It was worth the distance

Our son is eight years old and in the third grade. He qualified for the Gifted and Talented program when he was in Kindergarten and has always made good grades. We started noticing he was lacking skills in reading toward the end of second grade and when he started third grade, we knew he needed help. I am the district librarian and his grandmother is the reading intervention teacher for his school. We tried everything we knew to do, but didn’t seem to be getting anywhere. We finally decided to get outside help. I had a friend that recommended LearningRx, so I started checking into it. The only concern that we had was the distance – 1 hour and 40 minutes away from us! But, once we had him tested and saw where they could help, we got after it. Since we lived so far away, we did the direct training which means I had to sit in on the lessons with him. We only came once a week and did lots of homework. he wasn’t excited about coming at first, but now he loves it. I can’t say enough about his trainer. She has worked so hard with him and is so caring!! My son has improved so much! He loves reading and is more confident now. He has grown in so many areas other than reading, too!! We are amazed at some of the skills he has learned! We are so thankful for LearningRx – the trainer, Donesa, and the whole staff. We feel blessed to have had this experience. As soon as we started coming, we told our son that we were getting him ready for college!! These skills that he has learned will be with him from now on!! He has a great foundation and can be successful at whatever he puts his mind...

I feel that Cameron now has the training and skill set to be very successful, not only in school, but anything he desires.

Cameron is a very bright, smart, young man blessed with common sense. He struggled with taking tests, specifically timed tests. He would “lock up” because it would take him some time to process. We knew he would study, new he understood, but did not test well. The LearningRx process and training has greatly improved Cameron’s results, his confidence has increased, and his study habits have improved. I can see it in conversations with Cameron and how he interacts with others, he is quicker to engage and respond. I feel that Cameron now has the training and skill set to be very successful, not only in school, but anything he...

I’m so, very thankful for this opportunity

I’m so, very grateful for this opportunity for Jaxon. He struggled so badly in school to the point of coming home crying, saying he isn’t smart and can’t read like the other kids in class. It broke my heart and I didn’t understand why he wasn’t getting it. My older son had no problem so this was all new. We decided to seek help. My best friend is a teacher and recommended we try LearningRx, so we did. The day we came in and I saw things the way he saw them, I couldn’t help but cry. My husband is dyslexic and we were told Jaxon showed signs of dyslexia too. I was told to read a paragraph the way dyslexics see things. I couldn’t do it. All I could think about was how many times I stood over him telling him to “Just read it, it isn’t that difficult.” My heart was broken because of how I handled it, but I truly didn’t understand. His confidence in school is so much better. It’s made a world of a difference. We thank you Mrs. Joan for everything you have done. Can’t wait to start the new year to see how he...

We Can Never Thank All of You Adequately!

Before finding LeanringRx, homework had become a nightmare. Helping Sarah complete here homework and study for tests always ended in tears. To be honest, we started the LearningRx program as a “last ditch effort” to try to make learning and studying easier. The LearningRx program was truly an answer to prayers! Before she completed the program, we noticed that Sarah was doing most of her homework on her own and rarely did studying and in tears. Another plus was that she organized her time better and usually started her homework without a lot of reminders. Sarah was on the A honor roll this year – we were all so proud of this accomplishment! The skills she learned and the support she received at LearningRx were part of her successful academic year. We were so pleased with the results of her training, we signed her up for the Comprehend program. While she is still not an avid reader, we have seen a lot of growth. Her comprehension has improved and she reads more “on her own.” Both of these things are blessings and big changes from her previous attitude towards reading. Even more than the brain training, Sarah received something much more valuable. She found a mentor. Alli was the perfect match for Sarah. She pushed when Sarah needed pushing, she backed off when Sarah was too frustrated, and she always encouraged her. Alli became a friend and an example to our daughter. We will always be grateful for her positive influence. In addition, the other trainers at LearningRx were always positive and motivating. Everyone had a kind word, a smile, encouragement, and praise for our daughter. In this environment, she blossomed! She has become more confident, more responsible, and less frustrated. We can never thank all of you adequately! If asked if I would do this again (including driving twice a week) I would whole heartedly and without hesitation say...

I am so glad we heard about LearningRx for our son

We first thought about taking Adam to LearningRx when we discovered he was having so much trouble reading at home. At school he could not get the amount of AR points he was supposed to, each 9 weeks! In elementary school he had special dyslexia classes but was dismissed when he went to middle school. After he tested at LearningRx I was amazed at how we found out how much he was struggling! So, we signed up for his 6 month program. Jeffery has loved going to LearningRx so much. He has never complained at all about it. The trainer they picked for him was perfect. It was like Ms. Kate understood him from day one. She was great at pushing him and encouraging him. Adam also met other trainers and they were always nice and would stop and talk to him. That helped him feel so good about himself. I cannot tell you how many times I have went to his room and found him lying in bed and reading a book! There have also been times when we are going somewhere, he will bring a book to read on the way. His last 9 weeks of school he had 46 AR points! A miracle. He seemed so proud of himself now, that he can read and understand what’s going on. I am so glad we heard about LearningRx for our son. It’s a great place. We are going to miss Ms. Kate so much! She is an awesome person and has touched our lives in a wonderful...

After a rough start, Josh really seemed to enjoy his work. He says he feels like his concentration at school has improved. I have been excited to see him work outside his comfort zone. Josh avoids activities that are not naturally easy for him (as do many of us!). I think it is a great benefit for him to keep working through the LearningRx activities and realize that he can accomplish the tasks. He especially enjoyed the President memorization and the competitions.
