Fast ForWord FAQ # 4 - What if we go on Holidays?

Posted by Peter Barnes on September 3, 2014 at 9:34 AM

Fast ForWord Program

What happens if a child's Fast ForWord program is interrupted by holidays, illness or school camps? Parents often ask what happens when they go away on holiday, and their child does not have access to the computer at home.

The most benefit from the neuroscience based exercises is obtained when the child sticks to the recommended usage - 30 minutes a day, for 5 days a week until the program is complete. So is missing some days a problem?

Watch LearnFast specialist, Heidi, explain in this short video.

 Prefer to read the video transcript? Here it is.

Interviewer:  Let's say I'm going on holidays, or I get really sick, or I have to go away on a school camp or something like that. How would I as the learner stay in touch with the program? Is that a problem?

Heidi:   Well, first of all, now that the program is online, unless you're camping in the middle of the wilderness somewhere you should have access to Internet. Most of the time you'll be able to continue doing the exercises while you're on holidays.

Obviously, that's not going to be possible in a school camp situation. So, yes, it's okay if your child misses a few days here and there. Compliance is important to get the maximum benefit, but there are going to be days due to sickness or those sort of things that you will miss a few days.

But, you have paid for a continuous period of time, so we do try and stick to that as much as possible.
