LearningRx – San Antonio Northwest Shares The 2021 Smart Family’s Toy Box With 10 Classic Games, Books, And Toys To Boost Brain Skills Without Breaking The Budget

Published

on

It’s tempting to go over budget at Christmas, especially when it comes to kids. After all, they already have more “stuff” than their parents did at their age, and the pressure to buy them the latest and greatest technology can feel overwhelming.

“But there are compromises – for our wallets and our guilty consciences – if we know what we’re doing,” says Whitney Meyer of LearningRX San Antonio Northwest

Lynne and Whitney Meyer together own and operate LearningRx San Antonio Northwest. Both of them are Board Certified Cognitive Specialists and experts in the field of cognitive skills training.

Lynne Meyer is a retired reading specialist and administrator for more than 25 years, and her biggest frustration was seeing students who struggled, no matter how much extra support they were given. So, she took it upon herself to learn about how the brain processed information and discovered that if a student has weak cognitive skills, all the re-teaching she did would only make a small difference.

While her daughter, Whitney Meyer, was starting her M.A. in Educational Psychology, she discovered LearningRx cognitive training. She became a certified cognitive skills trainer for LearningRx in 2009 and has since helped hundreds of students and their families overcome learning struggles associated with ADHD, dyslexia, learning disabilities, and even traumatic brain injury.

“Here is the list of games in the “2021 Smart Mom’s Toy Box” that can boost these cognitive skills and are affordable classics that won’t push your gift buying ideas over budget that LearningRx – San Antonio Northwest recommends,” says Whitney.

Whitney also explains, “How these simple toys, when used properly, can help develop complex learning skills. Cognitive skills—like attention, auditory and visual processing, memory, logic & reasoning, and processing speed—are essential tools that help kids become better learners. Research now shows that learning skills can be trained – and therefore improved.”

  1. Alphabet Blocks or Scrabble Tiles ($6.99 on Amazon)
    “Help develop analysis skills by using alphabet blocks to make up nonsense words starting with two to three blocks (or tiles). Pick a vowel and a consonant and create a nonsense word, then have the child remove one of the blocks and add a new one while verbally trying to figure out what the new nonsense word sounds like. Great consonant sounds to start with are /b/ as in cab, /m/ as in ram, /t/ as in cat, /k/ as in duck, /p/ as in cup. Start with four basic vowel sounds, /e/ as in Ed, /i/ as in it, /o/ as in on and /u/ as in up.”

“If they can’t read, just say the sounds for them and ask them to try to figure out from hearing the sounds what the new word would sound like when they switch the blocks. This builds phonemic awareness through sound blending and segmenting. And because this exercise is about sounds, not letter knowledge, parents should work with basic sounds and not use letter names, which can be confusing.”

  1. LEGO Bricks ($37.90 on Amazon)
    “Use these building blocks and the accompanying pictures of completed projects to increase attention, logic, reasoning, and visual processing. In addition, parents can use a stopwatch to encourage a fast completion, which increases processing speed.”
  2. How-to-draw Books ($7.99 on Amazon)
    “These simple books are great for visual processing, attention to detail, and planning. They are available for a wide range of ages and skill levels.”
  3. Speed Stack Cups ($10.99 on Amazon)
    “This fun, simple game is good to build speed, planning, and eye-hand coordination.”
  4. Old Maid ($3.95 on Amazon)
    “Spread cards out face down and have children draw two at a time, looking for matches. Cards that don’t match are put back in the same location. This builds memory and attention.”
  5. Jigsaw Puzzles ($14.99 on Amazon)
    “Math, science, test-taking, and reading comprehension all require visualization skills. Puzzles are great tools to develop visual discrimination and logic, and reasoning. Puzzles also help build attention skills and come in a broad range of sizes, shapes, and designs—from a handful of pieces to advanced 3D puzzles.”
  6. Playing Cards ($6.50 on Amazon)
    “Time children while they sort cards into red and black piles, then challenge them to do it in a shorter time. Then make it more challenging by sorting them into three piles: red, black, and face cards. Keep raising the level of intensity by asking them to do it faster and by adding challenges, such as having them count by 2s or 3s while they’re sorting. This provides an excellent way to build divided attention and processing speed.”
  7. Simon ($19.82 on Amazon)
    “With this sound and light mimicking game, children can increase their sequential processing, short-term memory, attention, and visual processing.”
  8. Soduku ($7.99 on Amazon)
    “Available for children and teens of all ages, this numbers puzzle can strengthen deductive and intuitive reasoning, numerical fluency, planning, problem-solving, working memory, and sequential processing.”
  9. Chess ($10.88 on Amazon)
    “A classic brain game, chess helps with divided attention, executive processing, logic and reasoning, planning, and problem-solving.”

