Most children who struggle with reading and comprehension have auditory processing delays that impact phonological awareness, the most critical of all reading skills.
The brain is plastic, meaning that cognitive skills will respond to exercise -- brain function, including phonological awareness, can be strengthened, often significantly, in 4-6 months.
It's a one-time program aiming to help your child avoid a lifetime of frustration.
K-12 children and adults work on Fast ForWord at home, supervised by a remote Gemm Learning professional. Students start with cognitive exercises that adapt to help your child's unique difficulties, followed by reading programs that build fluency and comprehension.
Using different cognitive, language and learning exercises, we have treatment plans to help dyslexia, central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), attention deficits (inattentive ADD), language delays, learning inefficiencies, Asperger syndrome and autism.

Gemm Learning also offers Reading Assistant software, which provides reading help using speech-recognition technology to correct errors while students read aloud.
Fast ForWord, ranked most effective out of 24 reading programs in a two-year Nevada State study, has had extensive coverage and research scrutiny, as seen here.
