This post is the third in a series aimed at sharing the success stories, both personal and professional, that Scientific Learning employees witness every day.
My name is Carrie. I'm a Marketing Specialist with Scientific Learning, and I have a story about Fast ForWordwith my nephew, Izaak. Back in 2006, he went to kindergarten for his first year. At the end of kindergarten, his teacher told my brother and sister-in-law that although he had a beautiful smile and that beautiful smile could get him through the third grade, it wouldn’t get him past the third grade.
He started with the Fast ForWord Language Basics program. It took him five days to get through the product and then he went in to Fast ForWord Language. Three or four days into Language Basics for Izaak, he was able to have a complete conversation with my brother and sister-in-law and my brother was just amazed that Izaak was able to actually have a conversation as opposed to short answers or short sentences.
He got through the Language program. He got back into kindergarten for his second year in the fall of 2006 and today he is at the top of his class. It’s just very, very exciting to know that these products are life changing and they can make such a difference, and I am very grateful to all the founders and the people that have made the software what it is today so that kids all over the US and the world can…have their lives changed forever.
