About Us

One-On-One Brain Training

Are you or someone you love struggling to keep up in school, work, or life? At our center, we use personal brain trainers and fun, mental exercise to work on core cognitive skills, which are the skills the brain uses to think, read, learn, remember, and pay attention. If you visit our center, I would love to show you the powerful testing and training methods we use to help struggling students (as well as children and adults of all ages) in the Green Bay and Appleton area.

Why not find out what LearningRx can do for you or someone you love? The first step is scheduling a Cognitive Skills Assessment to discover if any weak cognitive skills might be making life harder than it needs to be. Call us today to get started!

How We Can Help You

LearningRx works with struggling students and even adults, training the cognitive skills the brain uses to read, remember, learn, and pay attention.

Many struggles with learning, reading, memory, and attention are caused by weak cognitive skills. At LearningRx, we identify weak skills using a comprehensive Cognitive Assessment, and then we target and train those skills by pairing clients with personal brain trainers for fun, challenging exercises for the brain. We call it brain training. Our clients call it life changing.

To see a snapshot of the cognitive abilities of a child or adult who is struggling to learn or read, take our Learning Skills Discovery Survey. It’s a short, 3-minute questionnaire you can take for yourself (or for someone else) that can give you insights regarding the cause of the struggle.

 

LearningRx FAQ

How is LearningRx brain training different from online brain training games?
The difference is in our unique personal trainer approach. The face-to-face nature of the training relationship allows LearningRx brain trainers to do three critical things:

focus on results by customizing each training session and encouraging clients to work past their comfort levels.
focus on attitude by challenging clients to recognize and pursue their potential, learning to see failure not as something to be avoided at all costs, but as a temporary stepping stone to greater success.
focus on confidence by encouraging struggling children and adults to engage, embrace challenges, recognize improvements, and celebrate gains.

Is brain training similar to tutoring?
Not at all. While both are effective, brain training and tutoring are actually different solutions to different problems.

From kindergarten through grad school, students typically struggle because of one of two problems:

New information wasn’t grasped because it was presented poorly (or missed entirely)

Weak cognitive skills are making it hard to grasp new information (even when it is presented well)

Tutoring works on the first problem; LearningRx brain training works on the second. There are definitely times to hire a tutor. For example, if your child didn’t learn classroom content because he or she was home with the flu, because a teacher on maternity leave was replaced by a string of substitutes, or because construction workers nearby were operating jackhammers all month long, hire a tutor. In other words, if identifiable circumstances have interfered with the delivery of information to your child, hiring someone to redeliver that information makes sense

There are also times to hire a one-on-one brain trainer. For example, if your child is struggling in school in general—struggling in more than one class, or struggling over the course of several school years— help from a brain trainer can make a real difference. This is because brain training targets the cognitive weaknesses that are keeping your child from repeatedly grasping new information when it’s presented in class.

Will my child outgrow his or her learning struggle?
Not necessarily. Children and teens (and even adults) who struggle do so for a reason, and the reason may be weak cognitive skills. As your child is maturing, weak cognitive skills may not catch up (which is why adults can struggle with weak cognitive skills, too). Perhaps a better question is, while your child is struggling, how are those struggles impacting his or her self-image? Confidence? Love of learning? Whatever stage of education or life you or your child are in, it’s never too soon to take action to work on weak cognitive skills.

What causes reading struggles?
Most reading struggles are due to a weakness in auditory processing. This is the cognitive skill that allows us to identify, segment, and blend sounds. But other weak skills can interfere with reading, too. For example, poor attention skills can mean a reader is frequently distracted, poor memory skills can interfere with recall, and poor visual processing skills can keep a reader from creating the mental pictures that help them comprehend and engage with what they just read. LearningRx brain training works on each of these weaknesses.

Is brain training just for students?
Not at all. Because cognitive weaknesses are not necessarily strengthened by time, children who struggle with reading, learning, reasoning, remembering, or paying attention often grow into adults with the same struggles. Many of our clients are, in fact, adults of all ages and stages of life, from the college-bound, to career builders, to seniors.

Our Programs

We offer a variety of programs that target specific cognitive weaknesses.

At LearningRx, we offer a variety of programs to meet the needs of our clients. Here’s a short description of each:

ThinkRx is our core program. Offered over a minimum of 12 weeks, this program works on all the core cognitive skills. Every client who is over seven years of age and in a full program trains with ThinkRx.

ReadRx incorporates ThinkRx with ReadRx. A powerful reading intervention, ReadRx trains the cognitive skills of auditory processing, as well as other skills that are critical to reading success.

ComprehendRx takes reading intervention to a new level, focusing on the cognitive skills that are critical for reading comprehension. This program works on many cognitive skills, including visual processing, reasoning skills, sequential processing, working memory, and metacognitive strategies.

MathRx trains the cognitive skills needed to efficiently and effectively develop numerical fluency, learn math concepts, solve problems, and perform calculations.

Einstein includes ThinkRx, ReadRx, and MathRx.

LiftOff is available to preschoolers through first graders and works on the foundational cognitive skills and early reading skills so important for early learners. These include auditory processing, attention, memory, processing speed, visual processing, and reasoning.

StudyRx helps clients develop stronger study skills. The program teaches clients 14 test-taking tips, 12 top learning strategies, as well as eight core study skills based on fictionalized stories of historical figures and the habits, skills, and perspectives that contributed to their success. StudyRx is currently being piloted in a few of our centers, and will soon be released across the LearningRx system.

Brain Booster
programs are offered in two formats. The first is for adults who do not have a need for a full program, and instead are interested in doing mental exercises with a trainer at their own convenience. The Brain Booster program for adults is offered in 12, 18, or 24-session segments. Brain Booster is also offered to clients who have completed one of our other full programs and are interested in additional one-on-one training.

BrainSkills is a digital brain training program that can be used to supplement the one-on-one training that is the cornerstone of all of our programs, or as a maintenance program for those who have completed one of our full one-on-one programs.
