Colorado Springs, CO --(PR.com)-- Entrepreneur has released its 31st Annual franchise lists and LearningRx has not only made the Franchise 500, but also topped the Child Enrichment category.
Ranking no. 1 in Child Enrichment and No. 299 on the Franchise 500, the honors are accolades in a long list for the growing franchise, which specializes in cognitive skills therapy or "brain training." The Colorado-based company had previously been named as one of the fastest growing franchise systems by Franchise Times, and for two years in a row was named one of the "Top 100 Franchises" by Franchise Market Magazine.
"Brain research is a hot topic right now, especially with so many soldiers coming home with traumatic brain injuries," said Dr. Ken Gibson, founder and CEO of LearningRx. "We've been working with these brave men and women and seeing incredible results. LearningRx is at the forefront of brain training and there's tremendous potential to help people of all ages; from kids with learning disabilities to aging seniors who are worried about cognitive decline."
The recent ranking in Entrepreneur confirms industry speculation that "brain training" holds incredible potential for both educational/mental development and financial gain. Anjan Chatterjee of Popular Science even says "Prospecting for better brains may be the new gold rush."
"LearningRx has 60 centers across the United states and more in the works," said Dr. Gibson. "There's an ever-growing need for cognitive skills training in our country and beyond. We've developed a successful program that allows us to fill a niche and help our participants become better learners."
LearningRx specializes in identifying and correcting the underlying cognitive skill deficiencies that keep people from achieving their full potential in school, business or life. The program was pioneered by Dr. Ken Gibson and refined over a decade of research and testing. Using a comprehensive skills assessment test and intensive one-on-one training, certified trainers quickly and effectively enhance weak cognitive skills such as attention, memory, processing speed, and problem solving. Students completing the program usually see three to four years of improvement in as little as 12 to 24 weeks and benefit from improved confidence, self-esteem and overall achievement. The company guarantees improvement for all people with deficiencies who complete the training.
