Because of my son's hearing issues as an infant, his development was slowed down and he was always just at grade level at the end of every school year. GPFPE purchased a new and innovative reading program know as F.A.S.T. not only did they purchase this program for the school district, they also paid for the training for the resource teachers. Due to this program, not only did my son read at grade level in just 8 weeks, but he was reading a grade ahead. He now loves school and better yet loves to read. I will always be grateful for this organization for providing the tools my son will use for a lifetime.
