Fast ForWord

Fast ForWord is a computer based online reading intervention program that dramatically improves reading, spelling and language.

How can this program help your child? Auditory Processing?
It can help them focus in school, follow directions and improve reading. This program differs from others in that it strengthens the key pathways in the brain that help children learn. It helps them pay closer attention to their teachers, absorb information faster and improve memory skills. It improves auditory skills. Does your child have difficulty hearing sounds? Are they a slow reader? Are they forgetting homework? If yes, this program might be for them.

The Fast ForWord program develops and strengthens memory, attention, processing rate and sequencing. These are the underlying essential skills needed for reading success. Strengthening these pathways results in improved phonemic awareness, language, vocabulary and other skills necessary to become a proficient reader.

Fast ForWord is appropriate for children ages 4 and up. It can also be used by adults struggling from deficits in reading, language and auditory (listening) skills. An evaluation is necessary to assess if you or your child is appropriate for this program.

* “All Island Speech and Lori Melnitsky are definitely in the vanguard when it comes to offering direct-approach methods for treating disfluent speech – particularly in young children –  as evidenced in her work with our preschool-aged son who stutters. She was able to perform her magic through endless age-appropriate activities and games to keep him engaged both at home with us and in sessions at her office while delivering the Lidcombe Program, which has resulted in significant improvement in both our son’s speech fluency and clarity of speech. Lori definitely knows what she’s talking about and has a very caring and thoughtful way about her, backed by her years of experience as a speech therapist and as a parent herself, as well as by her own experiences as someone who overcame a severe speech disorder. If you are serious about treating speech disfluency no matter the age or degree, you could do no better than to choose All Island Speech. THANK YOU, LORI!!”(Parents of a 5 year old preschool child, NYC, 2018)
