I’ve realized that hundreds of people are being directed to my site because they are looking for information on Fast ForWord, specifically, they want to know, does it work? All I can tell you is our experience of the programme. It did work for us. It’s not a cure, but it did have a lot of pretty astonishing results. I am not a provider. I do not make a commission for recommending the programme.
Two of my children have done Fast ForWord. My daughter (12) has some severe learning disabilities and Aspergers (the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum). My son (10) has no diagnoses but has borderline attention problems. I have collected all my postings about our Fast ForWord experience here for easy referral. They are in reverse chronology (most recent first) because I’m sure you’re most interested in the results.

And here are some other useful links:
If you are a parent of a child with brain issues you MUST READ this book: The Brain that Changes Itself by Norman Doidge. As a matter of fact, I recommend buying it in bulk and giving copies to your child’s school, teachers, learning assistants, doctors…
Watch a 30-minute episode of the Nature of Things with David Suzuki that highlights the book The Brain that Changes Itself and its author Norman Doidge.
I have also discovered a math programme that I think is FANTASTIC! Jump Math
Scientific Learning Company’s website (the creators of Fast ForWord)
Brain Exercises: (Free) (The first two are from scientific learning company)
If you have had an experience of Fast ForWord (good or bad) please let me know here. There are lots of parents out there that need help to make good decisions and they can’t do that without knowing other people’s experiences.
