Brodie & Dyslexia - How Fast ForWord Helped His Reading and Confidence

Posted by Peter Barnes on September 26, 2014 at 3:08 PM

Dyslexia help"I woud never have begun to imagine that he could make progress on the scale that he has. It 's been absolutely incredible".

That's Heather Walker, grandmother of Brodie, an 11 year old severely dyslexic boy, describing the extraordinary improvements that the Fast ForWord program made to his reading.

Brodie had quite a lot of speech therapy support and had worked on a spelling program, but nothing had helped. He was a cheerful, outgoing boy but his struggles with dyslexia were impacting his self confidence.

After investigating how else they might be able to help, Heather and Mary, Brodie's mum, decided to have him use the Fast ForWord brain training and reading development programs. These programs are particularly effective for dyslexic children because they work to simultaneously build the fundamental thinking and language skills necessary for reading.  And they have numerous research studies confirming their effectiveness.

Watch Heather and Mary describe the changes Brodie got from using the Fast ForWord programs for 6 months, including how he is now reading Harry Potter novels, and how his confidence has improved.
