How ComprehendRx Works
Clients work one-on-one with LearningRx brain trainers doing game-like exercises that are fun and fast-paced. Every session is customized to maintain the fun but increase the intensity of these exercises. In other words, clients still enjoy the program throughout but are encouraged to keep pushing themselves, stretching their abilities and facing new, exciting challenges with every session.
