“He realized that he COULD do things that he didn’t think he would be able to”

Brain Training Reaching Students Potential Logan was struggling with memorizing his multiplication facts and he seemed to have a hard time remembering things that had be told to him over and over. One of his friend’s mothers told us about LearningRx, and how it was helping her son with connections he was missing. We went through the assessment process and discovered that Logan had a couple of weak areas that were keeping him from making the connections he needed to make. His trainer, Sara, worked with him 3 times a week for about 6 months. At first, he was resistant to go because he didn’t want to have to put the effort into thinking. But Sara kept working with him to make it fun AND challenging. One of the first impressive things he managed to do was to memorize all the presidents in order. He was so proud of himself, and suddenly, he realized that he COULD do things that he didn’t think he would be able to. As he continued with his sessions, we could see an improvement in his ability to think more logically and in his ability to attempt the hard stuff. His grades improved over this last year and his teacher has even commented on how much more focused he has been in class. I’m glad we found brain training, I think it has unlocked his potential and has given him the confidence he needs to be...

“LearningRx helped him to realize that with a good plan, a positive attitude and a good work ethic, you can achieve things that at first seem impossible”

As a family philosophy, we have always educated ourselves about neuroplasticity. We believe that a healthy diet, clean environment, and proper stimulation contribute to good brain health. When we learned about brain training through LearningRx, we were excited about how it may be able to help our son. Although our son has always been an excellent student with good grades, he was challenged with some different types of difficulties in school – he struggled to pay attention in class and work through noise and other distractions. Many days, he would come home from school either forgetting his books, or writing down the wrong assignment. When we first started LearningRx, he said it was really challenging and he didn’t think he would ever be able to memorize all presidents forwards, let alone backwards. After 12 weeks of perserverance and great training, he can name all presidents forwards AND backwards. He says that makes him feel “awesome” about himself. He said the class was fun, but sometimes frustrating. He said it was hard to make his brain focus on these tricky tasks. But he got better every week and our son said that he is proud of what he has accomplished in the program. Our son said that he has learned to work through a lot of distractions and feels prepared and excited for the start of his 5th grade school year. We are thrilled to see his progess and witness his confidence. He has memorized his books, assignments, and all school items EVERY day so far in the first three weeks of school. He has a great attitude about going to school. His teacher has already referred to him as an awesome and responsible student. Our son will take these lessons with him, along with a new sense of confidence about himself. LearningRx helped him to realize that with a good plan, a positive attitude and a good work ethic, you can achieve things that at first seem impossible. Great experience overall! And GREAT work by his trainer, Kellie, to bring out his best every...
