How much improvement do students make?

The extensive Fast ForWord research shows, on average, that a 1 – 2 year gain can be achieved in reading and learning skills in a 3 month period of Fast ForWord training. Every student is different and individual gains vary. Sonic Learning’s team of health and education professionals will work with you to ensure that your child is placed on a program appropriate for them. We’ll then help you support your child so they can receive optimal benefit from the program.

Can adults benefit from Fast ForWord training?

The most amazing and inspiring discovery by neuroscientists in the last three decades is that it is never too late to change your brain. Adults can benefit from auditory processing, reading and memory programs just as much as children – as long as the programs are well designed and administered in the right way.

Will my child need to repeat the program in the future?

The Fast ForWord course is a three month commitment, with the option to continue with further extension exercises if you choose to do so. It is not necessary to repeat exercises that have already been completed however, as the neuroscience research indicates that if the program is used frequently as intended, it creates lasting changes in the brain. To keep up the gains made, students need to keep listening and reading – which fortunately happens every day at school!

Will my child enjoy the exercises?

The Fast ForWord exercises have been designed by game experts and are designed to appeal to children and teenagers. Most children and teenagers enjoy Fast ForWord (particularly if they see it as an alternative to pen and paper exercises!). Some children have volunteered to do three training sessions in one day!

The exercises contain lots of built in rewards, animations and motivational tricks that are always changing, and they adapt to the student’s individual level meaning they are never too easy or too hard. You’ll also have 24 hour access to the motivational resources in the member’s area of our website and you can contact our health and education professionals any time.
