The first step to a faster, smarter brain is scheduling an assessment.Learning RX graphic for 10092011

Before we can determine the right brain training program for you or someone you love, we need information. We get this information by conducting a professional cognitive skills assessment test at a  LearningRx Brain Training Center near you.

This test enables us to identify specific brain skills weaknesses, then target those weaknesses with a carefully designed series of brain training exercises. The test results also give you what you need to make informed decisions about the value of brain training for you or your family. 

LearningRx Cognitive Skills testing is the most time and cost efficient way of getting the results you need. The professional testing tools we use include the Woodcock Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities (WJ III-COG) and the Woodcock Johnson Tests of Achievement (WJ III-ACH). The WJ III-COG is the gold standard of cognitive skills testing, and is used by psychologists and educators across the country to measure brain skills strengths and weaknesses. Learn more here.
