This is a personal story. It’s about my grandson Dawson.
He’s in grade 4 at school. Dawson is a bright boy. Intelligence testing has put him in the 90th percentile in overall cognitive ability. But his language skills were tested as relatively weak.
He had no trouble learning to read, and he was able to understand what he read. But he wasn’t a big reader. He would read reluctantly and did not seem to get a lot of enjoyment from it.
Earlier this year his teacher reported that Dawson was reading at a level between year 3 and year 4.
So I decided, with his parents’ agreement, that Dawson should do the Fast ForWord Language program. After all, I’ve been involved in providing Fast ForWord to thousands of students via schools, learning centres and in homes. And I’ve seen the remarkable improvements this brain training has made for those students. So why not have my grandson benefit as well?
