Can A.R.R.O.W.® help children with speech/language problems?
Yes. Exeter University research showed that A.R.R.O.W.® improved listening, speech and language skills of children with speech and language problems at a significant level of confidence.

How does this work?
A.R.R.O.W.® encourages increased speaking and listening. These improvements cover environmental sound listening, consonant and vowel discrimination and sentence understanding. A.R.R.O.W.® has also shown that it can rapidly improve vocalisation skills and confidence to talk. The self-voice® used within the A.R.R.O.W.® speaking, listening, reading and writing approach helps develop internal thinking processes.
 

Children's Comments T.V./Radio Interviews
William - "It's good, it injects it straight into your brain. I never ever thought this would happen to me. My confidence is much better, so much easier for me to write...reading, writing and knowing how to spell words...before I found it hard, now it's quite fun."
 

Sam - "I can read harder books and spell harder words..."



Paige - "When you hear your own voice you learn a lot better..."



Parent's Comments

"A remarkable short time after starting A.R.R.O.W. his written work became more presentable, spelling problems disappeared almost totally...he was more willing to apply himself to tasks."
 

"We have noticed a great change in Martin since these lessons finished. His reading and writing have improved tremendously."

Working with Children

We believe the A.R.R.O.W.® Self-Voice ® system is the fastest and most economic way to help your child improve literacy speech and communication skills. Children from the age of 6 years love to use the system, can work unaided, and are averaging up to 10 months reading and/or 8 months spelling improvement after 7-10 hours work.

Why does A.R.R.O.W.® work?
There are many exciting features of A.R.R.O.W.® but it is the use of the child’s own voice (the Self-Voice®) linked to multi-sensory learning which is central to the undeniable success of the approach. As an extra bonus A.R.R.O.W.® material is based on the National Government  Literacy Strategies which means that it fully supports the work being undertaken at school.

How can I get A.R.R.O.W.® help for my child?
Your child’s school may be using A.R.R.O.W.® contact them and find out, otherwise A.R.R.O.W.® help can be given regionally by a qualified tutor or through a Distance Learning Program.

How long does it take?
To the best of our knowledge A.R.R.O.W.® is the fastest way of improving basic reading and spelling skills. Short training sessions are required of 20 minutes delivered 4-5 times per week. A total of 1-10 hours training (one complete program) is required to notice an improvement. It is suggested that 3-4 programs will optimise a child’s literacy performance.



Can A.R.R.O.W.® help children who don’t hear very well?

A.R.R.O.W.® began as a listening and speech tool for Hearing Impaired Children. Exeter University research showed that A.R.R.O.W.® improved listening, speech and language skills of hearing-impaired children at a significant level of confidence. Suffolk LEA based research showed that A.R.R.O.W.® trained children improved their listening skills by 18.5% whereas a control group (no training) improved by less than 1%. Somerset based research showed that even children with normal hearing, but poor listening skills, when once trained on A.R.R.O.W.®, improved their listening in background noise by almost 100%.​

How does this work?
People of all ages using A.R.R.O.W.® in fact learn to listen more effectively. This improved listening gives more confidence and proves a springboard for speech and communication improvement. These improvements cover environmental sound listening, consonant and vowel discrimination, sentence understanding and of course, listening in background noise. A.R.R.O.W.® has also shown that it can rapidly improve vocalisation skills and confidence to talk.
