This post is the second in a series aimed at sharing the success stories, both personal and professional, that Scientific Learning employees witness every day.
Leigh Ann’s Story:
“Hi, my name is Leigh Ann. I’m a BrainProRepresentative with Scientific Learning and I have a few stories I would like to tell today about some outcomes that have really touched my heart.
The first story I want to tell is about Henry. He’s eleven. He lives in Michigan and his mom was really very excited to tell me this story. At eleven, he couldn’t spend more than fifteen to twenty minutes reading, and a month after he started our software he spent three hours in the hammock in his backyard reading a book from cover to cover. And when he was finished he ran in the house and he goes, ‘That was fun!’ And his mom was just so thrilled when she told me that story.
There was a seventeen-year-old boy in Canada, and the Internet where they lived was not strong enough to deliver our software into the home. So he had to drive forty minutes one way to his dad’s office. So he drove an hour and twenty minutes each day. That boy’s life completely changed. His parents said he’s a different boy. He saw himself catching up to the smarter kids in class. It completely, totally changed his life.
And those are the stories, those are the things that help me get out of bed every morning and get to work with a big smile on my face and know that I’m make a big difference in children’s lives.”
