Lynne and Whitney Meyer: Together, they own and operate LearningRx San Antonio Northwest
- Lynne Meyer is a retired reading specialist and administrator for more than 25 years, and her biggest frustration was seeing students who struggled, no matter how much extra support they were given. She took it upon herself to learn about how the brain processed information and discovered that if a student has weak cognitive skills, all the re-teaching she did would only make a small difference.
- While her daughter, Whitney Meyer, was starting her M.A. in Educational Psychology, she discovered LearningRx cognitive training. She became a certified cognitive skills trainer for LearningRx in 2009 and has since helped hundreds of students and their families overcome learning struggles associated with ADHD, dyslexia, learning disabilities, and even traumatic brain injury.

Here Is What One Of Top Industry’s Leading Experts Is Saying About The Results That LearningRx Is Having With Their Autistic Clients
According to Dr. Amy Moore, when a client comes to LearningRx with an autism spectrum diagnosis, the team uses a Brain Skills Assessment to identify which brain skills are weak. Once those skills are identified, they can be targeted with intensive personal brain training. Unlike digital brain games, one-on-one brain training uses customized exercises and incorporates immediate feedback, intensity, and loading, among other features, to work on cognitive skills.
“Cognitive skills, also known as ‘brain skills,’ are the fundamental tools we need to learn, read, remember, and pay attention,” explains Dr. Moore, a cognitive psychologist with LearningRx. “They include attention, auditory processing, logic & reasoning, processing speed, visual processing, and working and long-term memory. Although in some cases, a single weak cognitive skill can cause learning struggles, for people on the autism spectrum, it’s common to see a cluster of weak cognitive skills.”
“Among 1,049 clients who came to LearningRx with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum, the average gain in cognitive skills was 3.2 years,” explains Dr. Moore. “The largest gain was 4.5 years in auditory processing. The mean age of the children, who were between 4 and 17, was 10.7. We also saw improvements in sustained attention, working memory, processing speed, logic & reasoning, visual processing, and long-term memory. In addition to clinical data, LearningRx has gathered anecdotal evidence from parents of children with ASD who explains how personal brain training created improvements in their family members’ lives.”
