This boy’s future is bright! LearningRx Charlottesville, VA Review

In February of 2017, a despairing eleven year old boy reluctantly walked into Learning Rx. A boy, who felt as though he’d been evaluated and gauged his entire life. From one appointment, one analysis, to the next. From one teacher, one special ed classroom, to the next. This boy, so desperate to learn and frantic to fit in, just couldn’t. Initial testing revealed that this 5th grader, cognitively, compared to 2nd graders. In all areas of evaluation, he tested significantly below level. We began training immediately. It was intense. Three days a week, 90 minute sessions, sometimes Friday night, sometimes Saturday morning, brutal for a pre-teen. There were days when he would cry, even resist drop-off at the center. Then there was Heather… In May, a new connection was made, Heather Spence became the brain trainer. Whereas the repetitious mental exercises noticeably enriched this boy’s cognitive skills, Heather Spence made the greatest impact! The bond that formed, that unified a team of two, will never be forgotten by my son. Not only was Heather able to keep him fighting, “do it again,” she also built, pebble by pebble, a self-confidence, a conviction, a quality, a value no longer present within this young boy. In June, the nearly 12 year old, read his first book independently. In December, he participated in a play with a speaking part, a dancing part, and even played the chimes during several songs. With a heart of gold and a lifetime of possibilities, this boy’s future is bright. Thank you Learning Rx, thank you Heather Spence! Lindsay...

The Brain Trainers Were AMAZING! With the school wanting to place my son in a special education classroom and not getting down to the heart of the issue, I was desperate for a place like LearningRx.

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...
