Research on Ways to Improve Your Child’s Brain
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – One-on-one brain training company LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) is sharing scientific evidence that children’s brain function can improve. Here are some highlights from the article, “There’s Hope! 10 Pieces of Research to Show Your Child’s Brain Function Can Improve”:
1. IQ can change.
A first of its kind study published in The Journal of Applied Cognitive Psychology has found a one-on-one cognitive training program improved cognitive skills and IQ scores by 21 points in students ages 8 to 14. The ThinkRx® training program, created by leading researchers and experts at LearningRx, significantly improved an average IQ and seven cognitive skills: associative memory, working memory, long-term memory, visual, processing, auditory processing, logic and reasoning and processing speed.
2. ADHD is rooted in clusters of weak brain skills.
A new report explains that learning struggles are rooted in clusters of weak cognitive skills. About 30% of clients were diagnosed with ADHD before enrolling in LearningRx. Most of those students, in addition to weak broad attention skills, had weak long-term memory, processing speed and working memory. But cognitive skills can be targeted with personal brain training, which incorporates immediate feedback, intensity and loading, among other features, to train those weak skills. Over a six-year period, 5,416 children and adults (mean age 12.3) diagnosed with ADHD went through LearningRx programs. The cognitive performance of these clients was measured before and after brain training, and the largest gains were seen in IQ, auditory processing, long-term memory and broad attention. After LearningRx brain training, IQ scores improved by an average of 15 standard points, and broad attention skills improved an average of 24 percentile points.
3. Personal brain training boosted state reading achievement test scores.
A study of LearningRx’s ReadRx personal brain training program results found that after training, the group of students made statistically significant gains on tests of Word Attack, Spelling Sounds, Sound Awareness and Passage Comprehension. Additionally, 91% of students who completed the ReadRx program showed improvement on state reading achievement tests. For the group of 65 students in the study, the mean gain across reading achievement tests was 3.6 years. Prior to training, the mean percentile for the group was 33. After training, the group jumped to the 47thpercentile in reading.
