Brodie & Dyslexia - More Success after Fast ForWord

Posted by Peter Barnes on October 24, 2014 at 11:20 AM

Dyslexia Fast ForWordBrodie is an 11 year old boy whose struggles with dyslexia were severely impacting his self confidence, until he did the Fast ForWord program to improve his reading. 

After he competed the online neuroscience based program at home, he found reading much easier - he was able to read Harry Potter books for the first time - and he regained his previous happy, outgoing personality.

He also found that his memory was much better, thanks to the Fast ForWord exercises that develop working and long term memory.  He learnt Pavarotti’s "Nessun Dorma" by heart for a school performance.

Brodie's self confidence was so much better that he entered a speech contest in his school district and was chosen as a candidate in his school's mock elections for Prime Minister. The speech contest included children from 5 local primary schools.

Brodie, alias ‘Johnny Depp’ did so well that he got to the finals.

His grandmother, Heather, says "It was wonderful to see him with the confidence to prepare and deliver a speech".
