Computer based auditory processing

  • The Fast ForWord program is a computer based learning acceleration program based on over 30 years of neuroscience research,

The Fast ForWord program develops the cognitive skills that enhance learning. The strengthening of these skills results in a wide range of improved critical language and reading skills such as phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, decoding, working memory, syntax, grammar, and other skills necessary to learn how to read or to become a better reader.

The Fast ForWord program builds a strong cognitive academic language foundation. Learners experience rapid improvements in English language and literacy skills, including the essential skill of reading for meaning.

Participants work on the Fast ForWord program 3 - 5 days a week for approximately 8-12 weeks. In studies, students have experienced gains in reading skills averaging 1-2 years.

Just as a body runs better and quicker when fit, brains learn better after consistent use with the Fast ForWord exercises. The key is processing efficiency, and students around the globe, regardless of native language, are using the Fast ForWord program to develop the cognitive skills that enhance learning, leading to academic success.

  • Memory - working, short-term and long-term memory which are essential for word recognition, comprehension and remembering instructions,better retention and recall of phone numbers, event sequences, and details.

  • Attention - the ability to focus on information and tasks and ignore distractions

  • Processing Speed - the rate at which we are able to process incoming information. For reading, this is how quickly one can distinguish speech sounds and identify letters and words to create meaning. Better Listening and Understanding, including response time to questions, ability to follow the flow of conversation, and humor comprehension.

  • Sequencing - the ability to determine the order of letters within words or words within sentences.
