How LearningRx Transformed a Young Girl’s Self Image
At nine years old, Callie Pinkley was already feeling defeated in school.
“Callie had been struggling with reading, comprehension, spelling, memory and processing information,” says her mother Kendra. “She had been receiving tutoring from her teacher, but it wasn’t making an impact. At home, it was always a fight. Fighting to get her to read, to do homework, fighting because she couldn’t remember a word she read two sentences earlier. She hated reading and would often say, ‘I’m stupid.’ She continually struggled despite interventions which never worked. Due to low reading skills, her teacher was suggesting that Callie repeat the second grade. Callie was not on track to pass the IRead and IStep testing. I didn’t know what to do. Then I heard the LearningRx commercial, and it was speaking directly to us, offering hope for Callie’s struggle.”
Licensed LearningRx staff tested Callie to pinpoint the exact cause of Callie’s learning struggles.
“Callie showed severe deficits in certain cognitive skills that are necessary to learn, read and comprehend information,” says Heather Koenig, Director of LearningRx Indianapolis. “Callie had weaker skills like attention, processing speed, auditory processing, memory, logic and reasoning, keeping her from reaching her full potential.”
Callie’s action plan was a six-month one-on-one cognitive brain training program at LearningRx. The transformation became obvious by all, including Callie’s teacher, Sarah Miller, who came to Callie’s program graduation. Callie’s amazing improvements include improved grades (now on honor roll), advancing three reading levels, greatly improved comprehension, better focus and attention, higher self-confidence and her greatest accomplishment this year — easily passing the IRead test.
“Though every student is different, Callie’s improvements are typical at LearningRx,” says Heather Koenig. “On average, we see at least a 3-year increase in reading and comprehension and an IQ score increase of 15-21 points. That is life changing for a struggling student. Parents come to LearningRx not for a band-aid, but for a permanent fix. About 80 percent of learning problems are caused by inefficiencies in how the brain processes information.
“We are able to pinpoint the underlying cause of the struggle and create a customized brain training solution that makes learning easier and faster. Students come in struggling and are transformed in as little as four to six months. The learning skills were already there, we just needed to get to them to unlock the full potential.”
Callie graduated from her program several months ago and Kendra is continually amazed at how well Callie is doing and still improving.
“We are truly grateful for LearningRx for the permanent changes in our daughter and would highly recommend it to anyone who is struggling in school, home or life skills,” Kendra adds.
