Candice’s LearningRx Story

Our story actually began the summer of 2008. Our daughter Candice was hospitalized for ten weeks suffering from encephalitis. She was in a coma for five weeks. Candice had to learn to walk, eat, and talk again. We knew we had a tough and long road ahead of us. Once we got her back in school she was in kindergarten and had to be placed in special Ed. Every parent has hope for their child to grow up and learn without struggling. We started looking into options that could help Candice do better in school and also to help raise her self-esteem. LearningRx was brought to our attention. We decided to take her to be tested and to weight our options. Her test scores were very low which in turn broke our heart, but we weren’t giving up. Last November Candice started the Einstein program. Due to the illness Candice had she was considered to be a traumatic brain injured child. Rachael was her trainer and a very good one at that. It took a lot of patience and time for Candice to catch on, but she started doing better. Her reading and her spelling have improved so much. Math has gotten a lot easier for Candice, also. Candice’s attitude has gotten better along with her behavior. She laughs and smiles more and seems happier. Homework has also become easier for her. I thank God and all the people at LearningRx for working with Candice and never giving up on her. We are still in special Ed at school, but we believe one day she will be able to join the regular classroom setting. The improvement I have seen in Candice, I know will continue. And most of all we want to thank God for the...

My Son’s Trainer Has Been a God-Send!

In short, I was a desperate and exhausted parent when I “discovered” LearningRx, and while I am still somewhat exhausted I am no longer desperate. Through the wonderfully caring and encouraging relationship my son, Miles, forged with his trainer and mentor, he has not only grown in cognition but most importantly in personal esteem and self-responsibility. He takes more initiative for getting his school work done and has more confidence in completing his work in a more independent, timely fashion. His processing speed has improved as he completes tasks more quickly. His memory skills are better to the point that he remembers assignments and keeps up with the materials better. He has matured and taken more personal responsibility for his work. I am sure the actual curriculum and skill-building exercises have improved his cognitive skills, but there is no question that the greatest advances here come from the deep and positive connection and relationship he has forged with his trainer. She has been a God-send to us all!! Many thanks, especially for...

Learningrx Gave My Son a New Start Toward a Bright Future

LearningRx came into our life when Athan was in Kindergarten. After dealing and getting under control his problems with ADHD, he was still having great difficulty academically. He lacked confidence and would not apply himself. I heard about LearningRx and discussed this with Athan’s Kindergarten teacher and we both agreed that it couldn’t hurt to try. Athan was tested and we got our answers. Athan is dyslexic and LearningRx had the solution to help him learn. Athan was in the program for a while and it seemed that no change was happening, but then the light came on and Athan began to soar. His confidence grew. The last 9 weeks of his Kindergarten year he brought his grades from unsatisfactory to satisfactory. His teacher was thrilled as were many others in his life. Athan had been in danger of being retained, but thanks to LearningRx he was able to pull up his grades and move onto first grade. He also went from being in the bottom in his Kindergarten class to now being in the top of his first grade class. Thank you so much LearningRx for helping Athan with his learning abilities, giving him a new start toward a bright...

Now, Bradee Is Reading Books on Her Own

Bradee has always struggled with school. She started first grade behind her peers, but her teacher worked with her and caught her up. After first grade she had continued to fall behind. School work overwhelmed her and was often brought home to be completed along with her assigned homework. It took her hours to do everything, even with help and she was frustrated every evening. Then we had her tested at LearningRx at the beginning of 5th grade. She has completed their ReadRx program Her dyslexia always made reading difficult for her, although she loved to be read to and had great comprehension skills when she listened to the story. Now, Bradee is reading books on her own and learning which kind of books and which authors she likes best. She has a Kindle and downloads books. LearningRx has helped her catch up with her peers, learn to love reading, and helped our entire family feel excited about school instead of frustrated! We can’t thank LearningRx and her trainer...

Kyle Has Made Unbelievable Progress

I have known since Kyle was in Kindergarten that he did not process information correctly. He had it in his head but he could not transfer it to the paper. He would say the letter, then ask me, “How do you write that?” We retained him in Kindergarten. He made little progress the next year. In 1st grade we would do homework for hours at night. It was a struggle just to keep him passing. In the summer between 1st and 2nd grade I saw a commercial for LearningRx on TV. I stopped by LearningRx just to find out some information. Before I left we had set up a testing date for him. He was tested and we found out that he was dyslexic. He started training at LearningRx about a month later. He has made unbelievable progress. Kyle has always loved for someone to read to him. He went from being a non-reader to loving to read. It is wonderful to ride down the road and have him reading everything he sees. He is very proud of himself when he can read a book with little or no help. Homework is now completed with little or no help and is done in about 30 minutes. He was even on the “B” Honor Roll. He would not have accomplished any of this if it were not for the wonderful training that he received at...

Hunter’s Improved Memory

Hunter is a kind-hearted, great kid. He was developmentally ahead in motor skills but was delayed in speech. He was diagnosed with verbal apraxia and was working with a speech therapist until 2nd grade. He was also more of a hyperactive child and we eventually put him on ADHD medication. During 4th grade we had a lot of struggles remembering math facts, memory, and his grades started to fall. Hunter was also having a lot of side effects from the medication. In the fall of 5th grade we met Dr. Frahm with Maximized Living; he was helping us with taking Hunter off of the medication. After about six months we saw improvements in Hunter but his grades were still struggling and he was forgetting many things. Dr. Frahm referred us to LearingRx. He saw that Hunter was a bright kid and he thought that LearningRx could help. In February of 2015, we met with Kevin and learned about what LearningRx had to offer. Hunter had a lot of strengths that were found in his testing but short and long term memory were a definite weakness. After finding this out a light bulb clicked and we were able to look back on so many long hours of homework and crying because we were re-teaching the same concepts every night. We were all so frustrated and it was taking a toll on the family. His school even wanted us to consider retaining him because his grades were so bad. When LearningRx came into the picture there were some immediate positives. Hunter worked with John and they seemed to hit it off from the beginning. There were some days that Hunter struggled to work, but John was able to work with that and was still able to bring a positive spin on their session. Hunter was gaining more self-confidence and was in a happier mood toward the end of the school year. Kevin stated that we would not necessarily see the LearningRx progress until the end of the program. At the start of 6th grade Hunter was bringing home better grades and was not forgetting homework. He has not had to re-take tests and earned a B+ on his first science test. He was also working hard on being able to have a 3.0 GPA to be invited to the Junior National Honor Society at the end of the 1st quarter. Hunter achieved that goal and this was a huge step in the right direction for him. We are so happy with LearningRx and the doors that will be opened to him because of his hard...
