations an individual might typically have with trying to learn academic subjects and turns the cognitive training into a positive and enjoyable experience.
A Powerful, Unique Methodology
Four fundamental training techniques are combined to set ThinkRx apart as an effective cognitive skills training program.
- One-on-one Training: This creates an environment of individual support and attention that maintains an atmosphere of immediate positive reinforcement and error correction.
- Sequencing: New exercises and training are introduced in a logical order from simple to complex. This enables quick mastery of new material and constant reinforcement of earlier training gains.
- Loading: Individual training tasks are layered upon one another to progressively increase in difficulty. This promotes rapid mastery of skills and embeds the new skills at an automatic, subconscious level.
- Intensity: Training is delivered at a rapid pace with techniques that create and maintain a high level of intensity. Clients are pushed past their comfort zone to more challenging but achievable levels. They progress fast enough to see and enjoy the growth in their own ability, but not so fast that they become frustrated and discouraged.
