Improving Learners’ Auditory Processing Rate
Did you know that processing speech sounds is the single fastest thing your brain does? Auditory processing is the ability to decipher small changes in sound — not by your ear, but by your brain. When a brain doesn’t process sound quickly enough, a variety of language and reading difficulties can arise. This seemingly simple, yet foundational ability is a significant predictor of language and reading difficulty, as early as 6 months of age.
Improving Auditory Processing Speed in the Context of Language and Reading Exercises
Fast ForWord was developed by neuroscientists to help students with auditory processing disorders improve their auditory processing and sequencing skills.
- Adaptive exercises train the brain to process subtle differences in sounds
- Personalized for 80% success, 20% challenge rate for optimal improvement
- Sound training is in the context of grammar, vocabulary, and reading exercises: sounds are stretched and amplified for easy discrimination
