LearningRx vs. Brain Balance

These questionnaires, taken from each company’s website, can give parents a good idea of who it is that LearningRx Brain Training Centers and Brain Balance Achievement Centers aims to help in their programs. While both programs have worked with individuals with various diagnoses and concerns, there is a marked difference between their approach.
If your child is struggling to learn, remember, or pay attention, then a cognitive skills program that is designed to train those weak skills could be of great benefit. If your child is struggling with reading, math, or another school subject, research shows that an underlying cognitive skill weakness may be to blame. Brain training with a LearningRx trainer can improve weak cognitive skills and can help your child think faster, remember more, and perform better. If you have a child who struggled with gross motor development—things like learning to crawl, ride a bike, or tie their shoes, then a sensory motor integration program may be a good option to improve those crucial developmental skills. Similarly, if you notice a sensory issue, such as discomfort with foods or clothing, sensory motor integration may help.
LearningRx vs. Brain Balance Results
Because results are so important to parents and families, LearningRx pre- and post-tests each student who completes a one-on-one brain training program. Across 17,998 students, the average IQ increase is 15 points and for reading students, the average reading gain is more than three years in as little as six months. LearningRx has worked with children and adults with:
• reading/dyslexia/auditory processing disorders
• struggling students
• learning disabilities
• speech and language disorders
• autism spectrum disorders
• traumatic brain injury
• senior adults/adults with mild cognitive impairment
Within the “Client Outcomes and Research Results” report, you can see additional information on LearningRx clients’ results, and view outcomes by subgroup. Beyond the statistics, LearningRx also has thousands of testimonials from happy clients and their families.
On the other hand, Brain Balance lists only their clients’ testimonials as evidence of their results. While a personal story is often very touching and convincing, Brain Balance does not share scientific evidence of their results online (through test results, peer-reviewed articles, and randomized controlled trials).
