How LearningRx helped Matthew
Decades of research indicate that one-on-one brain training helps children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Today, as part of our Autism Acceptance Month series, let’s look at Matthew’s story!
Like many of our students, Matthew came to LearningRx with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis. He was at risk of being retained for another school year and struggled with reading, memory, and comprehension issues, as well as low confidence. But Matthew’s mom was concerned about his social skills as well as academic issues. After completing a customized, one-on-one brain training program at LearningRx, Matthew’s mom reports he started reading, having conversations with other kids, and demonstrating more confidence. When he went back for a new school year, his teachers were amazed at his progress. His mom says LearningRx took the “hard parts of autism and the things he couldn’t understand and made them bearable.” Now, Matthew plans to be a veterinarian!
