Learning RX / Great Results

1 Raleigh, NC, United States Review updated:

I would like to counter the negative complaints about Learning Rx with a real success story. Our son was diagnosed with learning delays before he was two years old. After many years of intervention by speech and occupational therapist and special educations programs in public schools, we finally found Learning Rx when our son was in 5th Grade. Our son had always struggled in school which was hard for us since it required so much of our time trying to work with him. The program at Learning Rx was some of the best money we have every spent. It was a real turning point in the life of our son. The end of 5th grade was much easier than the first and now that he is 6th grade he is making straight A's. He was also one of two 6th grader's to make to the finals of the National Geographic Geo-Bee at his middle school. I cannot speak highly enough of Learning Rx. The progress that our son made while in the program was nothing short of miraculous.

    My husband and I meet with our local Learning RX tomorrow. I expect the cost for sending both children to be extremely too much $ for us. Our VP at the elementary school had only negative comments regarding the program and I am seriously concerned about the complaints I have found.
    It seems as though the only people saying nice things work for Learning RX and have a vested interest. I would really appreciate more comments and experiences.
    Thanks.

    Learning RX doesn't work, it's just gimmicks and tricks. You are spending a ton of money on a program that will help your kids memorize things but not improve their understanding. If you child has mental problems, you are far better taking them to a trained and certified proffesional. If your child is struggling with one subject, they don't have a brain issue, often that's a learning style issue, tutoring works better and is cheaper!

    I find the posts from "MikeRX" incredibly amusing. Not even a hint of a two way street, in that not everyone will benefit from LearningRX. To say that every child will benefit is an ridiculous claim, because everyone is different. Some of these complaints are people that apparently have done all the training and still have not seen any results. What would you say to that? That they are lying, as is the usual attitude of rx employees? Or could it be that this program does not apply to everyone and that they are genuine complaints regarding it?

    LearningRX is a joke Mike. Proof is in your post. Look around, all these fake positive reviews. You guys at LearningRX have a lot of great "reviews" yet you don't have the actually peer reviewed testing to back up the claims your program works.

    Also, your method is to test a student, and then test them again at the end, the whole time the program is based to help the kid past the test. Give me 10k and I can help anyone do better on a test the second time around! You can bad mouth people all you want but the fact is, you have a program that has no peer reviewed science to back it up. And don't play that line you have studies on your site, those are a joke. One of them was written by an employee of of the company, that's hardly unbiased.

    I would like to add some perspective. Just to be clear I am an Independent Education Consultant and am not an employee or franchisee of LearningRx. I am a former teacher, a certified cognitive brain trainer and I did work for LearningRx, Inc. I have worked for Kaplan and SCORE! Educational Centers as well as with Sylvan and Kumon. I currently work with families and learning centers across the country. I help families find legitimate programs and intervention for those that are struggling with learning and cognitive skills and those who want to improve their cognitive function and gain a competitive edge in school or the work place. I work with learning centers to maximize their outcomes and success experienced by their clients. I cannot address specific situations or circumstances that are posted previously as I have not been personally involved with those families or employees. What I can speak to is my experience with the LearningRx program. It is important to note that over 25K students have completed the LearningRx program. The gross majority of students who complete the program the way it is prescribed do so with incredible success. In my experience it has worked for truly everyone! This may seem a bold statement but it is important to understand that LearningRx does collect information up front and throughout their assessment and consultation process before recommending a program. LearningRx doesn't recommend a student enter the program unless they have a cognitive deficiency which can be improved by intervention. So there are not students beginning the program that do not need to be there. Secondly, LearningRx offers a generous refund policy of allowing its clients to stop the program at any point and be refunded for any unused time and all time during an initial trial period. This provides a second layer of protection for families and the LearningRx staff to make sure that the student is in the right place. Because of this, by the end of the intake process and first week, if someone that is not a good fit for the LearningRx program has been enrolled then they are referred out to an alternative program. The owners of the centers are aware that it does not do anyone involved any good for students to be in a program that is not going to be successful. These processes as well as the quality of the LearningRx proven methodology applied by excellent certified cognitive trainers is a recipe for success. The franchisees that own the centers are people of the highest caliber that I have come across and truly have the best interest of each client in mind. In summary, for those who want to boost their cognitive skills for enhanced performance or those struggling that are looking to fill in the gaps and create a more successful academic and professional future, LearningRx works and works with incredible results. I have first hand seen lives changed time and time again. I would urge anyone who is considering LearningRx or who is looking for solutions for themselves or their children to go and visit their local LearningRx center. Meet with the owner and the staff and speak with clients that are in the program and those that are graduates from the center you are considering. There are no perfect people or perfect programs but LearningRx is a program that will help get you on the pathway to success.

    I would like to submit another perspective as a parent whose kids went through Learning Rx. I am a pediatric occupational therapist who was at a loss when attempting to figure out how to help my own kids. I was initially skeptical of the claims of LearningRx, but I found that the profound success stories outweigh the few complaints by far. Our experience was extremely positive for both children. Both were doing marginally well in school (one child struggled to read, the other child struggled across the board, but is a good reader) and are both currently excelling in an advanced curriculum with ease and tremendous confidence. I strongly recommend that parents look at both sides, and check the references and results of the individual centers. This program worked beyond our expectations and I know many families who have had the same experience with LearningRx. Don't discount the value of cognitive training and a whole program because of a relative few disgruntled people. LearningRx was life changing for our family.

