The Center for Speech Excellence
Fast ForwordTM is a suite of computer-based therapy programs based on three decades of research by Drs. Michael Merznich, Paula Tallal and others at Scientific Learning. They have tested this program on thousands of children throughout the US and Canada. On average, after only 6-8 weeks of daily computer exercises, language-learning impaired children ages 4 and up showed improvement of one and a half to two years in speech processing and language ability. Students have shown gains of two to four years in reading skills after 8 weeks.
The Center provides the initial evaluation, web-based monitoring for home use or an in-office monitored computer lab, as well as pre- and post-testing and consultation. For more information on this innovative and successful program see our Fast ForWord page.
