LearningRx Offers Discounted Cognitive Skills Assessments for Autism Awareness Month

Personal brain training company offers half off brain skills assessments throughout April

(Colorado Springs, CO), April 1, 2016 – In honor of April being National Autism Awareness Month, personal brain training company LearningRx is offering discounted cognitive skills assessments to children, teens and adults on the autism spectrum.

The assessment identifies which brain skills are weak. Cognitive skills are the foundational tools we use to think, learn and remember; they include logic & reasoning, auditory and visual processing, memory, attention and processing speed.

Once the weak brain skills are identified, they can be targeted with intensive one-on-one brain training. Unlike digital brain games, personalized brain training uses customized exercises and incorporates immediate feedback, intensity, and loading, among other features, to work on brain skills.

“Although our personal brain training addresses all cognitive skills, we tailor each program to meet the needs of the individual,” says Tanya Mitchell, VP of Research & Development for LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com). “Because the autism spectrum covers a wide range of deficits and functions, it’s vital that we create a unique program to match the student’s needs and skill sets.”

In a study of 300 autistic students who participated in LearningRx cognitive remediation programs for an average of 15.4 weeks, there was an average gain of 12.3 IQ points (as measured using the Woodcock-Johnson III Tests of Cognitive Abilities) and 3.1 years in reading ability.
