Learning RX? Does it help?

My local Learning RX center is saying that it can help kids with ADD. Looking for anyone who it's worked for or not worked for, and their experience. Thanks!



I work for LearningRx but also have a son with attention problems. I have seen great changes with my son and with students I have trained using their programs. After years of research, I haven't found a single program that gets results like LearningRx. Another thing to consider is your child may have issues with skills like auditory processing or visual processing that add to their attention problems. Many times when you work to strengthen underlying skills, attention improves LearningRx deals with all general learning skills, so they can find and target all weaknesses. LearningRx also has a results report online that looks at different groups of students they worked with including ADHD and their actual results. Also, something interesting, parents are very happy with the results, on a scale of 1 to 10, parents nationally rank LearningRx a 9.3 as how likely they would refer friends and family.

Thank you both so much for your input. It was very helpful. I am also considering Brain Balance so your input was spot on.

We looked into this and chose to go to a PACE therapist. This is the same as learning rx but done by an individual. There is no contract and it is pay as you go, 60.00 per hr 3x per week for 12 weeks. We are on week 3 and it has some interesting concepts to learning. Our daughter has been tested and has slow processing speed and dyslexia so this is supposed to help with this. We also have tried 35 sessions of biofeedback and it didn't do much but she does sleep better. Google pace therapist for your area and see if someone is trained. So far no complaints...

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    Support from family

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
