LearningRx – Brain Training – One-on-One Brain Training Company Reviews Tips to Identify an Early Learning Disability in Your Child

April 24-28, 2017 is Week of the Young Child and one-on-one brain training company LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com) is sharing tips to help parents identify an early learning disability in their child.

“Strong cognitive skills are the root of learning,” explains LearningRx Chief Research Officer Tanya Mitchell. “Things like auditory and visual processing, memory, processing speed, comprehension, short- and long-term memory, logic and reasoning, and attention are the underlying tools that enable kids to successfully focus, think, prioritize, plan, understand, visualize, remember and create useful associations, and solve problems.”

According to Mitchell, any weak cognitive skill—or a combination of several—can lead to a learning disability. Parents who suspect a learning struggle based on the following guidelines can have a cognitive skills assessment done at a one-on-one brain training center.
