It is report card time, and local brain training center LearningRx in Chattanooga, adjacent to Bed Bath & Beyond near Hamilton Place, is giving kids and teens a chance to exchange bad report cards for a discounted cognitive skills assessment. The center will host a "Scary Report Card" Open House on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
During the open house, LearningRx Chattanooga will offer anyone under 19 a discounted assessment of their cognitive skills if they bring in a copy of their report card. The assessment measures brain skills like processing speed, attention, logic and reasoning, visual and auditory processing, and memory. The results of the assessment can help students decide what steps to take in strengthening weak cognitive skills.
"Unfortunately, many people wrongly assume that less-than-stellar grades are a reflection of poor teaching or laziness on the part of the student; this is rarely the case," said LearningRx Chattanooga Director Michelle Hecker Davis. "The truth is most bad report cards simply mean that the child is struggling to learn. And learning struggles are due to weak cognitive skills. The good news is that these learning skills can be strengthened through intensive one-on-one brain training."
To learn more about the assessments (a $199 value) or treating the root cause of learning struggles associated with ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger’s, Autism or dyscalculia (trouble with math), contact Michelle Hecker Davis of LearningRx in Chattanooga at firstname.lastname@example.org
