Children with Autism Often have Difficulty Perceiving the Differences in Sounds
You Can Improve their Attention, Memory and Language ProcessingFast ForWord is a suite of intensive programs which build the brain’s learning capacity. A child using Fast ForWord begins to make connections in his or her brain for their underdeveloped language skills.

- Improve Listing Accuracy?
- Process Information More Quickly?
- Expand Vocabulary?
- Increase Attention and Focus?
- Enjoy Learning?
- Our brain training Fast ForWord programs strengthen auditory processing, working memory, attention and sequencing — essential cognitive skills.
- And then the reading programs build reading fluency and comprehension.
- The exercises involve making hundreds of sequencing and processing decisions in quick succession with speed and complexity added at the student’s own pace.
- Every session is an intensive and engaging processing therapy.
- Poor processing hinders the capacity to learn by listening. This limits vocabulary, comprehension, pronunciation and conversational skills.
- This inefficient listening also impacts reading and writing.
- Our auditory processing treatment builds listening skills so that language can be learned through listening. It specifically builds vocabulary, language syntax and comprehension.
- 81% of children showed improvements in attention skills.
- 83% showed changes in receptive and expressive language skills.
- 60% showed improvements in speech intelligibility.
- 76% improved pragmatic skills, including eye contact.
- Overall, 77% of the children increased an average of 1.25 years in age-equivalent scores on standardised language assessment after completing the program.
