In a nutshell, LearningRx treats the causes rather than the symptoms. Tutoring focuses on reteaching content while LearningRx focuses on why someone didn’t learn the content in the first place. LearningRx strengthens all major cognitive learning skills first before providing research-based reading or math programs. LearningRx develops all of the cognitive skill areas while tutoring solely focuses on stored information, also known as your knowledge bank. Every activity you perform uses different cognitive learning skills to process information. For example, good reading comprehension requires strong attention skills, processing speed, working memory, logic & reasoning, and visual and auditory processing. These skills are just as vital as the knowledge of reading phonetics.
