LearningRx reviews research on nutrition, one-on-one brain training, and drugs that improved reading.
Colorado Springs, CO, October 21, 2016 (Newswire.com) - LearningRx, the largest one-on-one brain training organization in the world (www.LearningRx.com) is sharing scientific evidence from three new research studies that created significant reading improvements.
ReadRx starts by training weak cognitive skills and then uses a sound to code approach to help those with reading difficulties
Tanya Mitchell, LearningRx VP of Research and Development
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, researchers from Sweden found that children’s reading-including phonologic decoding and visual analysis time-improved when omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids were added to their diet.

ONE-ON-ONE BRAIN TRAINING
A study of LearningRx’s ReadRx personal brain training program results found that after training, the group of students made statistically significant gains on tests of World Attack, Spelling Sounds, Sound Awareness and Passage Comprehension. Additionally, 91% of students who completed the ReadRx program showed improvement on state reading achievement tests. The results have been published in LearningRx’s 48-page 2016 edition of “Client Outcomes and Research Results,” which can be downloaded here: http://www.learningrx.com/our-programs/learningrx-results/.
For the group of 65 students in the study, the mean gain across reading achievement tests was 3.6 years. Prior to training, the mean percentile for the group was 33. After training, the group jumped to the 47th percentile in reading. The study, “Achievement Outcomes for LearningRx Students: Math and Reading Achievement Before and After Cognitive Training” is currently in preparation for publication but can be downloaded here:
A new study has found that giving kids Atomoxetine (brand name: Strattera) improves the critical components of reading, including decoding and vocabulary. The drug is approved for the treatment of ADHD.
