Cognitive Skills Training for Dyslexia Struggles in Texarkana
Enhancing the Lives of Our Clients
Auditory processing is the cognitive skill the brain uses to hear, segment, and blend sounds—and it is foundational to successful reading. In fact, studies show that weak auditory processing skills are at the root of approximately 85% of all reading struggles! This is why interventions that use cognitive training techniques to target and strengthen auditory processing and other cognitive abilities get such tremendous results.
At LearningRx Texarkana, we pair clients with their own brain trainers for one-on-one training that consists of challenging yet fun cognitive exercises. These game-like mental workouts strengthen the skills that are integral to reading comprehension. With a brain training program uniquely adapted for every client, clients of all ages can experience benefits that can enhance their life. Many of our past clients have experienced dramatic results.
Our Reading Struggles & Dyslexia Experience
Over a six-year period, 2,112 children and adults came to LearningRx with dyslexia and/or reading struggles. We measured the cognitive performance of these clients before brain training, and again after brain training, paying special attention to the cognitive skills associated with auditory processing.
Here’s what we’ve learned:
- Among 2,112 clients who came to us with reading struggles and/or dyslexia, the largest gains after LearningRx brain training were seen in auditory processing, IQ score, long-term memory, and broad attention.
- Among these same 2,112 clients, auditory processing skills improved an average of 5.3 years following brain training.
- After just six months of training, age-equivalent cognitive skill performance improved by an average of 3.6 years.
- IQ scores improved by an average of 13 standard points after LearningRx brain training.
Here’s what these improvements look like on a graph:

Angie, a mom of three LearningRx graduates, summarizes their brain training experience and improvements in reading this way: “Tutoring only gets you so far and I feel like LearningRx really unlocks a child’s potential to be the best that they can be.”
Additional Gains Experienced by Families of Dyslexia Clients
To further measure the impact of brain training on real life, LearningRx surveyed parents of 109 kids with dyslexia who completed one of our programs. The experiences of individual clients can vary, but the consistency of reported improvements is definitely worth sharing:
- Many parents reported classroom improvements such as faster reading, improved reading comprehension, and stronger memory for details.
- Almost half of the parents reported better grades after completing brain training, and more than half reported increased confidence in school.
- Parents also reported more positive relationships with peers, more independence in completing homework, and increased participation and better performance in sports.
