Is this your child?
Does your child have trouble learning, but you’re not sure exactly why? Is your child falling behind his or her peers in school? Perhaps your child has an IEP and is getting extra resources in school, but it’s not making enough of an impact in your child’s learning. Some children have learning disabilities that are more generalized and harder to pinpoint. If this sounds familiar, Fast ForWord Home may be the solution you’ve been looking for. It works on the underlying causes of reading and learning difficulties, which is what makes it so effective.
Some areas that Fast ForWord Home can help with include:
Language Difficulties or Delays. If your child is five years of age or older and has weak receptive (listening) or expressive (vocabulary, speech language structure, articulation) skills, Fast ForWord can help. It is important to address the underlying causes of language difficulties early, as weaknesses in language almost always carry over into reading problems later.
Delays in Executive Functions. Executive function is a higher level thinking and planning skill that is often delayed in students with processing deficits. Fast ForWord helps your child learn to complete processing tasks with automaticity (the ability to perform a task without occupying the mind with the low-level details required, so it becomes an automatic response pattern). This frees up capacity for higher level skill development. It also exercises the sequencing, working memory and processing skills integral to executive functioning.
