Fast ForWord FAQ # 16 - What Happens When My Child is Finished?

Posted by Peter Barnes on December 12, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Fast ForWord ProgramStudents do their Fast ForWord brain training program for at least 3 months, 5 days a week. Some children will take longer - up to 5 or 6 months depending on the development of their individual brains. This is because everyone's brain is unique and different from all other brains, according to Dr Michael Merzenich, one of the neuroscientists who developed the online brain training and reading programs.

Parents who have seen the positive changes in their children after their time working on the exercises, often ask if there are other Fast ForWord programs that can extend the gains.  In an interview about this and other frequently asked questions from parents,  LearnFast specialist, Heidi, gave the answer.

Prefer to read the video transcript?  Here it is.

Interviewer:   Let's say the child has been going through the program; they get to the end of the three months subscription. What happens after that? Do they need another assessment? How does that work?

 Heidi:  You don't actually need an assessment. Anyone can benefit from Fast ForWord. We would look at your child's progress. Now, sometimes there is the opportunity to go on to a reading module. It's a good way to follow up with the core foundation program. The characters and content are very different, so children often enjoy this new challenge in the reading module. If your child's been working really hard over the three month period, they'd probably benefit from a break. You can always come back to it at a later date.
