Adaptive Brain Training At Home
Our neuroscience-based autism program targets the processing delays at the heart of the autism diagnosis. We combine proven brain training software with professional oversight and involvement.
We almost always make a difference, sometimes profound, because our software interacts with the brain in a way designed to stimulate new neural pathways, new brain function. We help autistic children with:
- Social interaction
Now Available At Home
Our online program allows parents to act as coaches for their autistic children at home, with remote professional oversight. We monitor your child daily, call regularly and report weekly.
Every child is different. The software will adapt and create an individualized path through the program, at your child's pace. In addition, we select exercises and regimens that set your child up for success.
Dr. Michael Merzenich, a co-founder of Fast ForWord, made this ground-breaking discovery:
Children on the autism spectrum make the same errors in language and reading as higher functioning children. They are just making more of them.
This is a watershed event for families with autistic children. Since Fast ForWord is able to rewire the cognitive skills of higher functioning children, as shown on functional MRI's, then why can't its programs help autistic children?
Intensity To Rewire Thinking and Learning
Unlike one-on-one autism programs, Fast ForWord uses adaptive algorithms that react with precision to every click. The software, based on years of study about learning patterns and brain behavior, challenges autistic children to process faster and faster -- every click counts -- creating an intensity that goes beyond what human interaction can achieve.
How the autism software works
Efficacy of Our Program
Behaviors and learning difficulties related to autism vary widely. And therefore program outcomes and definitions of success vary widely. That being said, the anecdotal success of Fast ForWord for autistic children has created real interest in our program. We have had some wonderful feedback from our families.
Testimonials from our parents
While autism is a challenging diagnosis for any single software program, the adaptive nature of Fast ForWord -- its ability to exercise at the margin of cognitive function -- is creating a powerful new potential for this population.
Find Out If We Can Help
Our programs cannot help autism in every case. However, we are able to make a real, and sometimes profound, difference more often than you might think. To find out if we can help your child call for a free consult or contact us here.
