Just wanted to tell you about how great the boys did tonight with their homework. Dan had spelling, reading, math, and science homework which took over an hour. He never lost focus or got distracted, he stayed on task the whole time with excellent mental energy; he never fatigued, which was a huge problem previously. Michael did equally well. He had spelling, times table drill and worksheet, and studying for social studies test Friday. He also stayed on task, wasn’t distracted and demonstrated a great work ethic. I know it’s only the first night of homework but a huge improvement over last year. Thank you Brain...

We are so thrilled! Our son has gone from reading on first grade level to the fifth grade level. He couldn’t have done this without the trainers at Learning RX. They have helped him get to where he needs to be. He is making A’s and B’s instead of C’s and D’s. We see improvement in all subjects, not just reading. Brayden told his Dr yesterday that math is his favorite subject. I never thought we would hear those words! Learning RX has been a big commitment but more than worth it.

Thank you and Deb for making Drew’s experience there so successful and his graduation so memorable. It continues to overwhelm me how big a difference you two – and the Learning Rx program – have made in his and our family’s lives. I thank you and Deb from the bottom of my heart for your attentiveness, sensitivity and hard work with Drew. WHAT A DIFFERENCE you’ve made in his life. As Shakespeare said ‘Evermore thanks.’ You’ll always be in my heart. I know that others there who engaged with him made a big difference too. Drew is such a beautiful person, and he faced such difficulties due to poor cognition. It was a rough go for many years for all of us me, Robert, and especially Drew. It took so long for us to learn about brain training, to find a program, and then get Drew to engage with. In February 2013, Robert and I went to see a doctor upon referral from my work’s Employee Assistance Program. We did not know how to force Drew to do something with his life, and thus sought assistance. We described Drew – his strengths, his issues, the manner in which he was living (or not living) his life. The doctor was GREAT. He listened; he affirmed our being at wit’s end, acknowledged our dilemma as Drew was already 21. He said based on our description, there were definite cognitive impairments and likely neurologic deficiencies. He said something could be done about it though – which raised us from our depressed state. He gave us the book Unlock the Einstein Inside at the end of the session and talked about LearningRx. He didn’t say it would definitely help. He said there were several programs; this was one and that about half the people he referred there were pleased with the results. He suggested we read the book and consider it. The book explained so much and gave us so much hope. We visited the doctor again a month later, and told him how Drew seemed to fit parts of the profiles in the book. We said we could not feel responsible as parents if we didn’t do all we could to make him take charge of his life and his learning. The doctor said our plan sounded reasonable and so we carried it out. Take the assessment or move out. Happily, you know the rest of the story. Wow – what an incredible result. I could see his confidence SOAR when he heard the results of the reassessment. I think he was astounded – and we were too!! I know Drew did that work, but Deb especially, and you and everyone there who made him feel so NORMAL about it all were absolutely vital to make this massive change in his...
