As parents of a child with learning issues we struggled to find a program to help with her reading skills. After formal educational testing with her Psychologist was done, LearningRx was recommended. The commitment to five days a week seemed daunting but we made it a priority. I believe the methods used for cognitive training really helped with not only school work but with emotional issues as well. My daughter seemed to be happier in general after her training sessions. As the weeks went by she also improved socially at school. This year has been a leap academically and she is motivated for the first time to actually complete all her work on time. At 11 years of age I think a child should be responsible for his/her school work, and only require guidance from a parent. Without this program I fear we would have been struggling as a family to complete assignments, instead of seeing her independently accomplish her work. Her grades are excellent, although she will not be satisfied until she gets straight As. Reading is still not a favorite subject; however I see her reading for information now. In the past she never researched anything, we always had to read instructions, or obtain information for her. Also, her reading fluency and word attack has improved and that was our initial goal. One of the other benefits is the loss of a particularly annoying response we heard for years. In response to almost any question she would state, "I don't know." Now we never hear that statement. I would like to thank her primary trainer. He was reliable, professional, understanding and patient with our child. She even looked forward to returning to LearningRx and her trainer after the holiday break. That really caught me by surprise! Thanks for everything. I have recommended the program to a former classmate and now he attends as well. We will continue to recommend LearningRx.
