LearningRx is the franchised and fully commercialized version of the PACE (Processing and Cognitive Enhancement) brain training product set developed by Dr Ken Gibson. LearningRx/PACE exercises many important cognitive skills like working memory, auditory & visual processing, divided & selective attention, and executive function.
LearningRx repackages the PACE training into the following products: ThinkRx exercises baseline/foundational cognitive skills described above. ReadRx for reading enhancement and comprehension. MathRx for higher level reasoning and math related problem solving skills.
BrainRx is the trade name for Learning Rx franchises outside the United States.
Update May 2016: LearningRx has been fined by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for making a range of false and unsubstantiated claims about the effectiveness of its cognitive training programs.
LearningRx deceptively claimed their brain training programs were clinically proven to permanently improve serious health conditions like ADHD, Autism, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, strokes, and concussions.
Learning Rx Performance Scoring Methodology
LearningRx has a proprietary metric to track user performance, which is based on individual and aggregate scores of the LearningRx training exercises. The individual scores are expressed as number of years/age level (a child is performing at a 10 year old level for a particular cognitive skill as measured by LearningRx, etc). Note that the LearningRx performance metric will *not* be a useful comparison measure outside of the LearningRx environment.
Cost range is $2,500 – $4,000 per program: includes trainer/tutor time. About $10,000 for all three packages with trainer/tutor time.
General cognitive skill improvement for students can also be accomplished at a much lower cost with MindSparke’s Brain Fitness Pro.
