Reduce frustration, enhance self-esteem and improve behaviour

When a student is falling behind in the classroom, they feel overwhelmed. Learning frustration can have a big impact on their behaviour and their long term perception of themselves.

Learning frustration can present in a number of ways, including behaviour problems, low self-esteem, resistance to home work, distractibility and difficulty following directions. Cognitive training programs make learning easier and can improve behaviour and self-esteem.

Through fun, engaging and motivating exercises carefully designed by learning experts, the Fast ForWord, Cogmed and Reading Assistant programs improve learning skills: auditory processing, memory, attention, comprehension, reading, spelling and writing and the ability to follow instructions.
