I'm interested to hear feedback that others have had with using the LearningRx
system for improving cognitive processing skill and speed.

I have a 6 year old son who is doing well academically on reading, but we sensed that he had some challenges with math and logic as it applies to keeping focused attention. We had an assessment done with a local LearningRx office and they confirmed much of what we saw, which is that he is well above grade level in some areas and well below in others.
His profile shows him to be very strong in verbal skills but he struggles to slow down enough to absorb instructions to work effectively through logic problems. I got a very good impression of the professionalism and capability of the staff in our local center and it seems like they could make some positive contribution, but it is a pretty expensive program that goes 12-16 weeks for five days a week. I'm prepared to do the right thing for him, but this is all rather new to me and I'm trying to become a quick study on this.
