Children Teenagers Adults Fast ForWord in Schools
Jamie, 11 years old, Tasmania
“Fast ForWord has fit so seamlessly into our lives. Jamie has had such fantastic improvements over the last 3 months in his communication, attention and enthusiasm. We are really impressed with the results.”
– Jamie’s Mum, Claire
Kylah, 8 years old, Western Australia
“It seems like a really big task in the beginning, but it is amazing to be here at the end of the year of Fast ForWord and see the results!”
In this interview, Kylah’s mum Cara explains why she decided to enrol Kylah in the 3 step reading program, describes their experience and provides tips for other parents.
Rosie, 9 years old, Western Australia
“Rosie’s teacher at school has attributed her outstanding improvements to the Sonic Learning Fast ForWord program.”
We spoke to Toni, Rosie’s Mum, to learn about her experience with the 3 Step Reading Program over the past 18 months.
Pippa, 5 years old, South Australia
We have seen the benefits!
We had a chat with Pippa’s Mum Bernadette about the benefits she has seen from the Fast ForWord Program within the first two months of training and the achievements that Pippa has made.
William, 5 years old, South Australia
“On top of all the amazing neuroscience that is embedded in the program, a major reward for William is that he learnt to apply himself to his learning and that hard work and perseverance is necessary to achieve results.”
Asha, 9 years old, Western Australia
Auditory Processing Difficulties, memory, reading and spelling
Asha’s Mum recently submitted a Fast ForWord program review explaining why she placed her daughter on the program and the results she achieved.
Sophia, 7 years old, Western Australia
Auditory Processing and reading difficulties
We’re thrilled with Sophia’s progress! After only 3 months of Fast ForWord training, she has made huge improvements in her learning, memory, concentration and behaviour. She is a lot more confident now and is showing much greater willingness to try at school and not give up.
J, 7 years old, Western Australia
“This week J went up a level in his reading at school and wanted to read all of his reading books for the week in one night! My J never wanted to read or was reluctant to want to try and read 1 book a night. Last night, he even wrote a story with some words spelled correct!
Although this program has been to complete with 2 other small children in the house, it has been amazing to see such a huge change. All the hard work is now showing! Thanks so much. This program has helped to give me so much more information and knowledge about his abilities.” – J’s mother
Harry, 8 years old, Western Australia
Struggled with reading and writing
Since finishing the program, Harry’s reading and spelling abilities have improved. He is less frustrated and his confidence and ability to give things a go has increased in relation to his school work. Motivating Harry could be hard at times but Sonic Learning provided lots of ideas and strategies to help him along. It was great being able to do the program at home, seeing the results each week and seeing the success Harry was having with the games. It was a bit like magic – the games seemed so simple but their effects were like miracles!
Joe, 7 years old, Western Australia
If you make the training a priority now, you will reap the rewards for life!
Angus, 7 years old, NT
Autism Spectrum Disorder
“This program held my son’s interest while we saw a very large improvement with skills.”
Ethan, 6 years old, South Australia
We are really pleased with Ethan’s progress through Fast ForWord and in fact, we’ve noted some improvement that we’d like to share with you. About 3-4 weeks back, he suddenly spelt some words on route to school and was doing that throughout our 25 mins’ drive to school. That was the start.
Benjamin, 11 years old, Queensland
Struggled with reading
Benjamin’s reading has just come forward amazingly … not even just his improvement, but his will now to read. He had no desire whatsoever to put pen to paper whereas now he’s sat there at work and written little poems … we’re very very happy.

Pierce, 7 years old, Western Australia
Auditory Processing Disorder
Since finishing the program Pierce has improved in many ways. He is now very focused and continues on a task until the end, he follows instructions and only needs to be asked once. His teacher reports that his listening, spelling and reading have greatly improved. He really is a different child.
Aidan, 8 years old, South Australia
Asperger's, ADHD and reading difficulties
Before Fast ForWord, Aidan’s reading skills were quite poor and now he is the best reader in his class.
Leo, 9 years old, South Australia
We are 8 weeks into the program and have already seen some good results.
J (9 years) & H (11 years), South Australia
Short term memory, spelling, concentration and motivation
Overall J loved doing the program and was always eager to do it, I saw his confidence grow and I saw his work at school improve and he enjoys school more!
