LearningRx CEO Creates Video Series to Keep Kids’ Brains Active During COVID-19 Pandemic
Fifty-six million kids have shifted their daily school lessons from the classroom to the family room due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a former elementary school teacher and mother of four, Kim Hanson knew there would not be enough curriculum to keep school children busy throughout the day. It is challenging for parent’s working from home during this time to also guide their children’s learning.
Hanson decided to create a video series filmed from her home called “Train Your Brain Tuesday.” With the help of her daughter, nephews and niece, she recorded virtual brain training demonstrations that include cognitive exercises that are both challenging and fun. The videos are 30 minutes long and focus on strengthening several brain skills at a time—from attention and reading skills, to math, remembering, processing speed, and more.
Each episode also includes at-home brain-building activities that can be downloaded for free, including the book, Unlock the Einstein Inside: Applying New Brain Science to Wake Up the Smart in Your Child. The book was co-authored by Hanson and her father, Dr. Ken Gibson who founded LearningRx Brain Training Centers that Hanson now runs.
