What families say about our programs
It was such a breath of fresh air to finally be using a program that was addressing the underlying reasons as to why Jamie was struggling at school. We felt a huge weight lifted off our shoulders.
Being able to do something every day to help train the brain is important and we were keen to retrain Matilda’s brain when it came to processing sounds and words.
I like the immediate feedback that Kylah got at the end of each lesson. She could see her progress and we could celebrate her high scores and progress together.
Fast ForWord is a program that has endless patience. If it sees me struggling it slows down and it doesn’t matter how long I need, it will give me that time to grasp the concept I’m being presented with.
My husband’s progress has proved the amazing plasticity of the brain.

What age are these programs suitable for?
We have programs that are suitable for ages 3 and above. Suitability will depend on the individual’s skill level, so before you enrol our team will chat with you about your child’s needs and current skill level. To arrange a free telephone consultation, please click the button below.
Will this program also improve reading skills?
The initial program is usually focused on the cognitive skills that are essential for coping in a range of situations and also necessary for reading development. Once a student has completed these initial cognitive programs, it is appropriate to move them up to reading exercises if this type of program fits the participant’s NDIS plan goals.
Can I extend the course beyond 3 months?
Yes, at the end of your initial 3-month course you may continue at a reduced fee (current fees are $387 per month for one program or $477 per month for 2 programs, including fortnightly consultations). Extension is optional and completely up to you.
What technology do I need?
The exercises can be used on most Windows and Mac computers through your internet browser (we recommend Google Chrome browser), as well as on iPad running iOS 11.3 or later (TALi is an exception and will only run on tablets). Headphones are recommended to help the student concentrate (we recommend stereo headphones that cover the whole ear). Parents monitoring their children should use a headphone double adaptor and a second set of headphones so they can also hear the sound.
How will I be billed?
We will send you or your plan manager an invoice to pay each month until the total fee is reached. It is therefore important that you set aside the required funds in your budget so you don’t run out of funding. When you enrol, let us know if you’d like us to use the invoicing code for the Core or Capacity Building (Improved Daily Living) funding category.
