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.

* “I was starting a job with a new airline and my speech started to deteriorate with the stress of training. I thought I was not going to be able to make it through the rigors of the training environment and initial flying experience in a new plane with new things that had to be said on demand. Lori helped me a great deal by getting me back to the fundamentals of speaking that I knew from therapy, but was not applying them properly. After five sessions with Lori, I was able to more comfortably continue with the training process and now I am progressing well with continued practice. Lori was great at getting me back on target.” (Matt, airline pilot, adult who stutters)
