Oakland, Calif. — June 16, 2016 — As another school year ends, many parents are wondering why their children continue to struggle to learn and read — despite interventions, tutoring or afterschool programs. The reason is that most reading and learning programs, including tutoring, don’t address the underlying delays that cause reading difficulties. To provide parents with a proven tool to address the root causes of their child’s reading and learning problems, Scientific Learning Corp. (OTC PINK:SCIL) offers the Fast ForWord® Home service.

“It’s frustrating when families invest their time and energy or money in an intervention, yet the child continues to struggle or falls further behind in school,” said Robert C. Bowen, CEO of Scientific Learning. “When standard interventions haven’t worked, it’s time for a more foundational approach — it’s time to boost the brain. With Fast ForWord Home, children can become better readers in just 30 minutes a day. In fact, many see results in as little as eight weeks, and improvements continue long after they complete the program.”

Fast ForWord Home is an online service that combines the award-winning Fast ForWord software with an experienced educational consultant. Fast ForWord is a computerized reading intervention that uses the principles of neuroplasticity to make fast, permanent changes to a child’s brain, which makes reading and learning in all subjects much easier. What makes Fast ForWord different from other interventions is that it works to improve the underlying cognitive foundation necessary for learning — memory, attention and processing — in a fun, engaging way. It is designed to help children pay attention longer, process information faster, and comprehend what they’re reading.

Through Fast ForWord Home, a child uses the Fast ForWord program online or on an iPad® for a minimum of 30 minutes per day, five days per week for four consecutive months. An educational consultant works with the parent throughout the process, providing weekly reports and scheduled phone calls to review progress and help with areas of need.
