How We Motivate Students and Support Parents
Apart from bringing the cost of Fast ForWord way down for families working at home, our main point of difference as a Fast ForWord service provider is our Whole Family Service approach. Our starting point was: "What can we do to make the daily ritual convenient for families?"
Part of the answer lies in taking support services to a different level, which we have done with My Gemm for parents, and Gemm City for students. Add in the always reachable presence of your dedicated Gemm professional who is watching over every click, and the weekly progress reports. The idea is to bring the support and motivation of an in center setting right into your home.
Weekly Progress Reports
At the outset you will be assigned a Gemm professional who is monitoring every click using uploads to our server, called Fast ForWord Progress Tracker. Each weekend you will receive a summary of what we see daily to help you follow progress.

Gemm City: Our Virtual Rewards Site
Students enjoy their time with us in large part due to effort we put into creating a motivational environment, which boils down to prizes, prizes, prizes! If the student enjoys the program, attendance is higher and this leads directly to better outcomes. All this happens at our rewards website, Gemm City -- check out the front page at www.gemmcity.com.
Students go to Gemm City to spend their well earned points from doing Fast ForWord. We have virtual prizes -- adopt a pet, donations, virtual rooms, auctions, sweepstakes, badges and virtual room competitions -- and hundreds of actual prizes that can be sent to your home.
Students have their own page and five virtual rooms to build and furnish. Plus they have access to the entire site, to the raffles for large prizes, auctions, and competitions. Points for spending are updated regularly based on their effort. There are also virtual badges -- gems of course! -- and other rewards to be had along the way. If your child chooses merchandise -- electronics, sports, clothing, much more -- the items are shipped directly to your home.
Recognition of Success: In center we provide tokens for meeting daily goals, stickers and other "instant prizes" for younger ones. All students are sent Completion Certificates at milestones, designed to make Gemm a fun part of your child's day.
Engaging Software: Children generally find Fast ForWord and BrainWare Safari engaging and fun to use. Both have a cool, video-game feel, both are adaptive meaning children are able to work at their own pace without fear of frustration, and both have in-built rewards to sustain student interest.
