LearningRx Chattanooga Brain Training Center Hosts Local Families During Graduate Reunion

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

LearningRx Chattanooga Brain Training Center welcomed families from across Tennessee Valley; including Signal Mountain, Cleveland, Whitwell, Trenton, Rossville and Chickamauga during a recent graduate reunion celebration held at the Mellow Mushroom in Chattanooga. 60 guests enjoyed brain games, prizes, pizza and re-connected with other families who have graduated from the program.

Former students shared updates about their lives, including a former middle school student who was struggling to keep up his grades because of weak cognitive skills but is now a straight ‘A’ student at a local high school. 

“We are thrilled to have helped so many children change their lives and continue their journey to reach their full potential.  What we tell parents who have children who are struggling in school is, eliminate the guesswork by getting your child tested. The first step in the brain training process is the assessment which gives a great visual on where the gaps and weaknesses are for struggling learners,” said Michelle Davis, executive director.

We do have a rail line with the Tennessee Valley RR Museum and their hardware. And they already make runs from the Southside to close to Enterprise ... (click for more)
