Your child’s Learning Time-Line starts with receptive language followed by expressive language, reading, reading comprehension and writing.

Your child’s ability to read starts with how their brain perceives and processes sound.

Poor listening accuracy can cause problems for your child when they are learning and reading.

The solution is to strengthen their accuracy and efficiency when listening and processing auditory information.  

This will give them a strong base for learning and help them to catch up in reading and to be confident students.

Following Directions

Space Commander gives verbal instructions to students so that they can improve their ability to follow directions in sequence and other skills such as;

  • Listening Comprehension
  • Word Structure and Knowledge
  • Colours, Shapes and Sizes
  • Executive Function
  • Memory, Attention, Processing and Sequencing.

Phonological Awareness

Robo-Dog develops auditory word recognition, phonological awareness, and vocabulary skills by identifying the picture that represents a spoken word. Skills include:

  • Auditory Word recognition
  • Phonological Awareness
  • Word Structure and Vocabulary
  • Memory, Processing, Sequencing

Listening Accuracy

Moon Ranch trains listening accuracy skills by detecting when a new syllable interrupts a repeated syllable and includes:

  • Auditory Processing
  • Phonemic Discrimination
  • Phonological Awareness
  • Working Memory
  • Sustained and Focused Attention

This exercises gets at the core of phoneme (minimal pairs/sounds) to train accurate processing.

The Fast ForWord evidence-based reading and language software uses a unique 3-in-1 approach to deliver efficient and enduring gains to all students. 

#1 READING AND LANGUAGE SKILLS –  with Fast ForWord, each student receives adaptive, intensive practice on a wide variety of language and reading skills — more than any other approach or intervention. Intensity is the key to getting far better results quickly.

#2 COGNITIVE SKILLS – Fast ForWord improves the cognitive skills that are weak in struggling learners’ brains (memory, attention, and processing speed). These skills are the building blocks of reading and of all learning.

#3 SOCIO-EMOTIONAL LEARNING The design behind Fast ForWord fosters SEL skills that learners need in order to succeed. With stronger confidence, self-management and self-esteem, learners grow ready for school and learning.


Rapid student gains that last: When used consistently, Fast ForWord can help students attain 1–2 years of reading growth after just 40–60 hours of use.

“This programme really works! We signed our 10 yr old son and saw changes within a couple of weeks. His comprehension, attention, memory and articulation all improved and we are now doing the Reading Fluency Course as well, which he really loves.”
