COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., June 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A survey of parents of 226 school-age children who had been previously identified as having oppositional behavior and academic difficulties, found that many reported significant improvements in behavior and academics following LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) personal brain training. 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/.
The study consisted of three groups: 77 students who completed 60 hours of ThinkRx cognitive training; 69 students who completed 120 hours of ReadRx cognitive training, and a control group of 80 students who didn't undergo any training. The results showed:
- Both treatment groups saw a reduction in academic difficulty
- The control group saw an increase in academic difficulty
- Both treatment groups improved on ratings of oppositional behavior
- The control group's ratings of oppositional behavior worsened

"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)."
