Dr. Ken Gibson has held a lifelong passion for helping struggling students learn faster and easier. He started his professional career as a pediatric vision specialist before discovering that brain training provided the greatest gains for students who were struggling to read or learn. Dr. Gibson spent the next several decades developing programs to measure and train core cognitive skills, in the process training more than 1,000 professionals in education and psychology to use his techniques. In 2002, Dr. Gibson founded LearningRx to make brain training available to more families. Today LearningRx is the largest one-on-one brain training company in the world, with 90 centers across the United States and programs in more than 25 countries.
