Brain Training Company Urges Report Card Scrutiny

LearningRx in Chester, NJ Pinpoints Blame for Report Card Problems

Online PR News – 28-November-2009 – – Chester, NJ November 28, 2009- Brain training company LearningRx is urging parents to take a closer look at their kids’ latest report cards, and dig into the underlying reason for any struggles summarized there.

“More than 80 percent of all learning problems are caused by weak cognitive skills,” says Jim Goryeb of the Chester LearningRx. “If parents really want to see the true cause of learning struggles, they need just one test for their child: a cognitive skills assessment. This test will uncover learning weaknesses, and give insight on ways to ease the struggles, bring up the grades and build new confidence.”

A cognitive skills assessment will test the underlying mental tools needed to think, reason, remember and pay attention. The tests take about ninety minutes and are available at LearningRx for less than half the cost of other facilities.

"One of the biggest reasons for the educational struggle in America continues to be weak cognitive skills," says Dr. Ken Gibson, a pioneer in cognitive skills enhancement, founder of LearningRx, and author of Unlock the Einstein Inside: Applying New Brain Science To Wake Up the Smart in your Child. “The good news is, these skills can be strengthened in just a few weeks with intense brain training, making learning much, much easier.”

“Sometimes no amount of accommodations, tutoring or pull-out programs can help a child if the underlying problem is weak cognitive skills,” says Goryeb. “That’s why it’s so important for parents to really reflect on their kids’ report cards, and see if a cognitive weakness may be to blame. So often, we have parents come to LearningRx, get the test, see the results, and finally feel like they have answers, and a solution that can fix the problem, permanently.”
