          help struggling students
         
WHO:      Sandy Brimhall, Dir. of Special Services, Show Low Unified School
          District,

When Director of Special Services Sandy Brimhall arrived at Show Low Unified
School District, she noticed the district had a high percentage of students
receiving special education services. Three years later, the rural Arizona
school district showed a considerable decrease in special ed referrals and
discipline incidents, and increases in test scores and the number of students
meeting or exceeding the state standards in reading and writing.

Join Brimhall on Tues., Jan. 29 at 8 a.m. PST for a webinar to learn how Show
Low officials researched solutions and implemented the Fast ForWord® software
in all schools to build foundational reading and language skills, and address
the cognitive skills many students struggle with — memory, attention,
processing rate, and sequencing. Show Low reports that having the Fast ForWord
program as a mandated part of the RtI process has not only reduced special ed
referrals and raised test scores, but it has helped the district save money as
well.

Joining Brimhall in the webinar is Cory Armes, a senior manager at Scientific
Learning Corp. (OTCQB:SCIL), creators of the Fast ForWord family of products.
Armes holds a bachelor's degree in both general and special education and a
master's degree in special education.
