It’s never too late to take action to work on weak cognitive skills.

CAN LearningRx HELP YOUR CHILD?

The First Step is to pinpoint cognitive strengths and weaknesses, and measure them against the clinical norms.  Be careful though, an assessment can cost you thousands of dollars, and give you no answers, or it can be free but not normed in a clinical settings, and be a proprietary test.

An assessment at one of our centers by a Licensed Diagnostician is only $249.  We use nationally recognized normed tests to get to the bottom of your learning struggles.  It takes about an hour, and it includes a consultation with a center director who can help you formulate a plan to overcome those cognitive weaknesses.

Let us know you are interested, and we'll contact you today to schedule your assessment, and answer any questions you have about cognitive training.

Cognitive Assessment Results by Client-Reported Diagnosis

Dyslexia (Cognitive Results)
Program: All

Number of Clients: 2,112

Mean Age: 11.9

 

Results:

The following charts show the improvements in cognitive skills for clients who came to learningrx with a diagnosis of dyslexia between 2010 and 2015. The changes in standard scores on the Woodcock-Johnson III – Tests of Cognitive Abilities were statistically significant for all skills (p< .001) assessed. Overall, the largest gains were seen in auditory processing and long-term memory, followed by logic & reasoning and broad attention. The average pre-test IQ score was 93 and the average post-test iq score was 106. In addition, post-training percentiles are within the range of normal functioning, and the average age-equivalent gain in cognitive skill performance was 3.6 years.

Cognitive Assessment Results by Client-Reported Diagnosis

Dyslexia refers to a reading disorder in which reading is difficult despite normal intelligence. Children and adults who struggle with dyslexia can experience problems spelling and writing words, “sounding out” words, reading quickly, reading aloud, and/or understanding what’s been read.

Dyslexia is considered a cognitive disorder, and is often linked with cognitive weakness, particularly in the area of auditory processing.

Auditory processing has been described as “what the brain does with what the ears hear.” Weak auditory processing skills hinder the brain’s ability to recognize the difference between sounds, blend sounds, and link sounds to letters, making learning to read—and reading—more difficult.

Scientists are still researching dyslexia to better understand the diagnosis. In one study, neuroscience student Emily Finn and her colleagues at the Yale University School of Medicine conducted a whole-brain functional connectivity analysis of dyslexia using functional magnetic resonance imaging. Scans of children and adults with dyslexia were compared to typical readers in the same age groups and the results, as reported inBiological Psychiatry, showed that there were widespread differences. Dyslexic readers showed decreased connectivity within their visual pathways, as well as between visual and pre-frontal regions. Dyslexia readers also showed reduced connectivity in the visual word-form area.

Someone diagnosed with dyslexia may benefit from intensive one-on-one attention. Some families turn to brain training to identify, target, and train cognitive weaknesses commonly associated with dyslexia.

You or your child may or may not see improvements in cognitive skills after LearningRx brain training programs.

If you have a child who is struggling with reading, there are some things you can do help your child improve skills that are critical to reading success. For example, to work on phonemic awareness and auditory processing skills, try these exercises:

Sound segmenting games: Say a two-sound word, like bee, and have the child tell you which sounds are in the word. Then start to increase to three-sound words, like cat. This builds auditory segmenting which is necessary for spelling when children get older.

Phonetics using building blocks: Help develop analytical skills by using blocks to make up nonsense words starting with two to three blocks. Create a nonsense word, then have the child remove one block and add a new one while verbally trying to figure out what the new word sounds like.

It is also important to have your child cognitively assessed. A cognitive test is the best way to identify weak skills that may be affecting a child’s ability to process sounds and/or read. LearningRx Brain Training Centers offer comprehensive cognitive testing at a reasonable price.

An Assessment identifies your child’s strong and weak cognitive skills, then compares the to the skill results of other children his age.
