Cooper Had Receptive-Expressive Language Disorder
Cooper was diagnosed with receptive-expressive language disorder. He hears information at a different rate than other children. This affected his progress in school, his social interactions, and even his self-esteem. Reading comprehension was his biggest challenge.
Cooper was unable to pass the state reading test for third grade, after two attempts, and was required to attend summer school. His reading level actually declined over the brief summer session, prompting his mother to seek advice and interventions.
A specialist recommended Fast ForWord. He began his program with Gemm Learning during summer break.
Changes Started One Month In
Cooper found the program exercises fun. He was extremely motivated and willing to put in the work. He loved the online rewards system and looked forward to his monthly points.
After only a month of working with Gemm Learning, his mother said, “It was like a light bulb going off. Things just started to turn.” By the time Cooper started school in the fall, his teacher observed that he was participating in small groups, raising his hand, and more confident. The signs of receptive-expressive language disorder were fading.
“It’s like watching a flower blossom. He’s changed so much.” – Cooper’s mother
Cooper’s reading grades eventually went from C’s and D’s to A’s and B’s.
The once quiet boy is now helping other children find Bible passages in Sunday school and chatting with children all over the world while playing Wii U.
“It’s like watching a flower blossom.” His mom said. “He’s changed so much.” She credited the Fast ForWord program for helping Cooper and continued, “I would hands down recommend it. It’s definitely worth the money to see the positive changes in your child.”
Note: Receptive-expressive language disorder is a form of language processing disorder treated by Gemm Learning.
