Fast ForWord software was created by a team of linguists and neuroscientists at the Scientific Learning Company. Research on brain plasticity has proven that repetition and intensive practice produce remarkable changes in the brain. Fast ForWord products develop the cognitive skills essential for learning and reading success. On average, participants can gain one to two years of reading skills in 4 to 12 weeks of regular, consistent use. The products help bring participants to proficiency quickly by simultaneously building the cognitive skills of memory, attention, processing rate, and sequencing, along with the foundational reading skills of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.
The secret to Fast ForWord's success is that the auditory signal is slowed down. The consonants and vowels are presented at a rate that is much slower than normal. We can't do this with our human voice. It can only be done with computer technology. Once the person is successful, the rate is increased slightly, so that the person gradually works toward a normal auditory signal. Fast ForWord is unique in offering this powerful intervention.
The software is not for sale in stores. It requires the supervision of a trained professional such as a speech-language pathologist, psychologist or reading specialist. Anna Krueger at Neuroplan Treatment Services is one of the few online professionals offering a package of services which includes assessment, treatment and consultation, all from the convenience of your own home.
