The Science

The Neuron Learning programs are based on over 40 years of scientific research by the world’s foremost neuroscience experts.

There has been an explosion in knowledge over the last few decade about how our brains’ learn and this has been built into all the Neuron Learning Programs – Fast ForWord Language & Cognitive Enhancement, Fast ForWord Reading Development, Reading Assistant, and Kiko’s Thinking Time.

The Fast ForWord programs evolved from the work of noted research scientists Drs. Michael Merzenich and Bill Jenkins at the University of California, San Francisco, and Drs. Paula Tallal and Steven Miller at Rutgers University.

The language & cognitive enhancement you can deliver to students allows their brains to be organised in the best, most efficient way to ensure that they are ready to receive the lessons and knowledge you are delivering.

Their brains are being structured in such a way that it is able to serve as the foundation upon which they can develop and improve all academic skills such as literacy as well as numeracy.

You can improve the learning capacity of all students with the Neuron Learning programs because they develop key cognitive and language skills essential for learning & reading.

Do you want to:

  • Improve reading competency?
  • Increase literacy skills, including fluency, vocabulary and comprehension?
  • Assist English as a Second Language students?
  • Help students with auditory processing difficulties?
  • Help students overcome their learning difficulties and reach their full potential?
  • Have better student engagement and classroom behaviour

The Neuron Learning programs are neuroscience research-based tools for educators to address learning and literacy challenges in schools. They are built from neuroscience research about how students’ brains learn.