    TBI, Brain Aneurysm - My mother-in-law had a brain aneurysm 10 yrs ago. Since then, she uses a notebook as her memory. She writes down that she showered, fed the horseds, washed clothes, etc. No job, can't drive, can't remember on Monday that she went on a 7 day cruise and got home on Sunday. In comes Learning RX. We signed up for a 32 week course. After 2 weeks we saw positive changes: her trainers name, where it is located, remembers how to do some of the different training activities. Now, 6 weeks later, attending 5 days a week for only 1 hour, she remembers: what day it is (which was her only goal for this program), what she did on the weekend, events that are coming up, what she ate that day, to take her medication without reminders & she now has feelings & emotions about things (I think her brain couldn't process anything that deep before), she pays more attention to detail, she has self esteem & feels like she has a purpose in life. IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING!!! What will she be like when the program is complete? She is getting her life back & we are seeing it happen. Keep in mind, this is after 10 years of little to no brain activity...I hope this gives someone the information to help a loved one with TBI!

    I just wanted to post my opinion about my experience with the Learning Rx. A few years ago my son's teacher informed me that he may have a learning disability and recommended that I have him tested. I had no idea where to go to do this so I looked online for a place that could help us. I came across the Learning Rx and scheduled him an appointment. My son took the test and when the results came back the lady (I can't remember her name) told us that he did indeed have a learning disability. After going over their program and telling us how much it would cost we had to tell her that we could not afford it. She was unsympathetic and tried to convince us to get a loan. When we still insisted that we couldn't afford it she asked me "Don't you love your son?" It took everything I had to keep my cool but I walked out of her office. The program lost all credibility to me when she asked that question. They don't care about you or your children. They just want their obscene amount of money. Only greed could make someone ask a mother that kind of question when she clearly knew the answer to it. I wouldn't have taken him there in the first place if I didn't want the best for him. We never did go back to the learning RX and now my son is a sophmore in high school and I am happy to announce that he is an honor roll student. Turns out, he didn't have a learning disability afterall. He just needed a little time and patience to help him find his way.

    Kumon student, 13, who is a victim pleads in Bellflower court to give convicted molester (Kumon Instructor) 'what he deserves'


    BELLFLOWER -- A 13-year-old molestation victim pleaded with a judge Monday to give the man who molested her "what he deserves."

    "I'm not confident, I'm not comfortable socializing with anybody and it's hard to trust people, " said the girl, whose name was withheld because she is a victim of a sex crime.

    Her statement came at the sentencing of her attacker, Frank Chung, a 63-year-old local man who molested her and allegedly two other girls at his Norwalk Kumon Math & Reading Center.

    "I just want what he deserves, " the victim calmly but quietly told Bellflower Superior Court Judge Leland Tipton moments before Chung was sentenced to eight years in prison.

    The 13-year-old victim is one of three girls who told authorities they were attacked by Chung at the Kumon Tutoring Center, and she was the first victim to come forward, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Detective Rudy Acevedo.

    Chung was arrested Sept. 8, and charged with lewd acts with a minor based on the allegation he molested the 13-year-old on a number of occasions at the Kumon Math & Reading center.

    When news of his arrest broke, the other two victims came forward and additional counts were added to the charge, Acevedo said.

    As part of a plea agreement reached last month, Chung pleaded no contest to a single count related to the first victim in exchange for eight years behind bars.

    Defense Attorney Rayford Fountain noted at sentencing that his client received a number of letters of support from colleagues and friends and asked the prosecution and the court to consider lowering the sentence time.

    "Many people have stood up for him, " Fountain said.

    Deputy District Attorney Nicole Vo said all the mitigating circumstances were taken into consideration when the eight-year plea deal was offered and therefore it would not be reduced.

    The prosecutor explained outside the courtroom eight years is the maximum allowed by law for the one count. She also noted Chung will have to serve the time in state prison and he must serve at least 85 percent of the time before he can be considered eligible for parole.

    The plea, she and the detective said, was effective in a number of ways.

    "I think he accepted responsibility very early in the proceedings and ... we're seeing a resolution that includes state prison time and he will have to register as a sex offender for life, " Vo said.

    Acevedo added the early resolution also spares the victims the difficulty of testifying in trial.

    "The benefit of the plea isn't for the defendant, it's for the victims, " he said.

    Upon his release, Chung will be placed on three years parole and the charge, considered a violent sexual offense, leaves a strike on Chung's record, said Acevedo, who is assigned to the Special Victims Bureau.

    The defendant is the owner of the Kumon Learning Center and worked there for five years with children providing after-school tutoring, according to the criminal complaint.

    Child sex crimes are not unheard of at franchise learning centers like Kumon Math. The best way to protect your child is to be well informed. Follow these simple steps before enrolling your child in a tutoring or learning program.
    1. Do your research on the company. If they have any case of sex crimes against children like child abuse, molestation, rape etc. STOP. Don't enroll your child.
    2. Demand copies of police background check report, sex offender registry check report and FBI sex crimes check report from the tutoring center owner for each and every employee at the learning center.
    3. Demand a copy of Liability Insurance policy and coverage of the learning center.
    4. Demand a copy of their Insurance Coverage for Sexual Misconduct claims policy specifically related to Sexual Abuse and Molestation.
    5. Demand a copy of the State Teaching license by the board of education of the teachers at the tutoring or learning center.
    6. Teach your child to inform you of any unpleasant experiences at the learning center that they might encounter.
    7. Do not hesitate to report any case to the police. Let them investigate the matter professionally. Most companies try to cover-up sex crimes. Be vigilant.
    8. Do not let your guard down just because you see that the teacher is a woman. There are dangers lurking every where. There are many cases of women child abusers and molesters too.
    9. Demand a copy of photographs of the teacher and every employee of the learning center and confirm. This will come in handy when contacting the police in case your child is kidnapped.
    Be safe.