Jacob, 5 years old, Queensland
Diagnosed with Autism
Since starting the Fast ForWord program Jacob’s ability to concentrate and process has improved. He is much calmer and is having less frequent meltdowns.
Morohni, 5 years old, Queensland
Dear Sonic Learning,
Just to keep you informed on the miracle that has happened in Morohni’s life since completing Fast ForWord.
Cassidy, 9 years old, Queensland
Cassidy’s language is severely delayed and probably that of a 2-3 year old. Since beginning the Fast ForWord program, however, she is able to answer questions such as ‘What did you do at school today?’ The answers are very short but, with prompting, we are able to get some information. For example:
Nicole, 10 years old, Western Australia
Auditory Processing Disorder
Nicole was diagnosed with an Auditory Processing Disorder when she was in Year 3. Her progress at school was behind her peers and I knew she could do better. She completed the Fast ForWord course the following year and her schoolwork is really improving.
James, 9 years old, Western Australia
I doubt any parent would feel good hearing that their child had a learning difficulty. We all felt helpless, so the opportunity to do something constructive was greatly welcomed. Fast ForWord exceeded our expectations, and I would recommend other parents to prioritise this form of therapy, if it is suitable for their child.
Michael, 10 years old, Queensland
High verbal IQ, but struggled with reading and spelling
Fast ForWord is worth every dollar when you compare it to other options and considering how fast you can actually see a change.
FR, 8, Western Australia
Lagging behind in his spoken and written language
FR’s writing and spelling has improved so much that he now spells at the level of a 10 and a half year old – and he is only 8!
N, 12 years old
We have noticed many improvements in N’s skills but none more so than his reading – we can’t keep up the books, and he feels so confident and capable. The support and information that came from Sonic each week was extraordinary.
Chenae, 9 years old, Western Australia
Reading problems, difficulties understanding verbal instruction
My husband and I are amazed that such a simple program can make such big changes! Before Fast For Word, we would have to repeat instructions and explanations over and over. Now, we are blown away by what she is remembering.
Lachlan, 9 years old, Queensland
The most pivotal moment for us this year was finding Lachlan on his bed one night reading a book, independently. We were so happy that we took a photo and sent it to his grandparents.
Oliver, 6 years old, Queensland
I really wanted to tell you how much Oliver has improved at school. I am just floored at how quickly he now learns his sight words.
Skye, 8 years old, Queensland
ADHD and literacy difficulties
The change we saw in my daughter’s literacy development was very comforting. She now has positive strategies towards solving problems, stronger self-esteem and an overall positivity towards reading. Thanks Fast ForWord!
Harris, 9 years old, Western Australia
Harris is now in year 7 and his test results are around the 80% mark. Before we couldn’t get Harris to read anything and now he takes a book with him when he goes out. It’s nothing for him to be reading 3 novels at a time.
Max, 11 years old, Western Australia
Bright frustrated learner
Max participated in a cognitive training program called Fast ForWord and I couldn’t have imagined how much it would help him. His teacher has noticed a huge improvement in his behaviour, his ability to follow instructions, his capacity to keep up in class and his grades are a lot better. He’s a different boy altogether in that he’s happy to go to school and we’ve noticed a big improvement in his self-esteem.
Hamish, 11 years old, South Australia
Glue ear and undiagnosed learning difficulties
“And suddenly a miracle. My son, who previously couldn’t remember more than two digits at a time, can suddenly remember my ten digit phone number – and we haven’t even tried to teach him, he has taught himself.”
“And another miracle. A speech therapy assessment which included APD aspects has put him within the normal range for his age.”
Read this blog post by Hamish’s mother describing her family’s experience with Fast ForWord.
Gemma, 8, Western Australia
ADD and sensory difficulties
We have seen improvement in her social skills as well as with her sensory issues with clothes and her attitude at school has improved immensely.
Payton, 11 years old
Autism, APD & ADHD
This case study is from our American colleagues, Gemm learning.
Payton was diagnosed high functioning Autism and ADHD a few years ago. He hated going to school … I can’t tell you how many times he would wake up in the morning and cry – that would break my heart. I knew we needed to find something that was going to help him keep up at school. He one day just picked up a book, a chapter book of all things, and asked if he could read to me … he’s happy and smiling … he’s ventured into things that I never thought he would have an interest in.
