| Read: Justin's Story: 16 Years Old|
"After LearningRx, Justin stopped taking medication for ADD, is eating normally for a teen, and isn't wired at night like he used to be. His grades are heading upwards instead of down and he is doing it by himself! It was like his learning capabilities were locked in a room for which we had no key. We are thrilled with his success and only wish that we had known about LearningRx many years ago."
Thank You for your Support!
