Is your child or teenager struggling in school because of poor reading and writing skills? We use Fast ForWord software to provide online treatment that changes the brain.
Watch the video below to find out how Fast ForWord online software treats the source of the problems, not just the symptoms.
We all need four key cognitive skills for effective learning. They are: memory, attention, processing, and sequencing.
Here are some behaviours you might notice if your child or teenager has a weakness in these skills:
You tell your child, "colour the apples red, the tulips yellow, and the cats black." A child with poor working memory may only remember the first colour.
You instruct your teenager, “Put your backpack upstairs, bring down your laundry, start the washing machine and don't forget to clean up after your snack.” Someone with a poor working memory may forget the last step.
Instead of paying attention to you, your child might be watching what a sibling is doing. They might be looking for a noise they heard from the other side of the room. You may find them focusing on small distractions the other kids ignore.
Your teenager may misinterpret visual cues like facial expressions and gestures. This is a sign of poor visual processing skills.
Your child might be reluctant to answer your questions. This could be due to poor auditory processing skills. They may not be able to accurately notice the difference between sounds. Their brains will be busy trying to figure out what you asked them, so they can’t answer you immediately.
Children with weak sequencing skills may not be able to retell a story in a logical sequence.
Memory: Working memory allows us to remember information, an essential building block of learning. Without good recall, a child will struggle in the classroom.
Attention: Children must be able to listen to and understand information for learning to occur. Without strong attention skills, a learner's school success will be adversely affected.
Processing: The processing skill allows us to understand and put meaning to information we see or hear. Children and teens will struggle with math, handwriting, reading and comprehension if their processing ability is weak.
Sequencing: The sequencing skill allows our brain to arrange information in the right order. Learners need this skill to alphabetize, count, and organise information.
Children and teens will have a difficult time in school if one or more of these cognitive skills is deficient.
There is a well-documented program you can use to improve these essential skills. It’s Fast ForWord, the only scientifically designed and proven course that targets memory, attention, processing, and sequencing, all within every training session.
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 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.
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.
