Sonic Learning has experienced great success in using the Fast ForWord programs with children, teenagers and adults who experience Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Aspergers.
Through fun, engaging and motivating exercises carefully designed by learning experts, the Fast ForWord programs improve auditory processing, memory, attention and expressive and receptive language skills, including grammar, vocabulary, comprehension, oral expression and the ability to follow instructions.
Does it work?
Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) often show auditory processing deficits related to language difficulties. In this study, children with ASD showed improved brain functions after Fast ForWord training.
