EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATOR | ACCREDITED PROVIDERBA
I studied Psychology and Education through UNISA. I have always been interested in behaviour, especially abnormal behaviour in children.
I found the Fast ForWord programme because my own child was diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder. After years of therapy and trying everything possible, we finally started seeing major results and improvement in my child’s language skills. Fast ForWord offered my child what no other therapy sessions could. I have ever since also introduced the programme in my school where all the little ones showed improvement.
Now I can help children with learning difficulties with great confidence through the Fast ForWord programme.
