BrainRx is both a pioneer and leader in the field of cognitive training.
BrainRx is our core cognitive brain skills development program.
Offered on a one-on-one basis with an Internationally Certified BrainRx Cognitive Trainer, this non-invasive program works on all the core cognitive skills for struggling, average and advanced students of all ages (age six to ninety-six).
Struggles with reading, memory, attention, and learning are typically caused by weak cognitive skills - a condition common in children and adults that’s often overlooked. Our unique programs target and strengthen those weak skills.
This means the way you think, learn, read, pay attention - even your IQ - is not set in stone, but can be changed and improved.
All it takes, is 3 easy steps:
We begin with a baseline Cognitive Test to identify which of your cognitive skills may be showing signs of weakness. During the COVID-19 period, the test can be done online from your home or office. The test is used in more than 46 countries around the world and available in 23 languages, including English and Afrikaans.
The Gibson Test of Cognitive Skills scientifically measures the performance of the following key cognitive skills:
• Long-term Memory
• Working Memory
• Processing Speed
• Auditory Processing
• Visual Processing
• Logic & Reasoning
• Word Attack skills (not a cognitive skill but essential for fluent reading)
Your test includes a detailed feedback consultation to provide you with your test results and options.
The report you will receive following the completion of the test will give you a detailed look at individual cognitive strengths and weaknesses in each of the cognitive areas. It will also be our guideline for a specific program recommendation.
When you sign up for one of our cognitive development programs, we partner you with a dedicated Cognitive Trainer who guides you through intense but fun brain building exercises. The 1-on-1 training is done remotely during the COVID-19 period, via Skype or Zoom from the comfort of your home or office.

Skills strengthened by BrainRx:
Some of the skills we strengthen include the following:
Attention (Selective, Divided and Sustained Attention) The ability to stay on task even when distractions are present.
Simultaneous Processing The ability to handle more than one thing at a time (i.e., the ability to recognize a word without sounding it out, listen to the instructor while taking notes, or to drive a car while carrying on a conversation).
Sequential Processing The ability to link a series of input over time. This is a skill required for reading so that the beginner can blend a series of sounds to create words and the advanced reader can link a series of words in order to understand the story or idea.
Planning The ability to decide how you are going to solve a problem, make sure it gets done, check it for mistakes, and modify it if needed.
Processing Speed The ability to perform cognitive tasks quickly which is an important skill for complex tasks or tasks that have many steps (i.e. if you are dividing two numbers in your head but the processing is slow, you might have forgotten an earlier calculation before you are done and have to start all over again. You took longer to do the problem than your ability to remember).
Short-Term Memory The ability to store and recall small amounts of information about the current situation. Students with short-term memory problems may need to look several times at something before copying, have problems following instructions, or need to have information repeated often.
Long-Term Memory The ability to recall information when needed that was stored in the past. This is very important for spelling, recalling facts on tests & exams, and comprehension.
Auditory Processing The ability to perceive, analyze, and conceptualize what is heard. This is critical in reading and spelling because it includes hearing, identifying and blending sounds, and sounding out words.
Visual Processing The ability to perceive, analyze, and think in visual images. This includes visualization, which is the ability to create a picture in your mind. Students who have problems with visual processing may reverse letters or have difficulty following instructions, reading maps, doing word math problems, and comprehension.
Logic & Reasoning Enables you to reason, form ideas, and solve problems. Plays an important role in the ability to transfer knowledge/information.
