Ripoff Report Verified™ REVIEW:
EDITOR’S UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to LearningRx for its commitment to excellence in customer service.
Ripoff Report’s research indicates that LearningRx is committed to integrity in all areas of business and client relations, and has procedures and policies in place to assure that clients receive the best possible service and care. LearningRx has more than 90 brain training centers nationwide and provides brain training to thousands of clients every year. Complaints are rare but when one does arise, the company makes every reasonable effort to resolve the issue related to that complaint. LearningRx corporate management takes client feedback and satisfaction ratings seriously, and is always seeking to make improvements to the quality of their product and to customer care.
Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that LearningRx has a longstanding commitment to integrity in business, and to excellence in client satisfaction. Based on client satisfaction surveys, LearningRx receives an average customer satisfaction rating of 9.5, which is well above the national average. The company states: “One of our very intentional goals as a company is to ‘WOW’ our customers. Every year, we receive thousands of written and video testimonies from clients who are thrilled with the life-changing results they’ve experienced because of brain training at LearningRx (you can read some of these real-life stories here or watch some of our video testimonials at www.learningrxvideo.com). The stories shared by our students and their families are a powerful indicator of the value of the programs we offer. We also take the time to measure the satisfaction of each and every LearningRx client. The Satisfaction Rating asks clients, ‘On a scale of 0 to 10 (10 being highest), how likely are you to recommend LearningRx to a friend or colleague?’ Our most recent satisfaction rating, based on over 4,800 customers, was 9.54 out of 10. This is nearly 20% higher than the national average.”
The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Tanya Mitchell during an on-site inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Learning RX.
Learning RX is a company that specializes in Brain Training, a 30-year old, research-based training program for students who are struggling in the areas of reading and math, or for adults who have experienced brain trauma. Leads are acquired through a number of resources, with approximately 35% coming from parents/referrals, as well as events, workshops, mailings and internet searches. “A survey of 4,000 students over a year’s time [determined that] 9.54 out of 10 would give a referral,” states Tanya Mitchell, a representative of Learning RX.
A typical customer experience starts with the potential customer contacting Learning RX for assistance in performance, whether it’s in school or at work. At that point, the customer is then given the Woodcock Johnson Test, which tests 7 different areas to determine if there is room for improvement. A consultation is then scheduled between Learning RX and the customer/parent to discuss expectations, specific needs, and determine if Learning RX can help.
LEARNINGRX / CUSTOMER SERVICE & CARE
Some common complaints Learning RX has received relate to miscommunication of what the expectation of the parents are and what the program actually offers. “Parents put high expectations on the test. Testing is just one tool to assess a student,” states Ms. Mitchell. “We reach out to the parents to find out where the miscommunication was, and credits and refunds have been given on a case by case basis.” After receiving complaints such as these, if the parents are not happy with the training, then the training is stopped. The team at Learning RX then sit down to discuss the issue with the parent, and look at the possibility of adapting the program to better fit the student’s needs. “We strive for satisfaction with each client. Parents are not stuck with us. Also, we have seen that clients come back to us and finish out the training at a later time,” states Ms. Mitchell.
Learning RX consistently monitors their internal processes to ensure that they are doing what they can to best assist the students. They also disclose information regarding their refund policy to each customer during the initial consultation. “Each concern or complaint is taken very seriously. We recognize this program may not be the right fit for everyone. We correct any issues that improve our processes and communication,” states Ms. Mitchell. In response to the multiple complaints posted to Ripoff Report referring to customers who felt they did not receive accurate information during the initial sale of the program, Ms. Mitchell states, “Testing is a tool among many tools. It is only a snapshot of the child. What the client sees in real life far outweighs what we see in any test results. If a test result is way off, we are going to go with the parent’s insight.”
After a complaint is resolved, the Director of Learning RX follows up with the client to ensure the issue was resolved to their satisfaction. Since receiving complaints through Ripoff Report, the team at Learning RX has reviewed each individual complaint to determine what actually happened and each franchise has then reached out to the customer. “After doing our own research, we have reached out to each and every client by email or phone. The comments [made on Ripoff Report] are blatantly false and untrue. We strive to exceed all of our client’s expectations,” states Ms. Mitchell. Learning RX is continually striving to improve their service by consulting with the Better Business Bureau and the National Leaders in Customer Service.
Learning RX recognizes the value of working with Ripoff Report and the Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction program, and the platform it provides for businesses and customers to communicate. “As educators [and] professionals, we strive to help people live better lives. When we have the opportunity to correct a misconception because of a bad review, we do,” states Ms. Mitchell.
LEARNINGRX / Statements from founder Ken Gibson
"I struggled to read all through my school years. Back then, so little was known about the causes behind learning and reading struggles that I was essentially on my own.
Today, I would be labeled dyslexic. Many of my other cognitive skills were strong. I could (and often did) study 5 minutes before spelling tests and score 100%, but then would misspell those same words later on my written assignments.
I had an undiagnosed cognitive skill weakness that made it difficult for me to distinguish sounds and sound out words. These weaknesses made school far more difficult than it needed to be, but I compensated for my weaknesses, worked excessively hard, and persevered through to a professional graduate program.
When I began my professional career I learned that I wasn't unique in my reading struggles. Thousands of others struggled to learn and read. That motivated me to co-create the cognitive skills programs that form the foundation of LearningRx today.
