Helping Learners with Dyslexia Become Proficient Readers
Dyslexia is now recognized as a primarily auditory disorder, with weaknesses appearing specifically in phonological processing. Many reading intervention programs help learners compensate for these difficulties by working around the issues. Fast ForWord takes a different approach — it aims to “rewire” the brain for reading, targeting the issue directly, and starting with the brain’s most foundational abilities. fMRI data from Stanford shows how Fast ForWord helps learners with dyslexia improve a range of language, cognitive, and reading skills.
