October Is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month

Local brain training center offering $50 off assessments throughout October

October 02, 2015 // Franchising.com // Colorado Springs, CO – October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month and local brain training company LearningRx Colorado Springs is offering $50 off cognitive skills assessments throughout the month.

“There are lots of myths surrounding learning disabilities in our country,” says LearningRx Vice President of Research & Development Tanya Mitchell. “One is that smart kids can’t have learning disabilities. Not only is it untrue, but also it’s quite common for kids with average and above average intelligence to have learning struggles. Just think of that smart teen who has attention struggles, or that brilliant child who can’t seem to ‘get’ math.”

Other myths include the ideas that reading struggles are about reversing letters, or that some people are born bad at math and destined to struggle with it for the rest of their life, and that tutoring is the best alternative for kids who struggle in school.

“Many parents come to us after tutoring has failed. That’s because tutoring is simply about rehashing information - such as math formulas and history facts. But one-on-one brain training improves the underlying skills - like auditory processing and processing speed - needed to process, remember, analyze, and recall in any subject. Brain training makes people of any age a better and faster learner, reader and thinker.”

Throughout the month of October, anyone who struggles with learning can come in for a discounted brain skills assessment that will measure their cognitive skills. To schedule an appointment, call 719-550-8263 and mention “LD Month.”

About Learning Disabilities Awareness Month

In 1985, President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation designating October as Learning Disabilities Awareness Month. Nonprofits use the month to spread awareness of various disabilities through events, articles, media appearances, and toolkits. Some of the most common learning disabilities in the United States are dyslexia, ADHD, dyscalculia (math struggles), dysgraphia (writing problems), and executive function difficulties (problems with organization).
