Parent Testimonials

“My son has been participating in the Fast ForWord program for over six months. He has issues with focusing and paying attention in class. His teacher has told us he has really improved and matured over these past months. His reading level has also gone up. The games are fun and challenging, and he really likes to play them.”

— Marsha Alves

“My son has been attending for more than 6 months. His communication skills have improved beyond what I expected! Friends and family also see his improvements. I appreciate and I am thankful for the professional staff who are making a difference in my child’s life!”

— Suzy Brambila (on Facebook)

“In February 2007, our loved one was diagnosed with Autism, and our family began the journey of transformation. We wanted early intervention in a compassionate environment with skilled professionals and cutting edge options. Aspire Speech & Learning Center satisfied all these desires. Our family feels blessed to have found this one stop service provider.”

— M. Isabel Castellanos

“Kira is a high functioning autistic child who has experienced difficulties with expressive communication, reading and writing. We live on a remote island where very limited services are available. The staff very graciously arranged a program to provide services, individualized to her needs, during the summer while we were visiting family in the area.”

— Carol Darlow

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.”

— Jeanette Newquist

“Awesome staff! Debbie is a very great therapist. So gentle and patient in teaching. I love to stay and watch so I can learn from Debbie’s teachings. They have the office set for the kids of most ages. They sometimes have coffee and treats. Very satisfied every time I leave.”
