Help for Struggling Learners (Giveaway)

homework help
If you're a parent whose child struggles with schoolwork, you know that repeating the same explanation over and over (even if you say it louder) doesn't help! For students who continue to struggle, something has to change.

I found these study results intriguing:
The doctors discovered that creeping, crawling, exploring, examining, looking, and listening were the activities that helped to integrate the brain for reading, writing, and math later in life. So, if a child didn’t crawl enough as an infant, then he/she might not be reading well because the necessary wiring in the brain did not take place at the correct developmental stage. Not all learning problems relate to crawling, though.
But according to Learning Link Technologies, it's not too late to fix the underlying problem.  Their program can help even adults!  The company also recommends the program for all children:  a child who has no apparent learning problems will only enhance learning ability, and if there are weak spots, they can be corrected.
To correct a learning issue, you must go back and correct the deficits in the developmental process. By using brain retraining techniques, the brain can be “rewired” for proper, efficient learning.
I have not tried the program, but the company describes it this way:
The learning link neuro-sensory educational therapy program is a program which improves academic performance through non-academic means. It is an easy to follow program that parents do with their child. Delivered via an online classroom. Parents can download and print out the exercise workbooks and follow along with the videos to ensure they are executing the program properly. There are 12 levels to the program delivered on a monthly basis. Students follow along at their own pace generally finishing the program in 12 to 18 months.
And now, Learning Link Technologies is giving the online brain training system to one lucky Frugal Creativity reader!

  1. This sounds interesting. I'd like to try it. Thanks!

  2. I'd love to check this program out. We have a son who could use some extra help in retaining and studying. He is smart, but not connecting all the dots... thanks!
