Unlock the Einstein Inside.
Imagine hearing for the first time your 8 year old daughter saying “I can do it,” rather than “I feel so dumb.” Imagine looking all over the house for your 13 year old son and when you finally find him, he’s on the couch reading a book, the last place you would ever think to find him. This, from the boy who always asked “When can I stop?” or “How many pages do I have to read?” Imagine not hearing from the teacher because your 9 year old son stayed in his seat the entire day without getting distracted or causing problems.
There is no imagining at LearningRx. These are actual statements that parents have shared both during the program and also months after the program has completed. There are also not only testimonials, but concrete gains as well: Gains across all of the seven cognitive skills that are essential for making learning and reading easier. These seven skills include short term memory, long term memory, auditory processing, visual processing, logic and reasoning, word attack, and processing speed. During a 12 week program, LearningRx Newtown averages a 3.5 year gain across all of these skills. This is including both strong and deficit skills. Our programs do target the weaker skills determined by our Woodcock Johnson Tests of Cognitive Achievement but we do train all of them as they all work interdependently. During our 24 week program, ReadRx, LearningRx Newtown averages 6.25 years across all skills, providing the child proper reading instruction and specific cognitive skills training capable of strengthening phonemic awareness that can dramatically improve any student’s reading.
Unfortunately, learning struggles are not a phase your child will outgrow. Learning, reading, or attention difficulties rarely go away with time. Students struggle to learn or read for a reason, a reason that new brain science links to individual cognitive skill weaknesses. Unlike tutoring which attempts to re-teach material that should have already been learned, LearningRx focuses on why the student didn’t learn this information the first time. Cognitive training exercise engages the student to systematically focus on and strengthen the brain’s core mental abilities. Throughout the custom program, a student works closely with his or her own private trainer. This one-on-one training relationship and skill-specific exercises combine to produce big improvements quickly.
LearningRx can help anyone to learn, read, and think faster and easier. The training exercises the brain in the same way that a fitness coach works your muscles with the end result similar-more strength to accomplish the task. They have programs to help anyone: children with an ADHD/ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorder or Dyslexia Diagnosis, students in kindergarten through college, athletes looking to gain an edge, adult professionals who want to get ahead in their field, and even older adults who want to retain their sharp memories.
