Brain Injury Training
Cognitive Skill Services and TBI Training
Many victims of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) experience changes in cognitive performance, leaving victims and their families struggling with what to do next. While LearningRx doesn’t diagnose or treat TBI, our programs have aided the cognitive performance of clients with many diagnoses, including TBI. We are a one-on-one brain training center that puts clients with their own brain trainers for challenging mental workouts consisting of game-like exercises. Watch how one-on-one brain training helped one TBI victim get his old job, life, and brain back!
Our Results Show
At LearningRx, we are driven to deliver results. In one case study, a 34-year-old client, suffering effects from an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blast in Iraq, experienced dramatic cognitive gains after just 18 weeks of training.
Cognitive skills are the fundamental tools the brain uses to perform mental tasks, including learning, reading, remembering, and paying attention. LearningRx has worked with hundreds of clients with impaired cognitive performance due to a brain injury, and the improvements in abilities are often dramatic.
Improvements for Kids & Adults with Traumatic Brain Injury
Over a six-year period, 273 children and adults came to LearningRx diagnosed with TBIs. We measured the cognitive skills of these clients before and after brain training. Here’s what we discovered:
- Among 273 clients with TBI, the most dramatic improvements were seen in long-term memory, IQ score, auditory processing, and broad attention.
- Long-term memory skills improved an average of 4.1 years following LearningRx brain training.
- IQ scores improved by an average of 10 standard points after LearningRx brain training.
Here’s what these improvements look like on a graph:

What Causes TBI?
According to the Mayo Clinic, traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur when one suffers a strong blow to the head or body. If an object hits brain tissue, that can also cause TBI.
What Are the Signs and Symptoms of TBI?
There are many signs and symptoms that people with TBI may display. Some of the more common signs and symptoms include:
- Cognitive struggles (i.e. issues with learning, reading, remembering, thinking clearly, etc.)
- Loss of consciousness
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Struggles with verbal communication
- Struggles with coordination
- Easily irritable
- Mood swings
- More lethargic than normal
Can TBI Be Cured?
The majority of patients with moderate to severe TBI will face long-term or lifelong challenges and symptoms due to their injury.
There is hope for those with TBI, however. Since TBI is primarily a cognitive-based injury, we know that impaired cognitive skills are what hold so many TBI victims back in life after their injury.
At LearningRx, our TBI programs target and strengthen those key brain skills that are causing many of the signs and symptoms you might be seeing.

Can brain training help those with TBI?
While online brain training games are not effective, our intense, one-on-one brain training programs have helped people with TBI, because we address the root cause of cognitive struggles by identifying and strengthening brain skills.
