LearningRx Warren Celebrates Valentine’s Day 2014 With Annual “Share the Love” Campaign

February 12, 2014 at 10:55 AM

Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to do something special for the loved one’s in our lives. Traditional gifts like cards, flowers and candy are great, but the brain training experts at LearningRx Warren say brain training is the best gift of all!

According to Marcia Douglas, Owner/Executive Director of LearningRx Warren, “Advances in medical science prove the brain can be rewired, which means the way we think, reason, learn, remember and pay attention, isn’t set in stone. Our brains can always be changed and improved! That’s why brain training is the best gift for you or anyone you love this Valentine’s Day.”

Douglas isn’t the only one heralding the benefits of brain training. The scientific evidence in support of brain training and its many benefits continues to grow each day. And the benefits aren’t only for school aged children.  A study published last month in the Journal of America Geriatrics Society, found that adults who received as few as 10 sessions of mental training show improvements in reasoning and speed of processing skills 10 years later. This is great news! It’s like going to the gym for between five and ten weeks, never going again, and still seeing positive effects a decade later. Participants who received cognitive training also reported significantly less difficulty with daily living tasks, such as housework, medication management and shopping.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, LearningRx Warren is “Sharing the Love” by offering children and adults the opportunity to test their brain skills to determine where their brain is performing well and where it could use a tune up! LearningRx uses the renowned Woodcock Johnson III Test of Cognitive Abilities, widely considered the gold standard for evaluating a person’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses.  In honor of Valentine’s Day, the Assessment, together with a Consultation with Douglas to review the results of the evaluation, is being offered for only $199 (reg. $299; elsewhere $600-$1200). For the first time the brain training center will also give each new student who enrolls as a result of the “Share the Love” campaign a FREE Brain Skills program - a one year subscription for digital LearningRx brain training ($500 value).
