Fast ForWord Language v2

The Fast ForWord Language program consists of seven exercises: three sound exercises and four word exercises. They work together to help develop an understanding of basic speech sounds as well as the fundamental cognitive skills essential for general learning and reading.

The sound exercises present complex auditory processing information in a pre-word format, including frequency sweeps, phonemes, and digitally enhanced speech sounds.

The word exercises present words either in isolation or within sentences with various levels of linguistic complexity. The words and sentences have been acoustically modified to stretch and emphasise the rapidly changing phonetic elements within natural speech, enabling improvements in auditory processing discrimination and speed.

Fast ForWord Language v2 consists of seven exercises:

Fast ForWord auditory processing game CAPD program online elebot

Ele-bot
Students feed the hungry Ele-Bots by selecting the illustrations which correctly match spoken sentences. This auditory processing and language game builds auditory comprehension skills and language structures.

Fast ForWord auditory processing game CAPD program online robo dog

Robo-Dog
Students feed the hungry Robo-Dog by listening to a word and then identifying the matching picture. This auditory processing game improves listening accuracy and word recognition skills.

Fast ForWord auditory processing game CAPD program online hoop nut

Hoop Nut
The squirrels play space basketball by shooting nuts into the hoop to select the nut which represents a sound they first heard. This exercise improves the ability to make correct distinctions based on individual phonemes (auditory processing phonological accuracy), the ability to identify and manipulate speech sounds in a quick and efficient manner (auditory processing phonological fluency), and the capacity for holding speech sounds in memory (phonological memory)

Fast ForWord auditory processing game CAPD program online moon ranch

Moon Ranch
Students help Farmer Granny move her animals from the barn and over the fence by clicking when they hear a repeated sound change. This improves the ability to identify and manipulate speech sounds in a quick and efficient manner (auditory processing phonological fluency), the ability to remain focused on a given task while ignoring distractions and refraining from impulsive behavior (sustained attention), and the capacity for holding speech sounds in memory (phonological memory).

Fast ForWord auditory processing game CAPD program online sky gym

Sky Gym
The space athlete is helped to train on the unusual equipment by students who differentiate between sweep sounds. This exercise improves sequencing skills, auditory processing and working memory.

Fast ForWord auditory processing game CAPD program online space commander

Space Commander
The space commander gives students directions to touch or move blocks. This exercise develops listening comprehension, working memory, sequencing skills and sustained attention.

Fast ForWord auditory processing game CAPD program online whalien match

Whalien Match
The Whaliens swim below the surface of the planet in formations of 4, 8 and 16. Students attempt to match spoken words by clicking on the correct Whaliens. This auditory processing game improves the student’s ability to recognise spoken words by using auditory and visual-spatial working memory to locate matching syllables.