Both Lynne and Whitney Meyer emphasize how San Antonio’s Northwest LearningRx programs are designed to eliminate the cause of an individual’s learning challenge(s) instead of accommodating or compensating for the symptoms.

“Unlike tutoring or computer-based programs that focus on academic content, LearningRx provides targeted cognitive training that improves the brain’s ability to process information. LearningRx training attacks the root problem of learning difficulties by targeting the underlying cognitive skills required to pay attention, remember, and perform”, Whitney stated.

Lynne added, “LearningRx Brain Training works on the brain’s cognitive skills to think, read, learn, remember, and pay attention. How they work on those skills makes us unique in the industry: Their clients work face-to-face with personal brain trainers, doing fun, challenging mental exercises that improve core brain skills, including auditory processing, memory, logic, and more. While many of their clients are children who are struggling in school, they serve children and adults of all ages. Brain training is life-changing.”

LearningRx San Antonio Northwest has received numerous 5-Star Reviews on Google and Social Media Platforms from both the parents and the students.

Interview with Michael Wright, Insurance Agent with Trailstone Insurance Group About Bringing Customers the Best Options for Insurance

Published

on

Michael Wright discusses his approach to bringing his customers options for their insurance. Insurance is an essential part of protecting families; Asset and Liability Protection is the surest way to preserve wealth.

Trailstone Insurance Group is an independent insurance agent that represents multiple insurance companies. They are not locked into just one insurance company, which allows them to find the best options for coverage and the best pricing available. There is no charge to use their service; the insurance carriers pay them. 

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network

https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/interview-with-michael-wright-insurance-agent-with-trailstone-insurance-group/

Wright commented, “With a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado Denver where I studied Risk Management and Insurance and an insurance claims handling background, I bring a unique perspective to my clients. I can guide them in making decisions to protect them from mistakes I have seen firsthand from past claims. Having this ability saves my clients money and worry, allowing me to be their Personal Trusted Advisor.”

Having access to over 25 insurance companies means when rates go up with one company, Trailstone has the ability to move their clients’ insurance to a better option…in fact, they have an entire department in their agency focused on just renewals and finding the best coverages!

Dave Ramsey has endorsed Trailstone Insurance Group. Wright commented, “It took us years to pass Dave’s vetting process. We had to prove to Dave’s team that we have the “Heart of a Teach” in our selling approach with our clients. This means we put your needs first before ours or the insurance carriers. Insurance agencies cannot purchase Dave’s endorsement, and it must be earned. Also, if our customers are not happy with our service, we will lose “The Dave Ramsey Trusted” endorsement. To make sure we are continually improving, Dave’s team does monthly training with the leadership here at Trailstone Insurance and asks for feedback directly from our customers.”

About Michael Wright

Michael likes to refer to himself as a Colorado Native, but technically he is not. He was born in the Midwest and relocated to the Denver Metro Area shortly thereafter, where he met his wife, Kelsey. Colorado has a lot to offer, and it was truly a blessing to grow up on the Front Range.

The move to Colorado led to many great life experiences. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Colorado Denver, where he studied Risk Management and Insurance. The opportunity in the aging industry is what led him to the decision for his academic studies. From there, he found an opportunity for a Claims Handling position with a national insurance carrier here in Denver. From auto to property to business claims, he is versed in the intricacies of what can be seen as a complex process. He is passionate about helping my clients protect their assets through insurance and helping them navigate any hurdles that may arise.

About Shannon Riley

Shannon grew up in Evergreen, where she was fortunate enough to spend most of her days soaking up as much of the Colorado wilderness as possible. Skiing, fishing, camping, hunting, four-wheeling, you name it! She was raised a mountain girl through and through. Her favorite thing about where she grew up is the people. You can’t go anywhere in Evergreen without receiving a warm smile from a passerby. She has been immersed in the world of insurance all her life. Following in her mother’s footsteps, she started in the insurance industry while still in high school as a part-time office assistant. There she was able to get her feet wet and start learning the ins and outs of the industry. Once she graduated high school, she jumped headfirst into her insurance career and hasn’t looked back since. During these last 14 years, she has enjoyed working with several different carriers & agencies, both captive and independent, in both personal and commercial lines. After years of searching, she found Trailstone Insurance, an agency that operates with integrity, moral values, and ethical principles. She is extremely proud to be a part of the Trailstone family and feels truly blessed that she is able to share this service with everyone she comes into contact with.
