July Is National Make a Difference in a Child Month LearningRx Brain Training— Local Girl Named Student of the Year Finalist in LearningRx National Contest for Exceptional Brain Training Results
LearningRx Student Of The Year Finalist changed her attitude about school and reading after her brain training program at LearningRx's Chattanooga center.
Colorado Springs, CO, July 13, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Chattanooga, Tennessee student Lauren Sims has been named one of five finalists in LearningRx’s national competition celebrating real life changing stories across the country. Lauren’s parents enrolled her in personal brain training after they noticed she was having trouble sounding out words and reading out loud, as well as struggling with math, confidence and memory-related tasks.
Before LearningRx, Lauren avoided reading. Now her parents say she reads voluntarily! They also witnessed her confidence soar, her math and memory skills improve, and her nightly struggles with homework practically disappear. For the summer break, Lauren set a goal to read more than 26 books. “Before LearningRx, I didn’t want to go to college,” she says, “but now I think that could be another challenge that I could do for myself and that I could overcome.” Lauren’s mother says Lauren has talked about becoming a surgeon.
Lauren’s improvements mirror those of a recent study in which students made statistically significant gains on tests of Word Attack, Spelling Sounds, Sound Awareness and Passage Comprehension after completing LearningRx personal brain training. A compilation of recent research studies on LearningRx programs can be found in the 48-page 2016 edition of “Client Outcomes and Research Results,” which can be downloaded here: http://www.learningrx.com/our-programs/learningrx-results/. The winner of the contest will be announced at the LearningRx national conference and on www.LearningRx.com on August 1."Before LearningRx, I didn't want to go to college," she says, "but now I think that could be another challenge that I could do for myself and that I could overcome."
