We’re often told that sitting in front of a computer for too long can numb your brain but for some children it could actually be a brain booster.
Thousands of Aussie students are using a computer program which is turning their lives around. So how does it work?
We’re joined by Dr Martha Burns and Deborah Richardson whose son Cameron has used the program.
“What it does is actually boosts the child’s ability to remember things better, to attend to especially auditory information better and also to process information faster,” said Dr Burns. “It’s designed for almost anyone who would like to be able to process information more quickly and efficiently.”
Cameron Biss demonstrates the Fast ForWord program. Cameron was previously diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder but after Fast ForWord training, which he undertook 50 minutes a day, 5 days a week for 6 months, he is now been able to process information correctly and in the right sequence. Fast ForWord has changed Cameron’s life, and he went on to achieve 12 As and 10 Bs in his first year of high school. Well done Cameron!
See our demonstration videos to see what Fast ForWord is like.