Each positive result fueled our team's motivation to help more children achieve or surpass the academic level of their peers. This passion burns in me as strong today as ever! The excitement I experience seeing our brain training programs impact lives every day continues to fuel that passion.
With the continuing advancements in research and new training available from our centers all across the country, enduring the struggles that I endured as a child, accepting labels like dyslexic or ADHD, settling for low learning potential, or compensating for learning weaknesses is simply no longer necessary. Parents now have options that work.
I invite you to take a look at what LearningRx offers and contact us. I am excited, and certain that we can help.”
LEARNINGRX HELPING PARENTS
We change lives through brain training. At the root of LearningRx's success is a brain training program that has unmatched power to unlock learning potential by effectively addressing the cause behind learning and reading struggles. That cause is unseen cognitive skill weaknesses. The essence of LearningRx is best reflected in the real improvements of our students. Here is one mom's story about her 11-year-old daughter:
"We came to LearningRx because our daughter was having trouble in school. She was scoring at low levels on the national benchmark tests and her teacher had decided she could not do the work. We could tell that as time went by she was beginning to believe that she was not as smart as others and was not trying anymore. Looking back at the past few months we can see such a transition. Our daughter can now read out loud with confidence, she is getting A's and B's and her 5th grade teacher says 'You know, I just don't see what the 4th grade teacher saw! She is good at math, confident in school, and a leader in her class!'"
< br> "We are a family of caring professionals armed with the right training and tools to make a difference for parents and students. LearningRx is the answer to the heart-cry of thousands of parents of struggling students—parents who fear that their children are on the verge of being defined by discouragement, failure, and a lifetime of lost opportunity. No other solution—no matter the cost—has the power to so dramatically change all the ways a student lives and learns. The reason? We address the cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.
Parents who are looking for help for their child find a friend in LearningRx. Our unique focus on identifying and training individual cognitive skills weaknesses sets us apart from tutoring and other remedial education programs. We provide affordable testing that is available at a fraction of the cost of what other professionals charge.
Only at LearningRx do we focus on changing a student's underlying ability to learn and read. We train and strengthen cognitive skills with scientifically based and clinically proven one-on-one personalized training. You and your child are no longer limited to treating symptoms. With LearningRx training you can literally change how he or she learns and, in doing so, change the future.
LearningRx brain training centers serve a wide variety of adult needs as well. Brain training provides proven tools to help those looking for all types of skills enhancement. Career adults can gain a significant competitive edge. College students can leverage both class and study time. Senior adults can forestall or even reverse age-related mental and memory decline. Those facing the need for recovery of mental skills lost due to a traumatic brain injury see dramatic progress in a short amount of time."
PROVEN COMMITMENTS FROM LEARNINGRX.
LearningRx provides brain training that improves cognitive skills to enhance learning ability. Thousands of kids & their parents have experienced the life-changing benefits of the LearningRx program since 2003.
LearningRx is committed to enriching lives through one-on-one brain training, and has a proven track record of service to families seeking lasting improvements in cognitive performance.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Learning RX to help our son with his learning disability Centennial Colorado
Let me start by saying, I have thought about this for several months before I decided to file a report. The reason, I have decided to go ahead with this, is for the parents out there that have children with learning disabilities. I would not want anyone to go through the pain and heartache we did with Learning RX. I have told everyone I come into contact with our story and hopefully they are telling everyone they know. Then I was information of this site and thought it might help more people if we told our story. My husband and I were at our lowest point of desperation to try to help our son. My husband and I looked into several learning centers to try to help our 11 year old son who struggles with learning disabilities. One of these centers just happened to be Learning RX, I was very up front with the person who was trying to "sell us". We had told her that our son had been tested by many and had been in special education at his schools for 3 years now. She did all she could to insure us that it was not an issue. After several meetings we decide to try to take out a loan for their services. We got the loan, went in and singed the papers and set up a time to start the program. One of my first concerns was, when we went in for that, the person who sold us didn't even work their any longer. The program we bought into was a 24 week program and it had 24 levels to it. The first half of the program went fairly well, after about the 12th week we hit a wall, my son was not improving at all at this point, he had only gone six levels. My husband had a meeting with them to let them know that we had some real concerns. They assured us that the second half of the program he would progress through the program much quicker and we would see a big difference. Again playing on our desperation to help our son. We continued for about another 5 weeks and our son was still on level six, he had not moved one level in this time frame. We called another meeting and they said they would have their Director of Training work with Tyler for a week, still no improvement. They kept assuring us we not only would see a difference but that the main thing was our son, the main thing ended up being money. At this point we stopped bring our son in as it was having a negative effect on him at this point. After several conversation with the new sale person, they agreed to refund us 2,000 dollars of the 5,995 we had paid, even though he had only moved six levels and I have a paper stated we would get 2/3 of that back if he did not test higher. I did send an email to the new sales person letting him know I had this paper and got no response. Although he did not test out of the program we all know he had only minimal improvement through the program. I would have paid all the money in the world to help my son but paying almost 4,000 dollars to go six levels seems a bit expensive to me. The only thing that was a positive experience with Learning RX is the trainer that was assigned to our son. He might not have been able to really help our son but he worked very hard with us and really cared about our son, for this I would like to thank Ryan. I'm not sure what our next step will be but we are seriously thinking going to the Better Business Bureau. Denise Englewood, Colorado
