Primary purpose treatment
Arm
(Experimental)
The intervention is a 60-hour one-on-one cognitive training program
learningrx cognitive training ThinkRx
A clinician will deliver forty 90-minute cognitive training sessions over 12-14 weeks for a total of 60 training hours. There are 23 different categories of training procedures sequenced in intensity and difficulty for a total of more than 1000 training tasks.
(No Intervention)
The treatment-as-usual control group will begin the intervention when the experimental arm has completed the intervention.

Additional Information

Official title A Randomized, Controlled Study on the Effects of LearningRx Brain Training for Improving Cognitive Skills in Students Ages 8-14
Principal investigator Dick M Carpenter, PhD
Description In a two-phase randomized controlled study, investigators will examine the effects of a one-on-one cognitive training program on memory, visual and auditory processing, processing speed, reasoning, attention, and General Intellectual Ability (GIA) score for students ages 8-14. In Phase 1, participants will be randomly assigned to either an experimental group to complete 60 hours of one-on-one cognitive training or to a wait-list control group. In Phase 2, the wait-list control group will complete the intervention using an alternative delivery model: 50% clinician delivered and 50% digital delivery.
