What To Expect From Gemm Learning
Our program works on underlying cognitive skills that, when strengthened, enable dramatically improved levels of reading and academic performance.
The results are different to any achieved by tutors, who most often work around cognitive glitches and focus instead on re-teaching content. Because tutoring does not change the underlying learning dynamic, gains almost by definition are modest. By contrast, gains from Fast ForWord (or in some cases, BrainWare Safari), can be profound and enduring. They become part of the learner, leading to a permanent improvement in the rate of academic progress.
Fast ForWord helps children five years and older, teens and adults, at all academic levels. Parents, teachers, researchers, and even children themselves notice marked changes:
Including participation in classroom and group activities as well as increased confidence and enthusiasm for school.
Enhanced reading skills
Including sounding out new words, better reading fluency, spelling, recollection of details and event sequence, ability to understand complex sentences, and confidence when reading aloud.

Including pronunciation, participation in conversation, vocabulary, spontaneity, and ability to stay on topic.
Listening and understanding
Including response time to questions, ability to follow the flow of conversation and multi-step directions.
Accelerated academic achievement
Including better grades due to the improvements in reading and listening, improved test taking skills such as faster processing and improved attention span, retention and recall of sequences and details, and an easier time with writing and math.
This Texas school study of the Fast ForWord program shows that 5th graders gained 12 months while on the program and an additional 14 months subsequent to completion. This is consistent with the scientific data. Fast ForWord software builds underlying cognitive skills that enable a higher level of academic achievement.
Ultimately, the gains brought about by Fast ForWord are intensely personal. While the "average gains" from scientific studies represent a wide range, the Fast ForWord program by Gemm has change the lives of countless children and adults in a very real way.
