Our Rich History

The Edublox system, which has by now touched the lives of over 150,000 people in approximately forty countries, started its own life as a small school readiness program in 1979.

After producing promising results for the very young, its reach was extended to primary school children, later high school learners and finally adults; it was adapted for small to large groups, and was tailored to not only improve cognitive skills but also to address deficits in reading, spelling, handwriting, maths and concentration. It was tested on adults suffering from traumatic brain injury after a car or motorcycle accident, and on children with autism, Down syndrome, mental retardation and deafness.

After more than 3,000 teachers had been trained world-wide to use the system in their classrooms, the business model was changed in 2007 when the first full-blown Edublox clinic was opened, offering classes to develop cognitive abilities, language, reading and spelling skills, culminating in a course that teaches study skills.

Since implementing our franchise model in 2010, Edublox has grown to include 21 offices, offering a variety of services and products. By using tried and tested educational practices based on established theories, and quality control at all franchises, we can guarantee a 95% success rate and long-standing results.
