“Our 18-year-old son was able to follow a family tree last night for the first time ever!”Eileen Bennison
“When our son was in grade one, we were told that he would likely need intensive English tutoring and that it would take him several years to catch up to his peers in reading. He had grown discouraged labeling himself as a “bad reader” and that he “just couldn’t do it.”
Marlene introduced our family to the Fast ForWord learning program. The results have been nothing short of spectacular. Only one year later, the school tested him again. This time, he was on par with his peers. Our son now regards himself as a “good reader” and spends hours on the sofa reading his books.”
“Marlene has worked with my 3 children in succession during the last 12 years. She is skillful in adapting her approach to the different needs and personalities of each child. Her warm, gentle, and positive style has resulted in lasting changes in their speech and language. I would highly recommend Marlene!”Dr. Ingrid Friesen
“Our students who use Reading Assistant have long histories of reading challenges. They desperately want to be readers, but they’re very anxious and uncertain. We use Reading Assistant to get these students on the road to effective fluency and comprehension. Once they’re on that road, they start to change quite rapidly.
The great thing about Reading Assistant is that it gives students a boost in self-esteem, which helps them realize that they can be successful readers.”Sandra Collins
“My daughter was diagnosed with a serious learning challenge in grade one. Although she had been hiding her struggles, she had started to believe she was ‘stupid’ and not as capable as the other children. We were able to put a program in place that changed her life. Although the computer program we needed was expensive, I can honestly say that I have never spent any money on anything better.
Our daughter went from having challenges with reading to being years ahead of her grade level and in love with reading.”
