Enhancing the Lives of Our Clients
Auditory processing is the cognitive skill the brain uses to hear, segment, and blend sounds—and it is foundational to successful reading. In fact, studies show that weak auditory processing skills are at the root of approximately 85% of all reading struggles! This is why interventions that use cognitive training techniques to target and strengthen auditory processing and other cognitive abilities get such tremendous results.
At Metro Learning Solutions, clients are engaged in one-on-one training that consists of challenging yet fun cognitive exercises. These game-like mental workouts strengthen the skills that are integral to reading and reading comprehension. With a brain training program uniquely adapted for every client, clients of all ages can experience benefits that can enhance their life. Many of our past clients have experienced dramatic results.
Our Reading Struggles & Dyslexia Experience
Over a six-year period, 2,112 children and adults came to LearningRx (Metro Learning Solutions) with dyslexia and/or reading struggles. We measured the cognitive performance of these clients before brain training, and again after brain training, paying special attention to the cognitive skills associated with auditory processing.
Here’s what we’ve learned:
- Among 2,112 clients who came to us with reading struggles and/or dyslexia, the largest gains after brain training were seen in auditory processing, IQ score, long-term memory, and broad attention.
- Among these same 2,112 clients, auditory processing skills improved an average of 5.3 years following brain training.
- After just six months of training, age-equivalent cognitive skill performance improved by an average of 3.6 years.
- IQ scores improved by an average of 13 standard points after brain training.
Here’s what these improvements look like on a graph*:
