At the very root of reading success- or reading struggle- is an underlying brain skill called auditory processing. In fact, auditory processing is so critical for reading that, according to the Department of Education (USA), weakness in this single cognitive skill accounts for more than 88% of a nations reading problems. This is the skill used to identify and segment sounds, which are critical for reading success.
Neuroscience has proven that through harnessing the brain’s plasticity with a series of intense mental exercises, we can strengthen existing neural connections and even create new ones.
ReadRx is an intensive sound-to-code reading and spelling intervention for ages six to adult. ReadRx includes all BrainRx procedures, auditory processing training, plus basic and complex code reading training. The first half of this program focuses on what we found to be the common weak skills in struggling readers including long- and short-term memory, processing speed, and auditory processing. The second half builds on that foundation with reading and spelling skills.
