hi ctct61t,
I'm not sure if they have, maybe not bcos I dun see big kids around. Last time I know a mummy that did send her kid for the P1 class. My dd1 stopped class at 6 and dd2 has stopped recently. I think they benefitted and time to move on with other things :)


hi petegrin, thanks a lot... have checked with them, it seems that they did not offer lesson for big kids...

I enrolled my daughter into shichida from a very young age and basically my feedback is that the concepts are interesting but they seem far more concerned about their P&L than they do anything else. It seems far more about making money (its the same operator in both places).

With my daughters - we did shichida at the start and moved to some glen doman. Its hard to say what works best - i am entirely skepical about shichida because the boss lady here made claims that were impossible however because its your kid you are more tempted to believe and pay her the money.

After doing all those courses my 5 year old can read well, speaks some chinese and Indonesian and understands quite a bit, she is good at math thanks to CMA, and musical. I don't thank her 1 year at shichida for that.

Found this very old post about shichida.

Could anybody please explain how speed reading is taught in shichida class? And how the home practice is done? Tried to search it from internet, but seems have very little info about the detail instruction.

Hello, I am a Shichida mummy of a 31 month old boy. Wondering if there are any Shichida parents here who would like to share about their home practice? Hopefully we can motivate each other!

At Tensai in KL (where we're based), there are 2 groups of linking memory sheets: larger cards for 2-year old and smaller cards (with CD narration) for older children. My 2.5 years old is doing the smaller cards, 10 at a time. He loves doing LM a lot. I think it helps develop his memory and language skills very well. For 5-6 year old, you can use the same set too. When completed, you'd need to start making your own cards or exchange with other parents.

@ pinkiepirate: Keep doing home practice, it'd all be worth it by the time your boy goes to Primary School. For me, I'm motivated that with at least photographic memory and speed reading skills, my boy would be able to learn efficiently and spend a lot of time on his areas of interest, and enjoy his life. When he works, the same efficiency will enable him to have a good work-life balance. Feel free to read my blog posts on our home practice at http://www.mummysreviews.com/2011/09/16 ... onths-old/

MieVee - hello! nice to "meet you". Yes, we are a serious Shichida family! We have been applying the method since Ryan was about 8-9 months old, and it works for us, with great results. I will visit your blog -thanks for sharing!

Great! I just read many of your posts. Our boys are about the same age, mine's Feb, yours is Jan. Exactly... Shichida parents who do home practice will really see the benefits. And I agree with what you mentioned on a post: the method's core is on the parents and SM is indeed a parenting philosophy (I mentioned this in a blog post too! Ha!)

"See" you around! :)
