Can This School Year Be Different? YES, it Can! Yes, it Will! | LearningRX Leesburg

As a mom, I always look forward to a new school year. Yellow pencils, backpacks, cute, new school clothes, all the bright gear for new beginnings and new adventures. I want my children to succeed this year.

Every year, my husband and I encouraged, recognized and rewarded our kid’s success. We loved that they got excited and felt positively about themselves. But the excitement began to fade every fall as they began to notice that they were struggling in areas that were easy for other children. For the years that followed, the beginning of the school year meant stressful teacher meetings and those frustrating talks with our kids.

I hoped and prayed my kids would look forward to the school year with greater expectations and real excitement, but as the summer began to fade all we’d hear was…

“School is boring, boring, boring!”

“It’s just stupid.”

“Only recess is fun…”

We lost several years hoping that this year would be different, but none of the academic interventions changed their underlying weaknesses. The outside help we hired barely made a difference in how they saw themselves or their confidence in school.

That’s when we tried something totally different. That’s when we were rewarded with huge improvements. Our oldest two children went through individualized programs at LearningRx and now they’re excited again about school and we’re all excited what the future holds. LearningRx is not tutoring. We tried tutoring. We tried multiple tutors. Tutors were re-teaching material that our children didn’t get the first time.

Unfortunately, tutors could not treat the cause behind learning difficulties. They didn’t know how. But at LearningRx they trained our kids’ brains to focus better, think faster and retain more information. They made learning easier by treating the cause behind weak academic skills. Our kids were more successful and better yet, they knew they were becoming more successful! That’s why my husband and I are owners of LearningRx Leesburg. Now we live with children that believe they are capable of anything!

The best part of what we do is that we aren’t limited to just helping children and teens. LearningRx has proven it’s effectiveness with students of all ages and all academic performance levels. Since research has now revealed that IQ is not fixed and the brain can improve its cognitive ability at any age, we can help young professionals working towards a promotion, career adults struggling to stay on top of their game, as well as senior adults with weak memory skills. And the changes are permanent. So ask yourself, “Can this year be different?” My answer is yes—it can be with a stronger, faster brain at LearningRx. Take a moment and see our story at: We live with the proof that a changed brain means a changed life.
