COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A 2016 survey of 109 parents whose children had been previously diagnosed with dyslexia and later completed a LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) personal brain training program, found that many of their pre-training complaints regarding academics—especially reading—were addressed. The results of "Mixed Methods Study of LearningRx Results for Students with Dyslexia" 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/.
Specifically, regarding their child's school-related improvements, the parents responded that:
- 59% read faster
- 56% completed homework more independently
- 53% remembered details from reading
- 52% understood what was read
- 46% achieved better grades
- 38% paid attention longer
In addition, one-third of respondents said their child was "eager to read" after going through LearningRx one-on-one brain training. Many parents also reported significant improvements in family and social relationships.
"LearningRx programs are based on 35 years of research and input from a team of psychologists, educators, speech and language pathologists, and occupational therapists," says Tanya Mitchell, Vice President of Research & Development for LearningRx. "With 95,000 students having graduated our brain training programs, we have plenty of data for independent researchers to study our unique cognitive training methodology and results. We not only encourage independent research, but we also actively seek it out. We are eager to share our results, and independent research helps validate our work among the scientific community in an industry that is still relatively young, and therefore under constant scrutiny. It's part of the reason we created the Gibson Institute of Cognitive Research (www.gibsonresearchinstitute.org)."
