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.
