I use software and apps to increase the intensity of therapy without driving up the cost.
I think Fast ForWord has been a very successful program for my daughter.
She has seen her marks start to improve and links that improvement to this program, which is wonderful for so many reasons. I think she sees that hard work and regular study habits with this program produce real results.
I have been using Fast ForWord with my 5th grade son who is dyslexic. He LOVES this program! I am very happy and so is he. The program is designed in a brilliant way that is encouraging rather than frustrating. This program has been a breath of fresh air for us and I recommend it without hesitation.
JP's comprehension jumped by 5.5 years in just 2 years. He started at the grade one level when he was 15 years old and now he is at the grade 6 level. He can read magazines, flyers and the newspaper. He understands them because of the therapy programs he has been doing with Neuroplan. I'm so proud and thankful. He is going to be 18 in a few months.
I could go on and on about what a difference this reading program has made for our 11 yr old son.
We tried one very similar and closed it after the first 5 lessons. It was a battle each time that only frustrated his reading efforts. At first he didn't want to do this new Reading Assistant......no shock...especially when he has had help in the past it ends in an angry outburst.
Dad was even reluctant! But, by the time he did his second recording (of him reading it back) he was THRILLED to see his very quick progress. Day 2? He did even better. He couldn't wait to show dad his improved progress. Day 3? The same thing. He actually is so proud of his work. I am SO thankful that we took a chance and went for it.
I cannot speak highly enough about the reading assistant program.
My very reluctant 7th grade reader made a deal with me to start on the 1st grade level and work forward. He was reading at a 3rd grade level and had zero fluency or comprehension. After just 3 months he is reading at 99 words/min and has about 80% comprehension. He is now reading at about a 4-5th grade level and we are moving along. He is still struggling with vocabulary but we are working on that as well. This program is excellent.
My son didn't want to attend summer school. Again. I was looking for a way to get him ready for grade 11. Doing Fast ForWord at home was so convenient. He could sleep in and do his programs in the afternoon. He liked it so much that he worked for 90 minutes a day and checked his progress data every weekend.
Reading assistant is amazing! My son with ADHD has improved greatly. He can find information in a selection and remember details better.
Other people have noticed that he seems more confident when it comes to details. We have tried several reading programs before and have had very poor progress.
This program really makes my son slow down and keep his attention focused on the story.
