“Her GPA at the time was approximately 1.4. She was not going to graduate from Middle School. She started Fast ForWord on March 30, 2015. In two months, when school ended, she had a 2.62 GPA. There were no other changes in her routine. Just Fast ForWord for half an hour, 5 days a week. She has had so many interventions over the years, and nothing has really made a difference. Until Fast ForWord.”
