Building a better basketball player?

A student we are working with recently wrapped up his 6th week with Fast ForWord Language. His mom reported on his progress:

1.  His memory has improved.  Given 4-5 sentence short story, he is able to answer questions about the story without too much frustration recalling what was read.  
2.  He is motivated to improve himself when working with the different exercises.  He has better understanding what he needs to do and he feels proud when he gets a higher score.
3.  He has acquired more awareness with his surroundings.  He is a bit more involved and more interactive in his play with siblings and his desire to communicate is increased.  Yeah-hey!!!
4.  Last night was his first basketball practice and Dad said that he was very attentive listening to the coach for directions.  Last year, he was very distracted and mainly focused on the lines, rails and the lights in the room.

You know, test scores and quantitative improvements are important. But if we can improve basketball skills, we might really be on to something here!

UPDATE: The same student just finished Fast ForWord Language. Mom says:

He was indeed very proud to finish the program and can’t wait to learn more.  His self confidence is definitely lifted.  He uttered phrases such as: “This is easy to me, Mom.” “I can do it myself.” and “I don’t need help.”  These phrases are music to my ears.

Again, we cannot thank you enough.
