Reading Programs For Adults
Gemm Learning uses research based Fast ForWord software, to get to the underlying cause of reading difficulty, once and for all. It's an amazing series of programs, backed by over 250 research studies and 55 patents, that has helped over one million struggling readers in 40 countries.
Gemm is seeing great results from Fast ForWord. Most adult reading programs are basically automated instruction, more of what did not work at school. Fast ForWord is different. It treats the underlying problem, using powerful brain fitness exercises.
How brain fitness training helps reading
Most adults complete our reading programs in 3-4 months, in three phases, moving up the pyramid:
- Build Cognitive Foundation
For most struggling adult readers, or adults with dyslexia, processing and/or memory -- cognitive skills -- is where the source of their reading troubles lie.
Fast ForWord identifies and exercises these skill gaps and gets adult students to where they need to be for successful reading.
- Make Reading Easier
The next set of exercises trains reading speed and efficiency, the goal being to make reading easier, less exhausting. There are also vocabulary, language structure and other exercises to make the text more familiar, and therefore easier to read without having to re-read all the time.
- Develop Reading Comprehension
The end goal of our adult reading programs is to eventually build reading comprehension toward college level. Our program uses a natural learning approach to help adult readers develop the reading strategies required to be able to read any book, with good comprehension.
In most cases, adult reading difficulties are treatable. By strengthening processing and memory skills, our clinical strength reading programs make reading automatic, like riding a bike. If you can read effortlessly, your comprehension will improve -- you will find reading less tiring and more rewarding.
Our adult reading software is home based, with remote oversight, available anywhere in the US or Canada. We monitor progress through automatic uploads after each session. For the best results, adults work 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week for 3-4 months.

Adaptive and Individualized
The software is adaptive so that you work at your own pace. Not only does this mean you won't hit any walls as you progress, it is also efficient -- you spend every minute working only on your specific weaknesses. This adaptivity also creates the intensity required to rewire how you read, a unique feature of our adult dyslexia treatment.
Helping Other Learning Issues In Adults
For many adults, the auditory processing difficulty that undermines reading also makes listening difficult, particularly in noisy rooms.

While our programs focus mainly on learning to read for adults, they also develop other learning skills, such as working memory and attention stamina, that have helped performance in tests.
