Frequently Asked Questions
How Are You Different Than Tutoring?
Tutoring re-teaches information that wasn’t grasped the first time around. Before investing in tutoring, a parent should ask, “Why didn’t my child grasp this the first time it was taught?” Unless the answer is obvious (such as missing school for an extended period of time), tutoring may not be the answer. In fact, studies show that in 8 out of 10 cases, learning struggles are caused by weak cognitive skills, not because information was not presented well and needs to be re-taught. If one or more weak cognitive skills are causing your child’s struggle, tutoring attempts to accommodate that weakness, rather than correct it. BrainRx is radically different. Our testing and training is the answer to a different question. When a student is struggling, we ask “How strong is his or her ability to learn?” We don’t accommodate weak skills, we strengthen them. The result? Faster, easier learning from now on.
Will This Help My Child?
If your child needs help performing in school, the answer is yes. BrainRx is the outgrowth of 40 years of research and clinical trials. LearningRx, the parent company of BrainRx, has employed these brain training methods with more than 30,000 children and adults of all ages in brain training centers throughout the United States. BrainRx is now making this training available to students across the globe. To learn more about results and data related to our brain training programs, click here.
Can You Help Someone with ADD or ADHD?
In many cases, the answer is yes. This is because BrainRx strengthens the cognitive weaknesses that are linked to attention disorders. Neuroscience shows that by targeting and stimulating the underactive region of the brain responsible for the characteristics of inattention, that attention can be strengthened. Attention is strengthened when a person performs a task requiring attention while exposed to structured distractions. BrainRx provides the right stimuli and environment to strengthen not one but three kinds of attention.
How Does the Program Promote Reading Success?
Many students struggle in reading as a result of cognitive weaknesses. For example, a student who has weak auditory processing skills, cannot concentrate, works too slowly, has poor memory skills or struggles to create good mental images will struggle with reading. By addressing these weaknesses, students are given the skills they need to become successful readers.
