Fast ForWord Helps Auditory Processing Disorders
Listening and auditory processing!
Children do not choose to have poor listening skills. These children just have trouble processing what they hear so they zone out. It’s a problem in the classroom, since most classroom instruction is verbal.
Auditory processing (listening) problems aren’t related to IQ, and students do not grow out of it.
Through exercises carefully designed by learning experts, the Fast ForWord programs improve auditory processing accuracy and speed, enabling the brain to “hear” the correct words and process them quickly enough to remember the information.
At the same time, Fast ForWord improves the underlying skills of memory, attention and language, giving the student the tools needed to learn and show what they have learned.
Fast ForWord training is active, meaning the child is required to listen carefully and answer questions on the computer. While “passive” music-based programs may claim to improve auditory processing, these are often not backed by research and do not teach the student to pay attention to and remember the things they hear.
Fast ForWord Exercise Examples
Students differentiate between sweep sounds that become quicker and more similar. Improves the speed at which the student identifies and understands rapid, successive changes in sound (listening accuracy); and improves the student’s ability to hold sounds in memory.
Listen to a target syllable, then click the highlighted turntable when the target syllable is presented. This helps phonological fluency, phonological accuracy and phonological memory.
