We help learners reading below grade level quickly catch up to their peers.
We help people of all ages struggling with various types of learning disabilities (ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, etc.) to improve the language-based issues that are preventing focus, ability to take in and understand oral and written language, and rapid growth.
We help learners with dyslexia improve working memory, language foundations, and phonological processing abilities. Our program has:
Exercises to improve phonological processing
Individualized work to build phonemic awareness, phonics, and targeted decoding
Sight word recognition, vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension
Guided oral reading support to build fluency
We help English language learners quickly improve their listening, speaking, and reading skills. Most reduce or eliminate their "accent" once completing the program.
We help learners with auditory processing disorders process sounds, language, and text more effectively.
We help individuals on the Autism Spectrum develop critical language, processing, and reading skills. The Fast ForWord program is one of the fastest growing treatments for Asperger's and autism in North America today. Its adaptive technology allows students to progress at their own pace with the intensity required to rewire learning.
Whether a person was born hard of hearing or acquired deafness, we can help them learn to process speech and language to the best of their ability. Our programs are compatible with most Hearing Aids and Cochlear Implants. People with hearing loss or deafness who complete the program are able to interpret the speech sounds they are able to hear more effectively and usually transfer those skills to their spoken language abilities.
We help people struggling with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) and who have experienced strokes to build new pathways in their brain to improve language and reading abilities.
Executive functions are higher level thinking and planning skills that are often delayed in people with processing deficits. FastFast ForWord® helps automate fundamental processing and memory skills, to free up capacity for higher level skill development. It also exercises the sequencing, working memory and processing skills integral to executive functioning.
