We're Open Colorado: LearningRX helps exercise your brain for free

Posted at 6:22 PM, Apr 21, 2020

COLORADO SPRINGS — There's no arguing that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed a massive portion of our daily lives.

In the midst of these changes, many local businesses are finding ways to overcome and adapt to keep their doors open, while at the same time, help those around them.

Similarly, businesses hit hard are reporting a tremendous outpouring of support from the community.

This outpouring reminding all of us that while this global epidemic has changed so much, it HASN'T changed people's desire for community.

This is We're Open Colorado, a segment dedicated to highlighting local businesses that are still open and finding unique ways to serve the community.

With all of this in mind, let's take a look at LearningRX, an organization that works to personalized cognitive training, which is now providing a free weekly brain training session to aid parents and students who are adapting to school life at home.

The organization, which operates out of multiple states including Colorado, is currently creating and offering a free program called "Train Your Brain Tuesday."

The hope is that the program's videos will help ease parents' minds regarding "how much (or little) academic enrichment" students are receiving in a home environment.

These videos provide you with free brain-building activities to use if and when you need them, to supplement the schoolwork you are already doing with your child at home.

"There are kids that are stuck at home and so i thought, what better [thing] to do than to bring them brain training," commented LearningRX CEO, Kim Hanson.

Each new video highlights activities that can be done using primarily around-the-house items.

The program started at the beginning of April.
