History

girl-flyingWhat started as a program with only three cognitive exercises in 1979 has grown to become renowned learning tools used by parents, teachers and in our clinics across the globe. Driven by a quest to perfect these tools, our team has done extensive research on learning, learning principles and brain development over a period of 30+ years. In addition to theoretical research, we have helped thousands of learners overcome learning challenges.

 

School results define our success. Annually, since 2010, we have been requesting Edublox clients, long-term and new, to complete an online survey to help us measure our performance. In our latest survey of 2015 the key question, “Did your child’s academic performance improve at school?” received a 94% positive rating, up from 89% in 2013.

 

Our other 580+ documented successes include research from Singapore in 2014 with 27 Grade 6 learners and a matching control group, showing a statistically significant improvement in focused attention over a period of five days. Over and above the effect size is large.

 

The experimental group in Dr. Jaidan Mays from the University of Johannesburg’s study showed an improvement of 1.5 years in visual and visual sequential memory, after receiving intensive Edublox training over a five-day period. Dr. Lee DeLorge in Ohio tested 67 students aged 5 to 18 with ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia and non-specific learning disabilities. The processing speed of 94% of the learners improved significantly.

 

A long-term study of 60 deaf learners in Grades 1-3, who did Edublox daily for a year, demonstrated a significant increase in reading and spelling performance, as compared to the control group. Another study at the University of Pretoria by Dr. Wynand de Wet found an increase in non-verbal IQ scores of 11.625 in deaf children after 27.5 hours of Edublox instruction, which was confirmed by our own trials of hearing children: an improvement of 5.6 in verbal IQ and 12.5 in verbal IQ after 40 hours of instruction.
