Fast ForWord on an Apple iPad

Fast ForWord is available on the Apple iPad.

If you would like to be able to do Fast ForWord once in a while you will need to download an app for each program you are using.

Use this iPad Fast ForWord link  and choose the Fast ForWord programs you would like.  Fast ForWord Language and Language to Reading are part of the same app, as is Fast ForWord Literacy and Literacy Advanced.

If you are working on Foundations I, Foundations II or Reading Assistant Plus, no app is required. You can simply log in through the Safari App.

You will be asked to enter Gemm Learning as your “school” (choose Gemm Learning Parent) and you must be an active client for the program to work.

Trouble Logging on to Fast ForWord Online?

If you are having difficulty logging in, here are some ideas:

  • Are you online?
  • Are your Caps Lock on — that would affect your password log in.
  • Are you pressing Enter instead of using your mouse to click “Continue?”

If you are able to get to the log in, but it does not load, here are two suggestions:

  • Clear your browsing history cache — delete history under Internet Options –if you are using Internet Explorer be sure to uncheck the “Preserve Favorites website data” box at the top.  For more details on how to clear browser history click this post.
  • Try a different broswer.  If you have Internet Explorer / Microsoft Edge, try Google Chrome. You can search for the Google Chrome download on your current browser.

Using headphones after AIT

We have had several students come to us after completing their Berard AIT training.  It is my understanding that students should never listen to music with the use of headphones.  The following is a quote from the FAQ sheet of a Berard provider:

“According to Berard, if a person wears headphones to listen to music after receiving AIT, his/her hearing may return to where it was prior to receiving AIT. There have also been several clinical case reports of individuals who experienced a sudden loss of gain after wearing headphones. Berard believes that it is acceptable to listen to speech at a low to moderate level using headphones.” 

You can read the entire FAQ sheet at:

Fast ForWord uses modified speech, not music to train the brain.  Gemm Learning has never had a problem with headphones.


Please test your volume prior to starting your exercises. Volume is controlled by the device being used, not the program.
