COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwired - May 23, 2016) -  Personal brain training company LearningRx has completed Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) on cognitive skills and IQ and the results are now available to the public.

Highlights from the report, which presents a national assessment of the training impacts on cognitive skills and on reading and math achievement for nearly 18,000 LearningRx clients between 2010-2015, include:

  • As a group, ThinkRx clients averaged a 17 point gain in IQ score and an 11.4 standard point gain on tests of cognitive skills.
  • As a group, ReadRx clients averaged a 13 point gain in IQ score, a 10.8 standard point gain on tests of cognitive skills.

"LearningRx programs are based on 35 years of research and input from a team of psychologists, educators, speech and language pathologists, and occupational therapists," says Tanya Mitchell, Vice President of Research & Development for LearningRx and co-author of "Unlock the Einstein Inside; Applying New Brain Science to Wake Up the Smart in Your Child." "With 95,000 students having graduated our brain training programs, we have plenty of data for independent researchers to study our unique cognitive training methodology and results. We not only encourage independent research, but we also actively seek it out. We are eager to share our results, and independent research helps validate our work among the scientific community in an industry that is still relatively young, and therefore under constant scrutiny. It's part of the reason we created the Gibson Institute of Cognitive Research."
