It's rare that a student will refuse to do their Fast ForWord exercises. Most children are very engaged and challenged by the exercises. Learners using the program get on-screen rewards for correct responses and the exercises adapt to their individual levels. This maintains just the right level of challenge.
But occassionally a child may be reluctant to do one or more of the exercises. This may happen if they are working on the exercises at home, and not at school with a teacher encouraging them. So what does a parent do if their child refuses to do an exercise?
Watch the answer by LearnFast specialist, Heidi.

Interviewer: Let's say my child starts to do this program, and then after a week or two they go no, I'm just not doing this, and they just refuse.
Heidi: Okay. You'll have to use bribery then.
Interviewer: Bribery, okay. Do I have any other options?
Heidi: Just a lot of encouragement and praise. Tell them that this is making their brain fit, it will help them to learn and process information more easily at school, that in the greater scheme of things three or four months is a fairly short period of time.
We recommend you use sticker charts or work towards a goal. Work that out with your child. Then, once they've achieved that goal make sure they're rewarded for it. Just encouragement, the more you can make them comply and help them through.
The program does the rest. The program will do its job.
