If you’ve begun your research into brain training, and you’re wondering whether or not opening a LearningRx franchise will be the right step for you, it can beneficial to think about what impact doing so could make in the lives of students in your community. The financial aspect, the amount of time and energy, and the career path change will all mostly affect you, but the impact you can have in the lives of students of all ages will affect many. Opening a brain training center will help you grow and learn, just as it will help the students grow and learn. In this post, we’ll look at four areas where our programs and your involvement can greatly benefit a student.
A Lack of Confidence
Everyone remembers being in elementary or middle school and having that one child who seemed to know the answer to every question. Perhaps you were that student, or perhaps you were the student in the back of the room who lacked the confidence to raise your hand or volunteer to read aloud. When students are faced with new challenges, it’s common for them to lack the confidence necessary to take it head on. Our programs can help them improve their cognitive skills and feel more fearless when facing a new task or assignment, especially those in a group setting.
Less Parental Supervision
Parents are busy people, and with their job, their errands, and taking the kids to and from school and extracurricular activities, they may not have much time to help with homework. The amount of homework tends to increase as a student ages, and if they’re left to their own devices, they may not feel much like tackling that 500-word essay first thing on a weeknight. Not only can your brain training franchise give the student the skills they need to complete an assignment and remain focused throughout, it also provides a location where parents can drop their child off to receive one-on-one instruction in a safe environment. The parent can then run their errands and have time during the evening to help with homework.
Time Management Skills
This one often goes hand-in-hand with homework, and if a child lacks good time management skills, they may have to deal with falling behind their classmates. If they’re unsure about an assignment or they feel like it will take them forever to complete, they may put it off and be pressed at the last minute to get it finished. This, coupled with decreased parental supervision, can mean slipping grades and frustration in the classroom. By improving cognitive skills through brain training, they can be ready to start assignments right away and feel confident that they’ll have enough time to get to everything they need to in an evening’s time.
A student may not have slipping grades, but his or her teacher may notice some inconsistencies in their tests, quizzes, and assignments. The child might excel in reading and writing, but has trouble with math and science. They may be able to understand written instructions for a lab experiment, but spoken directions go over their head. Brain training programs can help them improve their working memory and their processing speed, which can lead to more consistent grades across the board. If a child has difficulty with a certain subject, you, as the franchisee, can pair them with the proper LearningRx program and put them on the path to success.
