Fast ForWord Australia
Builds the foundations of learning
Do any of these describe your child?
- Is bright but still finds schoolwork hard
- Has trouble remembering information taught in class
- Has trouble listening or paying attention
- Has trouble with reading and writing
- Doesn’t enjoy going to school
- Is exhausted at the end of the school day
- Thinks or is starting to think they are “dumb”
Our education system fails to help students who struggle but do not fall into the “disability” category. As a parent, you are your child’s biggest supporter.

Designed for students falling through the cracks
Fast ForWord is especially designed for students who are falling through the cracks. Rather than giving them more of the same thing that hasn’t been working for them, Fast ForWord is designed to improve their ability to learn by improving how they process information.

What we do guarantee is to provide you with awesome, research-backed exercises and professional support to help you progress through the programs.

Will this program also improve reading skills?
There are nine Fast ForWord programs that train the cognitive skills needed for classroom learning, the cognitive foundations for reading, as well as reading skills (see all Fast ForWord programs here).
Can I use my NDIS funding?
As these programs are delivered by health and education professionals, we can provide NDIS-friendly billing for self-managed and plan-managed NDIS participants. If you’re new to our programs you will need to enrol in our NDIS course which includes weekly consults to ensure you receive the support you need for optimal results. After the initial 3 months, you’ll also be able to access larger discounts on training extensions.
When does the course begin and end?
Your course will begin on your first training day and end 3, 6 or 12 months later (depending on your chosen package). Sonic Learning’s team will monitor and adjust your program during this time as needed. You will have unlimited access and do not need to worry about running out of exercises to do.
Can I pause my subscription?
Your subscription will begin on your first day of training and cannot be paused, but it’s ok to take up to a week’s break for every 3 months you’re on the program – just aim for 20 sessions per month for best results.
How long will I need to complete the program?
Every individual is different, so the time spent on each program will also vary. As a guide, completing the first two foundational programs required usually takes approximately 4 months, but may take somewhere between 3 and 6 months.
Can I purchase additional training time?
Yes, at the end of the initial 3 month subscription you may purchase additional training time in monthly blocks, with discounts provided for purchases of 2 or 3 month extensions.
What technology do I need?
Fast ForWord programs can be used on most Windows and Mac computers through your internet browser (we recommend Google Chrome browser), as well as on iPad with iOS 11.3 or later. Headphones are recommended to help you concentrate (we recommend stereo headphones that cover the whole ear, such as these ones from Altronics). Parents monitoring their children should use a headphone double adaptor so they can also hear the sound.
