LearningRx Chattanooga Hosts Back To School Open House For Families And Educators

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

LearningRx Chattanooga Brain Training Center will host a Back to School Open House for families and educators on Saturday, Aug. 2 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.  All are welcome to visit the cognitive skills training center and enjoy free brain training demonstrations, food and drinks, homework resources plus tour the newly renovated site. Parents will receive a free copy of ‘Homework Tips That Really Work’ with effective strategies to help students succeed this school year. 

Attendees may also sign up for a cognitive skills assessment and receive 50% off the test.

The results of the assessment can help students decide which steps to take in strengthening weak cognitive skills.

“Schools are often mandated to screen for problems with vision, hearing, weight and other health related concerns.  Screening for cognitive skills weaknesses helps to uncover problems which can hinder learning,” said Michelle Hecker-Davis, executive director, LearningRx Chattanooga Brain Training Center.

According to Ms. Davis, common signs of weak cognitive skills include: reading problems; attention issues; struggling with long hours of homework; poor grades; lack of confidence; and mystery ailments, such as unexplained sicknesses on test days.
